So, the ski season is over and you’re wondering what to do with your summer. In La Tania there is a whole host of outdoor activities which are perfect for a boys’ summer holiday, and high on your list of things to do should be golf. Swap the skis for the clubs and soak in the amazing views of the French Alps seen from some of France’s most popular golf courses. |
Taking it Easy
Set in between the Mont Blanc range and the massif of the Aiguille Rouges, you’ll find the Chamonix course. With 18 holes to play across a smooth level surface, this is the ideal course for a chilled-out game between friends. You’ll be playing amongst bunkers, water holes, woodland and streams, while soaking up the breathtaking mountain views. If you are new to golf, or just want to take it a bit slower, Chamonix is for you.
For those who would like a little more challenging game of golf, the Les Arcs course offers terrain with a few more slopes to climb. You can challenge yourself or your friends while overlooking the Tarentaise Valley, if the slopes don’t tire you out first. You’ll find 18 holes surrounded by open parkland and mountain scenery, making for a perfect summer in La Tania.
Often described as one of the most beautiful golf courses in France, at Méribel you’ll be golfing under the Blanchot piste. Challenge yourself even further on this super hilly course, ranging from altitudes of 1,565km to 1850km. As one of Méribel’s biggest summer attractions you can take part in competitions happening throughout the season. Make use of the advantage the altitude offers: golf balls will fly faster than at sea level, so those competition prizes could be yours!
Still not satisfied? Try the highest golf course in Europe. Located at 2,100 metres above sea level, you’ll nearly be golfing in the clouds at Tignes. With obstacles such as lakes, streams and gullies, this course is perfect for a seasoned golfer looking to challenge themselves. Victory will taste even sweeter looking over the amazing views of the glacier, lake and surrounding mountains.
New and Unexpected
So, if you’re looking for a new way to spend your holiday, pick up a new sport or to make yourself an even better golfer, the French Alps are the perfect place to spend the summer in.
