Le Kempferhof has received critical acclaim since its opening, culminating in 2005 when the Peugeot Golf Guide, equivalent to the Michelin Guide for restaurants, ranked it second in its list of France's best.
Designed by the American golf architect Robert Von Hagge, who is also responsible for other outstanding projects in France and Belgium, the course is 6,588 yards from the tips, which is not particularly long by modern standards, but the slope rating of 145 is evidence of how challenging Le Kempferhof is from the back tees.
There are tees to suit every player, and all are sure to enjoy the perfectly manicured fairways and greens around this French gem, that is a highlight of a golf holiday in the Champagne and Alsace regions.
Le Kempferhof is also home to a highly respected golf academy, where you can consult the resident teachers for expert instruction.
Plaudits for the golf course have come from Bernhard Langer and Jean van de Velde among others - if they like it then surely you will too!
Le Kempferhof is ranked as one of the best courses in France
Le Kempferhof is what is often referred to in modern parlance as a ‘boutique hotel'; the accommodation is housed within a remarkable conversion of a traditional stately home, with 29 bedrooms and suites, every one of which is individually named and themed in honour of a movie star.
The rooms are divided between the original house and its tasteful annex, and provide outstanding 4* luxury accommodation, leaving guests relaxed and revitalized, ready for the challenge of the legendary golf course at its borders. Just a short drive from the city of Strasbourg, Le Kempferhof is a high class destination, and makes for a magnificent holiday for the avid golfer.
The hotel's head chef fuses the most interesting flavours of the region with the finest Alsatian wine.
Strasbourg's most renowned dining room is Au Crocodile, so named when Captain Ackerman returned from Egypt with a stuffed crocodile; chef Emile Jung has compiled a menu that epitomizes the finest French cuisine.
