The highest compliment I can pay La Mer is that if it was in a more golf-centric location it would be ranked so much higher. That said, the location is actually perfect, Le Touquet is a beautiful destination, and the right balance between tourist destination and undiscovered gem.
The course itself could be twinned with Royal St Davids, they bear so many similarities, from the opening hole to the last I was constantly comparing it to the best (in my opinion) in Wales, and its stylistically so similar, as well as having what all great courses do, a perfect balance, you play well round here, you'll find it easy, you start hitting it offline and you'll find it difficult.
Its easily the best course you've never heard of.
