Course Insights

Golf de Biarritz Le Phare is considered a gentle course that is easy to walk around, however the club members say,

“It looks like being an easy course, which does not require any important physical efforts, but it’s really not. Its difficulty lies in his technicality and it is not that easy to « score ». 70 bunkers are there to remind us, if necessary is, that golf is, above all, a reflection and shrewdness affair.”
