Golfers looking to enjoy some of the best golf that the continent can offer, without having to head to the airport, should take a look at the stunning array of courses located on the northern shores of France’s Côte d’Opale.

So named by 20th century French painter Édouard Lévêque after he became enchanted by this coastline’s iridescent and ever-changing light – the Opal Coast stretches over 75 miles, from Dunkerque and the Belgian border in the east to Berck-sur-Mer in the west, taking in the bustling port cities of Boulogne and Calais, famous for their hypermarkets, superb fish restaurants and easy ferry access to the UK.

Featuring long sandy beaches, punctuated by wild coves, behind whose majestic cliffs lies a green, undulating hinterland, it’s a region heavy with history, but also wonderful gastronomy, a rich culture, and just as importantly, wonderful golf courses – making it an ideal destination to explore for groups large and small.


Boasting 10 superb golf courses divided between seven different clubs, all within a short drive of each other, the Côte d’Opale is the ideal place for a relaxing two-week golf holiday, or even a quick hop over the channel via the tunnel for a long weekend.

With a guaranteed warm welcome and an excellent range of places to stay, from luxury B&Bs and boutique guest houses and Relais, to four and five-star hotels, the region is ready to host a truly memorable golf trip.

The golf courses on the Côte d’Opale each have their own unique and distinct character, from the fortified design of the 27 holes on offer at Dunkerque Grand Littoral, to the rolling countryside of Aa Saint-Omer; from the traditional links of Wimereux, and the sandy forest of Hardelot, to the prestigious history of Le Touquet. And from the bucolic nature of Nampont St Martin and the eco-domain of Belle Dune, all offer golfers an experience to remember.

With great value green fees, uncrowded fairways, and gentle sea breezes cooling you against the summer’s heat, Côte d’Opale is ready to challenge and delight in equal measure.
