Golf Holidays in France
Golf Breaks To France With French Leave Holidays
Thinking of Golf Holidays in France? It really is the perfect golf destination. An ideal mix of delicious food, rich culture, amazing art, and fantastic courses all with their own regional differences. If that is not enough, the sun-drenched climate of the southern half of the country intensified along the Mediterranean offers an extended golf season.
There are over 500 courses spread across the country’s four corners and it is growing in popularity, especially after the success of the Ryder Cup in Paris.
Compared with 1.5m registered golfers in the UK, France has only 400k. Tee time availability is usually good although on most courses. Some of the popular “bucket list” courses may understandably be busy so booking in advance is always advisable.
Golf Holidays to France By Car
The ferry port terminals are connected to France’s excellent motorway network. This makes it easy to just pack your gear and arrive in time for some practice and enjoy an aperitif on the terrace while studying the course layout in preparation of your first round.
Eurotunnel Le Shuttle
Taking your own car on the Eurotunnel Le Shuttle offers you total freedom. It is one of the most convenient and economical ways of travelling to France. You can plan a crossing time to suit your needs and enjoy the convenience of packing everything you want. Crossings only take 35 minutes from Folkestone to Calais, the fastest way to get to the continent by car.
The service operates round the clock, 365 days a year.
Choose from up to 4 departures an hour during peak periods – no other cross-Channel operator offers you more choice.
With its own motorway junction (11a M20), access to the Passenger Terminal could not be simpler. Prior to boarding the shuttles, you will pass through both UK and French frontier controls. On arrival you simply drive off the shuttle and onto the European motorway network. The Eurotunnel experience is simple and hassle free and over 1 million motorists each year choose this option. You can upgrade to FlexiPlus to benefit from a dedicated check-in, exclusive lounge serving complimentary non-alcoholic drinks, snacks and priority boarding on the next available shuttle.
Golf Holidays to France by Air
Travelling by Air
Most of the UK airports have at least one flight to France’s 170 arrival points. There are good value fares and short flight times. So, if you forget your golf shoes at home (although not advisable), it might be possible to pop back to get them without breaking the bank and still make your tee time.
Our French Leave Holidays flight-inclusive packages are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. Please refer to our booking conditions or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL certificate visit www.atol.org.uk/ATOLCertificate
Golf Holidays to France by Train
Travelling by Train
French National Railways (SNCF) has an extensive rail network with direct Eurostar and great onward connecting services. Some courses are a short taxi ride from the nearest train station. Like all public transport, there are fewer luggage restrictions so taking your own equipment is easy if you are prepared to transit with your bags between platforms and trains.
