Golfing In Europe
One of the great advantages of ferry travel to Europe with a car is that you can pack as much as you like, so keen golfers can take their clubs and enjoy a golfing holiday to Europe. Plus, once you arrive, having your own transport means that some of the world’s greatest courses are easily within reach.
Throughout France, Holland, Belgium and Germany there are courses of every different kind to enjoy and golf holidays in Europe can offer first class play at seaside links, more sculpted parkland courses and wilder heathland.
You’ll also find that clubs are always very welcoming with very reasonable green fees, not to mention fairways that are often far less congested than many that you’ll find back in the UK.
So to create your perfect golf break in Europe why not take a look our guides to courses in France, Holland, Belgium and Germany compiled by experts from
Top 100 Golf Courses.
Golf in France
Just a short ferry ride with a car across the Channel, it’s no surprise that France is one of the most popular destinations for golfers from the UK. It is also home to some of the most beautiful and famous courses in the world, as well as some hidden gems just waiting to be discovered. The north of France, in particular, is a popular and famous golfing destination for British tourists.
Golf in Holland
Many of those in the know will tell you that the courses around Holland’s North Sea coast can rival the links courses in the UK and Ireland. The undulating land gives the feeling of space and room to breathe in the courses, which can make any game feel wide open and relaxing.
Golf in Belgium
Despite its small size, there are 89 affiliated golf clubs in Belgium, with over 56,000 members! Belgium is home to some of the oldest golf courses in continental Europe, and they automatically adopt the name “Royal” when they reach 50 years old, so if you’re looking for a guarantee of heritage and quality, choose a course with Royal in its name.
Golf in Germany
Germany is home to one of the finest European golfers ever, in Bernhard Langer, as well as over 700 golf courses. Most of the best courses are found in the north of the country, due to the light, free-draining soil. Given Germany’s naturally spectacular scenery, it’s no surprise that there are many beautiful areas to golf in the country.
