ES­SEN­TIALS

Golf World (UK) - - SOUTH WEST -

HOW TO GET THERE It’s far eas­ier to fly than drive, with loads of flights from the UK to both Biar­ritz and es­pe­cially Bordeaux, both ide­ally placed for all the cour­ses men­tioned here. Flight time is around 90 min­utes, so up then down.

WHEN TO GO The south-west of France may not en­joy the out­stand­ing cli­mate of the south east, but be­tween May and Septem­ber you’ll be unlucky to get any­thing other than glo­ri­ous sun­shine. Bet­ter still, with sev­eral of the cour­ses men­tioned here built on sandy soil, Aquitaine is also a very de­cent short-haul win­ter op­tion.
