FGL001 Golf International Barriere La Baule Golf International Barrière La Baule

Golf International Barrière La Baule, St André des Eaux

Glenn Hoddle's England squad were based here for the 1998 World Cup, and, knowing how fussy those top flight footballers can be, that means it has to be right up there with the very best. West of Nantes, in the Brière national park, La Baule boasts two 18 hole championship courses and a nine hole lay out, making 45 in total ... not forgetting a covered practice area and two putting greens.

The thatched roofed clubhouse overlooks the outdoor swimming pool. The original Peter Alliss and Dave Thomas design, since revamped and expanded, played host to the French Open so some holes offer the chance to follow in the footsteps of Nick Faldo and Seve Ballesteros.

The old Red (now Lucien Barrière) course winds through mature woodland, skirts a huge lake around the turn and boasts impressive bunkers; while Blue (renamed Diane Barrière-Desseigne) is even longer and equally challenging with narrow fairways and some treacherous water hazards, particularly on the closing stretch. Free trolley hire when playing this course.

FGL003 Golf de la Bretesche Golf de la Bretesche

Golf de la Bretesche, Missillac

Laid out by the legendary Henry Cotton nearly 50 years ago this is a special golf course due mainly to its spectacular setting and immaculate condition. At Missillac near St Nazaire, at the mouth of the mighty river Loire, the focal point is a fairytale château with turrets, towers, battlements, drawbridge, moat and tranquil lake. And surrounding this imposing centrepoint is a great forest with colourful hydrangeas and rhododendrons skirting the narrow fairways traditionally cut in a cross hatch chessboard style.

The velvet greens are well protected by pristine white sand bunkers, but it's a fair test and, as it's fairly flat, good for walking. Hit it straight, stay out of the trees and you should be fine ... just don't forget to drink in those views of a château that could be straight out of a Disney film. After your round relax in the stone clubhouse or maybe the hotel, all in tastefully converted outbuildings of the old estate. Free trolley hire when playing this course.

FGL002 Golf de Savenay Golf de Savenay

Golf de Savenay

Between Nantes and St Nazaire, this is a spectacularly beautiful course on the edge of the Brière marshes and close to the beaches of La Baule. It has a very varied terrain with chestnut woods, open valleys and water. If you play in the morning you might be faced with a cool mist as an added hazard.

FGL005 Golf de Pornic Golf de Pornic

Golf de Pornic

At the heart of the seaside resort of Pornic this 18 hole golf course has plenty of variety to offer, with the first 5 holes set in hilly and wooded landscape with wide fairways whilst the remainder is far more like a links course with undulating fairways, water hazards and very well defended greens.

This course, with its seaside location, guarantees you a summer atmosphere throughout the year.
