The little town of Le Touquet seems straight out of Grimm's Fairy Tales, and the golf course there fits right in. True, some modern apartment buildings have gone up in recent years, but the town has generally maintained its historic charm. The Golf Du Touquet club features two courses, of which the Mer is a triumph of dunes fringed with heather. The Mer has been through a lot: having peaked in popularity in the Interwar years, bombs then claimed the clubhouse and four holes, and in ensuing decades the course was neglected and poorly maintained. Recent management has done much to restore the Mer to its original glory; with the lost holes having been replaced, players may once again partake of some vintage golf in a wonderful setting. And while not all of the maintenance issues have been resolved, there has been a noted improvement over the past few years.

Played here twice whilst having a long weekend stay in France. Myself and my partner played both courses in the wet, wind and bitter cold but soldiered through, albeit drenched, we had a fantastic time!! Course #1 Lé Mer - very challenging course. Perhaps the hardest of the two boasting very challenging greens and fairways - rather undulated which is a rarety in some low key courses. Many of the greens are up and down and rarely flat but offers great challenge to any golfer. It must be noted although it’s a challenging course it is still playable and does make you think about your shots. None of the “ah tree, I’ll go over that”. The course Lé Mer is a par 72 with many par 3s, 4s, 5s all misleading you to think your a good golfer then punishes you in the green areas and states just how much of a bad choice thinker you are!! However having said that, the course allows you to make the choices and will punish you for any bad ones! A brilliant course and a good way to start your first of 2 rounds!! Course #2 Lé Foret perhaps the easiest of the two boasting a lot more forgiveness of the fairway along with more sight to the pin! Fair few dog leg rights and left but manageable with the correct choices. This course allows a course par of 71 and again gives its fair share of thought! It allows you to believe it’s a straight smash down the fairway when in reality you probably want to lay up just short of the bunker - oh did I mention there’s at least 2-4 bunkers on each hole . The bunkers however do offer ways out round the sides however if you are feeling brave then go over the top, fail, and you’re trapped for another 7-8 shots . I have to say that playing both these courses has been a pleasure. Good greens, well cut fairways and smooth tee boxes. There is some winter repairs ongoing but that is encouraging to see that the golf club is taking the game serious for the summer. As we played in the winter we couldn’t grumble when only 3 tees and greens were temp per course. The winter greens were cut well and not just hashed, a major problem in English Golf!! We walked the first course and rented a buggy on the second. A buggy costs €42.00 which sounds quite extortionate but it does have GPS Sat Nav, hole by hole walk through and score card - so kind of makes it worth while!! We did have a sticky situation where the battery ran out on hole #13 however a quick call to the pro shop and another buggy arrived within 5 minutes to which they swapped the clubs over and away we went!! The pro shop and restaurant speak good English despite my awful attempts at French. Although I successfully ordered a Hot Chocolate or should I say Chord Chocolat yeah thanks!! This golf course is brilliant for a relaxing day of golf. The course was not busy albeit we played in the winter but it was nice not having the chasers!! A brilliant few days golf for me and my girlfriend and a brilliant time had! Will definitely be back in the near future and hopefully play even better than we did this time!!⛳️⛳️⛳️⛳️⛳️ Thanks a million to all the staff and happy golfing to the next lot of golfers!!
