Biarritz: the Golfer’s Paradise

In the golfing world, Biarritz holds a special place.

Recognised as an outstanding international golf destination, the regions surrounding Biarritz – the Basque Country and the Landes – nestled between ocean and mountains, attract golfers from around the world. From Biarritz to Moliets, Saint-Jean-de-Luz to Pau, in the south of the South-West, 16 golf courses are less than an hour’s drive from Biarritz.

Biarritz has a long history with golfing – the Golf du Phare was created in 1888 and has always been a golf destination highly prized by enthusiasts of this sport. Moreover, the Pau Golf Club was the first course to have been designed in continental Europe in 1856.

Depending on one’s wishes, shape or level, a course can be chosen with sea or mountain view, in the heart of the city or among the pines, gently hilly or firmly athletic, historical or rural… but at all of them, quality, fresh vibes and diversity are the order of the day.


The golf courses of Chiberta, Seignosse, Hossegor, Moliets, Biarritz le Phare, Arcangues and Chantaco are ranked in the top 10 South-West golf courses by the 2016 edition of Fairways magazine.

The new “Golf Pass Biarritz Destination” lets one play two to eight courses at amazing prices.

The various workstations of the International Training Centre and Golf of Ilbarritz allow complete training according to one’s strengths or weaknesses..
