In 2008-2009 Brittany is offering the Free Bretagne Golf Pass, which reduces green fees by 20%. Also adding to the region’s offering is the Golf de la Freslonnière, having recently opened a new children’s golf area and launched a student discount to their beginner course.
In fact ‘Golf de la Freslonnière,‘ near to the capital Rennes, has opted to encourage a whole new generation of golfers through the creation of a more family friendly area aimed at 4-6 year olds. The area is an educational introduction to the game allowing them to take their first shots in a fun and safe environment. In addition, they are offering students the opportunity to have one day access to the beginner’s course for 6 euros on presentation of their student card.
Brittany boasts 34 golf courses, from dramatic coastal challenges to wooded inland retreats – the region caters for all tastes and abilities and there are many examples of the excellent courses across the region. Notably, Brittany plays host to the second oldest golf course in France, designed by Scotsman Tom Dunn at Dinard. This course has an interesting art deco club house and provides excellent coastal views.
The course at Belle-Isle-en-Mer is a true links course and is situated next to the Sarah Bernhardt castle. It also boasts a green surrounded by the sea at the second hole, something unique to the golf course across all of Europe.
From windswept links, stately Chateau’s to rural campsites, a round of golf in Brittany has something to suit all tastes.
The Bretagne Golf Pass is a scheme that allows golf enthusiasts to receive 20% discount off green fees on 22 golf courses in Brittany (with the exception of Dinard and Rennes Saint-Jacques which offer a 15% discount).
