‘Oh La La’ France Golf Tour

29 SEPTEMBER – 14 OCTOBER 2018

16 Days – 7 Rounds

Come Early and take time to experience the Ryder Cup in Person

Fully escorted, this tour spectacularly delivers the magic and romance of Paris. Here you’ll be amongst the first to play Le Golf National, still echoing with the drama and excitement of hosting the 2018 Ryder Cup. Then it is onto Provence in the South of France where you’ll feel like you’ve just stepped into an impressionist canvas with its fields of lavender, ancient olive groves, cliff-top roads and maquis-cloaked hills. And amongst those, you’ll find yourself playing your favourite game: golf!

France will seduce you with its unfalteringly familiar culture, woven around cafe terraces, village-square markets and lace-curtained bistros with their plat du jour chalked on the board. In Paris, you’ll find yourself standing in front of iconic landmarks – The Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the glamourous Champs Elysées, and the gargoyled Notre Dame cathedral to name a few.

Paris is iconic while the South of France is sexy, sun-kissed and irresistibly seductive. It is filled with lavender fields, Roman ruins, sleepy villages and countless bucolic vistas.

Non-golfing partners are well looked after and will revel in immersing themselves in the local culture and attractions. Please book early to avoid disappointment as this tour will sell out quickly!

This fully escorted 16-day tour sees you play 7 rounds of golf in gorgeous settings. Being the first to play Le Golf National straight after it hosts the 2018 Ryder Cup will be a highlight. We also have tempting packages for you to arrive early and experience all of the Ryder Cup action live. Be quick, all packages are subject to availability. Allez!
