I thought my holiday would be good but I was unprepared for how brilliant I would feel by the end of the week evening standard

golf  in megeve

golf megeve

Megeve is a classic Alpine course built on man made terraces that wind up the mountain side and back down again.

Despite its mountain location, the course is pretty flat, with gentle undulations.  So, it's not a test of your stamina just to get round.  It's a fun but not a great course.  However, situated at an altitude of 1,320m, you can expect your drives to be 10% to 15% longer than usual, courtesy of the thin mountain air.

It was during the 1920’s that the Baroness Maurice de Rothschild turned Megeve into a privileged holiday destination.  But it was her son, Baron Edmund de Rothschild, a golf enthusiast, who worked towards creating the Mont d’Arbois Golf Course in 1964, handing over the plans to the legendary Henry Cotton for him to complete.

Bizarrely, the course plays host each winter to the famous "Snowgolf" competition.  Yes, you read that correctly - golf on snow!  The fairways are pisted like a ski piste to make them hard and apparently the greens (or, perhaps, whites) are super smooth.

Golf in France

If you would rather play on first class Championship Golf Courses during a holiday to France, we would recommend the impressive Terre Blanche Golf & Spa Resort with two great courses (plus a David Leadbetter Golf Academy) or the more adult orientated Le Mas Candille with its superb Shiseido spa and easy access to several highly regarded golf courses in the neighbourhood.  Both of these hotel recommendations are in southern Provence, in striking distance of the Côte d’Azur.
