You don’t have to drive far in France or Spain to find some beautiful courses. You’ll be impressed by the variety and quality to be enjoyed. On top of that, it’s surprisingly inexpensive and un-crowded.
Then there’s the après golf… both in the club house and beyond you’ll find many locals take their food and drink more seriously than their golf!
And remember, by taking your car you’ll be free to try a range of courses and free to pack all the gear you need safely in the boot with no extras to pay!
With Brittany Ferries, your holiday starts when you check-in.

France is a world apart from the UK and yet it is only a short hop across the channel. With its outstanding cuisine, wine, cheeses and unique ambience, the après-golf is part of what makes a golf break in France so memorable.
