Eight male golfers, Sunday to Thursday.
I’ll start this review off by saying “this trip was very close to perfect”.
All booked through Yourgolf Travel, the journey via Eurotunnel, the stay at the Red Fox Hotel and the golf at Le Touquet was seamless in its process. Everything happened as and when it should do and all as pre-arranged by Yourgolf. Even the weather was unseasonably hot and sunny. What more could we have all asked for.!!
Red Fox Hotel. Rooms across the road in their annex. Basic, but clean and tidy. Beds made each day. Only minor issue was no tea/coffee facilities in the room, which can be nice certain times of the day. But, as I said, minor issue.
Continental breakfast in main hotel. Nothing exceptional, just enough to kick-start your day and get you set for your golf.
Obviously, it’s a town centre hotel and rooms to the street are not going to be quiet. Early morning deliveries and waste collections etc can take a while to get used to.
Personally, we were so tired we weren’t overly bothered.!!
Three courses, approx 15 minutes easy drive at Du Touquet Golf Complex.
Day One. Le Manoir, 9 hole only but a pleasant start to the holiday.
Days two and four, Le Foret. Testing course, good for all handicap levels.
Days Three and Five, La Mer. Links style course, excellent lay-out and superb to play.
All in all, a beautiful golfing experience, especially if the weather is good.
Le Touquet Town.
Beautiful place, clean, many restaurants and bars and good place to relax after a good day on the course. Possibly a bit too relaxed for the younger visitor and aimed more for the more mature golfer who’s not looking for the party life at night.
As this resort is just 50-60 minutes down the coast from Calais, it makes it an easy get to destination from the UK. The journey by car was easy and straight forward. So, over-all, a great place to golf and stay.
