Le Touquet Golf Resort looks to widen international appeal by joining European Tour Destinations

By Emily Kay 2 years ago

Le Touquet Golf Resort, home of France’s #1 links course and a member of Resonance Golf Collection, has become the latest venue to join the European Tour Destinations network.

Following a multi-million euro transformation in recent years, Le Touquet Golf Resort and its three courses are ushering in a new golden age of European golf travel, featuring contemporary comforts and a boutique style hotel.

A century after Le Touquet was Europe’s most fashionable resort in the ‘Roaring Twenties’, the chic French hospitality and sandy beaches are once again set to become the envy of golfers worldwide. 

“We are a very well-known and established golf resort in Northern France, especially among British and Belgian golfers,” said Charles Debruyne, Golf Club Manager at Le Touquet Golf Resort. “Our ambition is to build on this and attract an increasingly more international clientele.”

Laurent Boissonnas, Managing Director of Resonance Golf Collection, commented: “European Tour Destinations is a stamp of tournament quality and we believe being part of the network will help create a step-change in our business, allowing us to tap into industry best practices, a wealth and breadth of expert knowledge, as well as the opportunity to learn from like-minded individuals.”

“It’s an exciting time for golf tourism and the industry as a whole,” added Ian Knox, Head of Operations at European Tour Destinations. “It’s only fitting a venue of the calibre of Le Touquet Golf Resort is poised to take advantage of the global travel industry’s rebound, and we’re looking forward to working closely with them on attracting a more international clientele.”

Only an hour’s drive from the Eurotunnel’s Calais Terminus along the A16, Le Touquet Golf Resort is an easily accessible destination for golfers from the UK, Belgium and The Netherlands, as well as international visitors flying into Paris with Charles de Gaulle Airport two hours away. 

With its critically-acclaimed La Mer course receiving industry-wide praise for its recent restoration – which included the recovery of four Harry Colt and Charles ‘Hugh’ Alison original holes lost to the dunes during World War II that earned it a #22 spot on the influential Golf World Top 100 Golf Courses of Continental Europe ranking in 2021 – Le Touquet Golf Resort provides 45 holes of outstanding golf surrounded by a natural landscape of sand dunes, pine forests and big skies. 

Its transformation has also included the building of a stunning contemporary clubhouse, designed taking inspiration from the vast beaches and dunes which characterise France’s north-eastern coast, and the complete refurbishment of Le Manoir Hôtel into a modern boutique establishment with 41 individually styled rooms, suites and bungalows.
