NON GOLFERS WELCOME

France is probably the best golf destination for… non golfers !
At France Golf Tours, we welcome non-golfing companions. We provide visits to castles, cathedrals, museums and historical villages. You can also enjoy French way of life through a market visit or cooking class with an executive chef, shopping tours through emerging French designer districts and visits to renowned French  spas.

THE COUNTRY OF GOOD LIVING

France Golf Tours pay homage to the worldwide renowned tradition of >French gastronomy.
When you travel with France Golf Tours, we play the French way, offering a gastronomic delight on the back of every green. Do not expect a hot dog half-way of the course.
This is the land of foie gras, canard and truffle dishes. And that’s even before mentioning the ‘real’ unpasteurised cheeses.

CLIMATE

The temperate climate in France allows you to play golf all year round. Provence, French Riviera or Pays Basque (Biarritz), to name a few, have no idea what a winter green looks like.

DO YOU SPEAK FRENCH ?

Slice is a slice, green is a green, divot is a divot, birdie is a birdie…French golf resist all attempts by Academie Française to supplant them with escalopes or oiselets
All the people in the French golf clubs speak English, as do your France Golf Tours guides.
As far as you know how to say bonjour (good day), au revoir (good bye), merci (thanks), encore du vin s’il vous plait (some more wine please), …you will survive !

FRENCH GOLF HISTORY

Golf is an old story in France. The first course has been built in 1856 in Pau (first golf course in all Continental Europe).
Even more, the first Non British golfer to win the British Open was the French player Arnaud Massy in 1907.
The first…but unfortunately the last !
