Why choose a golf holiday?
Enjoy a round of golf in the grounds of a grand chateaux, try a links course with Atlantic breezes and spectacular views for company, or spend the afternoon negotiating the immaculate fairways of a course alongside the Italian Adriatic.
Golf is flourishing as a sport in Europe. As a result there are an increasing number of courses offering excellent conditions - whether you’re an expert or beginner - for an extra-special game, in the warm summer sun. We’ve plenty of parcs with courses right on site, and plenty more with excellent courses (happy to welcome day visitors) close by.
There’s a wealth of different courses to choose from too - which makes it all the more exciting. The beauty of golf is that each course is a different experience. From the rough grassy scrub of some of France’s links courses, to the fiendishly sloping and bumpy fairways of some of our favourite courses on the sunny Spanish Costas. So don’t expect to find all golf courses to be similar. Like our parcs, each one is unique.
