North East France

Map of North East France

About

We’ve grouped the regions of Île-de-France (Paris), Picardy, Nord-Pas de Calais, Champagne, Burgundy, Franche-Comté and Alsace-Lorraine to create the North East area of France.

There are more golf courses in the region of Île-de-France than any other area in the country and the quality around the capital, Paris, is exemplary. Morfontaine, Chantilly and Fontainebleau head the classical list but the Albatros course at Golf National, host to the 2018 Ryder Cup matches, is a course that will become the French equivalent of England’s The Belfry.

To the south of Strasbourg in the Alsace Region, near the border of Germany, you’ll find the Kempferhof Golf Club, a tough, modern Robert von Hagge design that will test the very best golfers.

The Nord-Pas de Calais Region is where the Channel Tunnel rail link emerges from Folkestone in England and this is from where many thousands of British golfers head out in search of French fairways. The vast majority of golfing Brits end up at Hardelot, Le Touquet and the much-underrated Belle-Dune before heading back home via the Tunnel.
