There are 28 golf courses in or near the area covered by this site. The greens and fairways are permanently green, the soil base of varying mixtures of rock, blue clay and sand all retain and trap the moisture throughout the year (unlike the regions of Provence and southern Spain which can be dry and arid), and most of the courses here are adjacent to the large rivers which flow through the departments. The rest is just good grounds management.

Many courses have electric buggies, club houses and putting greens. All are playable 52 weeks a year because of the mild climate, though after heavy rain t.hey can get a bit muddy. There are courses for beginners, courses for long handicappers and challenging courses for the experienced golfer. Green fees have become reasonable in recent years. Most courses charge more at weekends and during the tourist season (generally July and August).

The South West of France has a long tradition of golf playing, the course PAU - BILLERE (15 on the map) being the oldest club in contental Europe, created for and by the British Army in 1856.

We at 123VOYAGE do not have enough time to play golf, alas, so we would like to hear what you think of the various golf clubs so that we can update this part of the guide with more details of the courses.
