France have near 600 courses (more than in the rest of continental Europe put together) for only 300 000 golfers (for 400 golf courses and 2 millions golfers in Southern California for instance), a miraculous state of under-used which means:

* Tee times in France are not packaged eight minutes apart from sunrise to sunset and there are selection-rights when it comes to preferred tee times
* Two-balls visitors have not to consolidate to make a four-balls and do not spend five hours for one round
* There is plenty of space in front of you and behind you while playing golf in France and marshals are noticeably missing from the golf course scene
* These tee time availability and speed of play allow you to easily combine golf with sightseeing or any other activity of your preference
* Exclusive golf courses are more accessible than those of comparable quality anywhere else
* Do you like to use a buggie, just do it ;would you prefer exercise, feel free to walk on the golf course 
In a French golf club, you are not considered as a visitor but as a member for the day.
After eighteen holes in the morning, you will have the opportunity to play a free extra round in the afternoon on most of the French golf courses. 

   Some of the most famous architects have designed the French golf courses (Both Robert Trent Jones Snr&Jnr, Robert Von Hagge, Pete Dye, Ronald Fream, Tom Simpson, Peter Alliss, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus…).
The rich variety of the landscape in France makes that no two golf courses are alike.
All types of courses are proposed: links, clifftop, sandhills, parkland, wooded, mountain ranges, American style, challenging, friendly, traditional, resort courses…
Four French golf courses are amid the Continental Europe top ten in the 2000 Golf Magazine 's best Golf Courses Ranking.
   French motorists drive on the right side of the road, unlike their UK neighbours. In France, the well-maintained road network and very good motorway system get you to drive just like you are driving along Interstate #80.
TGV and regional airports give you an easy access to any part of France.
Distances between golf courses and hotels are short (average 30 mn). A lot of chateaux hotels and resorts have their own golf course on site.
   France is probably the best golf destination for… non golfers!
Loire Valley Castles, gothic cathedrals, Roman abbeys, museums, music festivals, wine tasting, cooking class, antiques, small village markets, shopping, barge cruises, and more will fill each of your days spent in France, while your companion is battling on the course .
   French gastronomy has to honour its worldwide reputation.
The French idea of a golf day is a gastronomic scramble with different vintages and bonnes bouches to offer at the back of every green.
Weight-loss books are not best-sellers in the land of foie gras, canard and truffle dishes.
And cheese, what a real thing! Cheeses in France are not required to be pasteurised, which means that cheeses are a national treasure for visitors to their country.
There are good reasons for avoirdupois to be a French word
   Tourism is one of the most important French industry (first destination in the world with more than 70 million visitors each year) which consequently provide a high level of professionalism in the way of welcoming foreign tourists
   The temperate climate in France allows to play golf all year round. Provence, French Riviera or Pays Basque (Biarritz) for example have no idea of what a winter green looks like.
   Slice is a slice, green is a green, divot is a divot, birdie is a birdie…French golf resists all attempts by Academie Française to supplant them with escalopes or oiselets
All the people in the French golf clubs speak english
As far as you know how to say bonjour (good day), au revoir (good bye), merci (thanks), French people are friendly, welcoming and helpful.
   Golf is an old story in France. The first course has been built in 1856.
Even more, the first French player to win the British Open was Arnaud Massy in 1907.
The first…but unfortunately the last!
