Taking your own car to the Continent for your next golf holiday offers you total freedom and is one of the most convenient and economical ways of getting to the Continent!
Plan a crossing time to suit your golfing tee times and enjoy the convenience of travelling to your destination with everything you need packed in the boot of your car.
With a crossing time of only 35 minutes from Folkestone to Calais, Eurotunnel offers the fastest Channel crossing with your car and the quickest route to the fairways! Its reliable service operates round the clock, 365 days a year, taking the hassle out of travelling to the Continent. Choose from up to 3 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 which means on arrival in France, you simply drive off the shuttle and onto the European motorway network.
Whilst onboard, relax in the comfort of your own car during the short 35 minute crossing. The Eurotunnel experience is simple and hassle free - no wonder they are the preferred choice for over 1 million motorists each year.
Choose to hop across - or under! - the Channel with Eurotunnel and you will be presented with a glorious collection of top class golf courses and picturesque town. Soak up the ambience and sample the gastronomic delights as part of the quintessential French experience, or even head slightly further afield to Belgium.
Golf in Le Touquet and Hardelot is the stuff of legend with UK golfers, and these golfing hot spots are just a short drive from Calais. Pair them with our specially selected hotels and enjoy a fabulous golf break in France. Alternatively, make Pas-de-Calais your first stop on route to the French Riviera or the South West Atlantic coast, popular with summer travellers.
