Our golf trip to Le Touquet went very well so thanks goes to Your Golf Travel for the fast and efficient organisation. This was my first time through the Eurotunnel and I was impressed by how hassle free it all was. Definitely more convenient than flying, hiring clubs, packing light etc, etc.
We arrived at Le Manoir hotel quite a few hours before our check in time but they were only too happy to let us move in to our rooms immediately. The rooms were clean, neat and tidy; just as one would expect from a top class hotel. Breakfast in France would be hard to ruin, so that was fine, and the meal in the evening was superb.
The golf was fine as the weather helped on that front, but I think that the courses had been busy this summer, especially La Foret, which was looking a little tired. It was a superb layout though and I would imagine throughout the main season, would be well kept. La Mer was in better condition, also with a good lay out, with one particular green in the middle of the course that was so quiet that I could almost hear the grass bending as my ball rolled over it towards the hole...for my fourth birdie of the day! Les Dunes was in the best condition of the three golf courses. It was a course that was quite short in length but made up for this by the narrowness of the fairways and the tall and seemingly very wide pine trees.
All in all the golf break was great and we had an absolute blast. I look forward to repeating our French golf tour again next year.
