Golf in Aquitaine
There are over 55 golf courses in the region of Aquitaine. Golf de Barthe, a superb nine hole course of impressively high quality, is right on our doorstep. If you’d prefer to explore the region a little more, there are seven other courses within a half hour drive, located at Marmande, Castelnaud-de-Gratecambe, Villeneuve sur Lot, Madaillan, Eymet, Pomport, and Monster. Alternatively, there are fifteen other courses within an hour drive, making twenty-two in easy reach. As traffic is generally low density in Aquitaine, the region arguably offers easier opportunities to enjoy golf than many other more recognised golf destinations.
The climate is ideal for play most of the year round. During the summer it is advisable to play early, as daytime temperatures can reach over 30°C (86°F). There may be the odd summer storm, but this will only serve to hydrate the grass! Winter play is infrequently interrupted, though precipitation may occur in December and January.
We will use this page to gradually provide more information about the local golf courses, but in the meantime they can all be found on the Aquitaine tourist board website.
