Le Touquet (La Forêt) - Golf Course in France

About Le Touquet (La Forêt)


The la foret course at le touquet was designed by horace hutchinson and opened for play in 1904. The course was inaugurated by lord balfour, the british prime minister at the time, breaking the conventional ribbon and then playing a round. Half of the course was demolished after the first world war, but it was quickly rebuilt so that tournaments could resume at la forêt. The architecture was ordered to be renovated in 1958 by philip mackenzie ross.

La foret is nestled amid pine trees, offering a peaceful and pleasant atmosphere for all golfers, regardless of handicap. Although the fairways aren't as big as la mer's, la foret's greens are narrow and delicate, making it a tough goal to achieve.

This isn't the longest course you'll ever see, but the par four 13th, which stretches 421 meters, is a must-play. and, like la mer, there's no sitting on your laurels here! A number of new course reforms have been made, including changes to the 8th (stroke index 1), which are much more equitable. The 14th and 15th holes, as well as the 11th and 14th greens, have recently been upgraded.

La foret is a great complement to the more well-known la mer, and a 9-hole course called "le manoir," which is par 35 and 2,800 meters long, is located inside the la foret's routing and is suitable for beginners. Le touquet is unquestionably a full-service golf resort.
