One of the Best Golf Courses of Europe
People who visit Biarritz and the Basque Coast have the opportunity of choosing among 12 golf courses with a great variety of difficulties and scenery.
The Golf du Phare course, within the city limits, dominates the beautiful beach and lighthouse. It was created by the English community in 1888 and is a charming place. The other courses are Chiberta, La Nivelle, Chantado, Souraïde, Hondarribia, Hossegor, Arcangues, Seignosse, Moliets and Bassury.
And now, Europe has a unique international training center: the Ilbarritz International Golf Training Centre in Biarritz, located at the edge of the sea and with an area of 26 hectares (64 acres). The center offers a video workshop, a 9 hole course and teaches enthusiasts of the sport all the modern techniques that will improve their game.
Biarritz hosts four important international competitions of the 30 held in the region: the Biarritz Cup (the oldest, created in 1889, with 600 participants, in the Golf du Phare course at the end of July), the one held at the Makila Golf Club (Ascension weekend, with 700 participants), the Pro-Am International of Biarritz and the Teen’s Tournament (for those under 18).
A province very active in golf, the Basque Coast, Landes and the Bordeaux region invite you to play in a spectacular ambiance of gorgeous scenery while enjoying the elegant hospitality and some of the best cuisine of southwest France.
