Smallwater lakes, Carp fishing France in the Aquitaine.
Great holiday ideas & holiday activities for all the Family.
France may not be the obvious choice of destination for a golfing
holiday. Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Scotland are probably more natural choices.
However, golf is a boom sport in France and has been for 10 years or so now. Thankfully, it hasnít picked up the snooty side of the game prevalent in some UK and US clubs Ė the French treat the game much more informally.
In fact, you probably didnít know that golf in France started in the Aquitaine. Whatís more, golf in continental Europe started in Aquitaine! Thatís right, Pau Golf Club (founded 1856) was the first course built in Europe outside of the British Isles. And Biarritz Le Phare (founded 1889) was the second! Seven of Aquitaine's 40+ courses date back to pre-war times.
Not only does Aquitaine have a rich heritage of golf, the pedigree is very high, with clusters of great golf courses around the Biarritz and Bordeaux areas in particular. Youíll also enjoy lower prices and less crowds than the South of France golf courses.
So, if you are looking for a memorable golf holiday, or youíre simply looking to sneak a couple of rounds in whilst on a family holiday, then the Aquitaine is an excellent choice and Smallwater lakes chalet & lodge accommodation are central to all the golf coarses in the area.
