Golf Courses at Le Touquet Golf
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 had a great time at Le Touquet. Only half and hour from Calais, it was dead easy to get to and the welcome was immediate and warm - they are clearly used to catering for the British travelling golfer. Le Mer was an excellent course to play. True, we couldn’t actually see le Mer from the course but that was the only low point. The course wound it’s way through a vast area of dune land (you could have easily fitted another course within the space) which meant to never felt pressured for space or time. For me, the course really grew on me as we played. The greens were excellent, the approaches strong; some tee shots were elevated to offer great views (none more so than on 18). Thanks yourgolftravel for making our trip happen!
Lovely course, little bit of wild boar trouble, but they are doing their best to keep on top of it.
Great course for any handicap.
Very good will be going back
The course was not in the best of conditions & is no doubt overplayed by visiting Brits. The clubhouse is very modern with excellent facilities.
great set up .staff very friendly
Absolutely superb golf course. I have played in the USA, Turkey, Portugal and all over the UK and this Rates up there with anything I have ever played.
Some nice holes but perhaps not the most interesting of courses. Clubhouse very big and corporate
Great course, and very playable for all handicaps although with the wind it can play significantly longer/shorter depending on whether you are into or with it. All 18 holes were good and offered different challenges - there were no boring holes at all - and the greens had some great undulations and ran very true. It is like the best of Links Golf in the UK (very reminiscent to Hillside GC, by Royal Birkdale). Reachable par 5s, some great but challenging short par 3s with crazy drop offs, and a number of risk reward par 4s. Thoroughly enjoyable round and would highly recommend anyone to play it.
Best greens I’ve ever played, makes you think about everything!
La Foret was a very nice course, quite flat and easier than la mer. Greens and fairways were in great condition.The club house was excellent.
La mer was quite a hard course, the greens and fairways were in great condition. The greens were very undulating but interesting.A buggy is suggested because the distance from green to tee on some holes was quite a walk.
a bit windy! back to the bar by 4.15 but no food available - they should have warned us to pre-order
