Just got back from our 2011 golf holiday in Deauville and we had an amazing time so thanks Your Golf Travel for your excellent recommendation and organisation. Here are a few notes on our exploits...
We stayed at the Normandy Barriere Hotel which was just perfect for a relaxing stay. Our room was lovely; very French in style and supremely comfortable. Delicious food is on offer in both the American Bar and the La Belle Epoque restaurant so you never really need to leave the hotel but if you’re the adventurous type the location makes exploring the town centre and trips to the beach a doddle.
Both of the golf courses you recommended were perfect for our requirements. The Barriere de St Julien felt less established than the Barriere Deauville course but we really enjoyed it nonetheless. The course was a manageable length for both my wife and I and the views are amazing. The Julien clubhouse is a converted farm building and was quite charming and friendly.The Championship Course at Barriere Deauville was outstanding. Perfect fairways and greens and testing for both men and ladies. Both courses suited us as I could play from the white tees at approximately 7,000 yards and my wife from the reds at roughly 5,000 yards. The practice facilities and ranges at both clubs were good.
Overall we had an excellent golf break and would thoroughly recommend booking a Eurotunnel golf break with Your Golf Travel as it gave us the freedom to take everything we needed and go anywhere we wanted.
