Golf de Wimereux

Ranked inside the top 100 courses in Europe, Golf de Wimereux is also one of the oldest clubs in the region. Having been originally founded in 1901, the course suffered severe damage from the war and was refurbished by Campbell and Hutchinson.

The traditional seaside layout of the courses means it provides golfers with stunning views out towards the English Channel and on a clear day of the white cliffs of Dover. The course may only measure 6,700 yards from the tips but the traditional and tactically placed links pot bunkers mean a trip to sand is almost certainly going to cost you a shot.
