A temperate climate with seemingly endless sunshine makes the Poitou-Charentes region of France a great place to play golf, whatever the time of year. With 20 courses offering coastal or country, the appeal and quality are widely recognised. Undulating fairways, large bunkers, challenging water hazards and narrow doglegs amongst a backdrop of broom bushes, sand dunes, vineyards and beautiful lakes require some seriously accurate golf! Offering 9, 18 and 27 hole courses, electric buggies and restaurant facilities; what more could you need from this truly magnificent region? Why not try Golf de Royan (18 hole), its challenging layout winding through the pine forest of La Courbre along the Atlantic Coast.
