The AA Saint Omer club is known for its scenic views and, although the cream of the sport compete there in an annual European tour event each June, it is suitable for players of all abilities.
The Belle Dune golf club is surrounded by a nature reserve and can offer challenging conditions, especially when it is windy, while Arras Golf is also recommended to players, who are advised to avoid the rough by investing in
sports travel insurance. Meanwhile, Le Touquet La Mer is said to be an "outstanding" links course which can prove unforgiving to less experienced players.
