A Couple of Notes From Our Golf Vacation in France

When it comes to tourism, France is the world's most popular destination. From Paris to Provence... from the sparkling shores of the French Riviera to the snow-capped slopes of the French Alps... tourists come to France from around the globe for the iconic art and architecture of its cities and the striking natural beauty of the French countryside.

Golf however, is not something travelers often associate with France. Despite its 700 golf courses... 22 of them ranked among the Worlds Top 1000 ... golf tourism in France is not yet a major thing. Spain, Portugal and the UK are far more popular with golf travelers at this point, but as France prepares to host the 2018 Ryder Cup there are myriad efforts underway to highlight the many exciting golf travel possibilities in France. Whether it's attending a professional golf tournament, playing in an amateur golf event or enjoying the pleasures of one of the country's sublime golf resorts, the possibilities are endless... and enchanting.

We're into the second week of our French vacation and enjoying every awesome minute.  The Alstom Open de France which took place during a warm, sunny week at Golf National, was stellar. We're now spending time in the French Alps and looking forward to a twilight round this afternoon at Evian Resort.  Next week we hope to play a few rounds at other courses in the area.  We'll be posting more detailed chronicles in the coming days.  Meanwhile watch for our social media dispatches. A bientot.
