Golf de St.Jean de Monts (below) is rated as one of the top 30 courses in France and is a unique layout situated right on the coast.  The course combines a front 9 which threads its way through a pine forest and a back 9 reminiscent of the great Open Championship links courses of the North West of England or Scotland.  It is always in great condition due to its sandy sub-soil and an excellent test for all golfers. It is also very reasonably priced with a round during low season in 2012 only €39.

Golf des Fontenelles is also a great course, well laid out, established and attractive with a number of distinctive holes offering a fair challenge.  The practice facilities are particularly good with covered driving range, large putting green and separate full size practice green.  
There is a well stocked Pro Shop from which the hire of clubs and buggies can be arranged and a Golf Brasserie open every day serving excellent food and drinks.

Golf des Fontenelles is also a part of the Blue Green Group which offers a number of green fee and golf pass options for use on any of it's courses.  Currently a pass offering 2 full days golf for any course costs around €70 euros each between October and March.
