We stayed at the Hotel Red Fox, right in the centre of the town. We had been told the accommodation was “basic”, well if that is basic then I’ll have it every time. The room I stayed in was large with a very good two basin en-suit bathroom. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast was self service with more than enough selections to fill you up for the day’s golf ahead. The Hotel was very accommodating to allow us to use the dining room for our end of tour presentation.
Now the golf, it was excellent. La Mer was a good test for the first day to get us in the swing. Regrettably we had rain for the first two days, quite heavy at times but the courses withstood the downpours, no risk of greens flooding. Our Second day was at Golf de Belle Dune, just short of one hours drive south of Le Touquet, an absolutely pristine course and a good challenge. Obviously very popular as it was quite busy, even though we got soaked, again. We all commented that we will have to go back to play it when the weather is more conducive to good golf (tells its own tale). The next was Les Dunes at Hardelot. A half hour easy drive, arriving at 9.30am for 10.03 tee. Not a golfer in sight and an excellent course all to ourselves. The Club house facilities were excellent and top class, as was the reception in the Pro Shop, they couldn’t be more helpful.
Our final day was La Foret in Le Touquet. Not very challenging and although it was dry for a change, we were not too impressed. So next year it has to be Les Pins at Hardelot, as recommended by other golfers staying at The Red Fox.
As said earlier, the Red Fox Hotel was ideally situated in the centre of the town with easy access to the some wonderful restaurants and bars frequented by many golfers, although we did not see them on the courses.
This was our first visit to Le Touquet and there is no doubt we will be going again.
