My five favourite golf courses in France

I would like to write a few posts about one of my hobbies, that is to say golf. Throughout my travels all over the world, I've known many kinds of players and of golf courses. I do believe that golf and aviation are linked, somehow, because the two sports have the pleasure to discover new places and lanscapes in common.
Thanks to my various journeys, I have made a quite personal ranking of my favorite places and golf courses.

Let's begin by my homeland, France.

My five favourite golf courses in France:

- Golf d'Etretat ( playing my favourite sport on these cliffs, made famous by Arsene Lupin, Maupassant, Monet or Corot, is an absolute delight. Not only the golf course is set on an amazing place, just in front of the sea, but the golf course itself is very well designed. The famous N°10 hole is really amazing. It is worth noticing that this golf is often classified among all best French Golfs by "Golf Européen" magazine.

- Golf de la Chouette ( : open during the whole year, not far from Paris. A 18-hole course designed in the magnificent Chateau de la Chouette. Nice landscapes with water obstacles and woods. Very technical and strategical course.

- Golf Terre Blanche ( : amazing golf course located on the French Riviera. Lakes, valleys and waterfalls are the main components of this beautiful course ! Good training techniques and quite rookie-friendly. A really well-thought course.

- Golf de Biarritz "Le Phare" ( ): one of the oldest golf courses of France. Within one Century, Biarritz has become a golf legend. The Biarritz Golf Club organizes many international competitions. Fast greens, cautious roughs.

- Golf de Sologne ( even if nine on eighteen holes are being restored, the golf de Sologne remains one of my favourite courses in France thanks to its huge superficy and to its "rural" landscapes. A real sensation of peace and calm emanates from this very place.

I have not shared my choices with my friend Jack Nicklaus yet but I'm pretty sure that he will agree about at least two or three of these courses.
