The golf weekend was a great success, Le Touquet is fantastic. Easy to get to and a great atmospehere. Hardelot Les Pins was also a stunning course and a great choice from Simon. Probably the best course I have played in eons and everyone was blowed away by it. Great quality greens and fairways and wonderful landscaping and elevations. Great relaxed atmosphere too, we will be coming back to Le Touquet as a group in the next year or so for sure. Kind regards,

La Mer Course
La Mer is Golf du Touquet's crowning glory, and has frequently hosted prestigious professional tournaments, including the French Open on numerous occasions. Opened in 1931, the course is distinctly reminiscent of a Scottish links, thanks to designer Harry Colt, who is beast known for his projects at Sunningdale, Wentworth and St. George's Hill. Measuring 6,862 yards, La Mer overlooks the wild dunes and the Channel coastline, and is without doubt one of France's most prestigious destinations.
“If you love links golf, you will absolutely love La Mer. The course is in fantastic condition with some really beautiful holes framed by the surrounding dunes. It’s more open than many of the other courses in Northern France which will appeal to those who might spray it a bit off the tee. The course is more exposed to the coast so wind is certainly a factor. Very impressive – an absolute treat to play.” - Mark Crossfield, PGA Professional
Local tip: Take a climb up the stairs to the viewing platform behind the tee on the 18th to enjoy spectacular views over the links.

La Foret Course
La Foret is the oldest course at Golf du Touquet, having been inaugurated in 1904. In stark contrast to its rugged sister course, La Foret is carved through stunning pine woodland with some beautiful holes. At 6,365 yards, La Foret is not particularly long, but Horace Hutchinson's creation demands accuracy from the tee, especially in the summer when the fairways are hard and bouncy.
"La Foret is a lovely tree-lined course. I was really pleasantly surprised. Much more parkland compared with the sibling La Mer, which makes for quite an interesting contrast. Both courses are very fair and make for a terrific test of golf." - Mark Crossfield, PGA Professional

Signature hole-No. 12 (La Mer):Par 4, 367 metres (SI 7
The signature hole at La Mer is a great example of the Links golf on offer at Le Toquet. From the tee, the hole plays to a narrow fairway, and with dunes either side, it is important to make sure the drive is in play. However, like many holes on La Mer, a strong wind coming from the coast on the left hand side makes this a particularly challenging task. The approach shot continues in typical links fashion and is played from an undulated fairway, onto a green with a large run off. This makes it particularly important to be precise with the shot, as 2 inches could be the difference between a good shot, and one which rolls 20 yards off the green. A fantastic golf hole featuring all the best traits of links golf!
Golf du Touquet has a dedicated short game practice area and a 20-bay driving range with both grass and artificial grass, while local caddies are also available on request.

We've just had a great three days in Le Touquet with a couple of friends. Thank you for making all the arrangements for us. We travelled to France via Eurotunnel which was so easy and flexible; the number plate recognition system works really well. We stayed at Le Manoir and played La Foret and La Mer twice. Both courses were in good condition, La Foret is quite forgiving but La Mer is a real challenge. Le Manoir was very easy to find. It was comfortable, with good food, and very helpful staff. The drinks quite expensive and the WiFi was a bit hit and miss.
I would have no hesitation about recommending a golf trip, organised by yourgolftravel. I will also recommend Le Manoir to friends. Infact, I will probably do so this afternoon, as we're off to a BBQ with a group of golfing friends to watch the final round of the Open.
As far as a score out of 10 is concerned, I'd say 8 - and I'm not easily pleased!
I have just come back from a 1 night golf break at Le Touquet, we stayed at Le Manoir hotel and played La Foret and La Mer courses over two days.
Firstly would just like to thank Your Golf Travel for the excellent advice regarding the courses: our group contains one ex-professional and a novice. I am the novice and therefore I am always apprehensive about the difficulty of courses. YGT reassured me that I would find the course challenging but playable, and based on his advice, we booked. He was so right! Although I did indeed find the courses challenging (especially La Mer), I played the best I have ever played and walked away from the second day being the winner!!
We all had a fantastic time at the hotel and on the course. The location of the hotel, right next to the courses was perfect and we really enjoyed the fantastic hospitality at the hotel and the clubhouse. With the weather being so perfect, we could easily have stayed another day or two but we made the best of the couple of days, also taking time to have a look round Le Touquet itself, which was fantastic; we will definitely return!
The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel itself was lovely with great ambience and lovely food. The organisation of the trip by Your Golf Travel was excellent, from boarding Eurotunnel right through to having the buggies ready for us when we arrived, it all ran smoothly, all in all it was a fantastic break for all of us.
I would have no hesitation in booking via your company again and we are looking forward to booking our next break for 2014. Will leave a positive recommendation on Tripadvisor!
Thanks again for your recommendation and advice and for enabling us to have a truly memorable break.
