Within a 30 kilometre radius, there are 3 world-class Landes golf courses. The Moliets golf course is on the list of the world’s 100 best golf courses (outside the USA), compiled by the prestigious Golf Digest. The Blue Green Seignosse and Golf d’Hossegor courses are often listed as among the best in Europe.

For decades, the natural landscape of the Landes has inspired architects to design high-quality, technical golf courses.


The oldest of these 3 courses is the one in Hossegor. A fairplay gcourse influenced by British designs, with a large variety of doglegs, it was created in 1930 by the English architect Tim Morisson. As it is sheltered from sea breezes thanks to the forest of pines, strawberry trees and cork oaks, it is an inland golf course. The golf course was a centrepiece of this new seaside resort, marketed as an: "Elegant Sports Resort". There are numerous photos of Suzanne Langlen, Lucien Gaudin and Georges Carpentier at the Hossegor golf course. Every year in July, Hossegor hosts the Grand Prix des Landes, an event which is listed amongst the top 4 French amateur competitions
eignosse is a legendary golf course which attracts some of the most demanding golfers. Situated in one of the most beautiful golfing areas in France, it is without a doubt an exceptional course. It is also well-regarded by some of the best international golfers. Designed by Robert Van Hagge, it is a course which has its own unique character, with winding, narrow fairways. The undulating landscape is full of water obstacles.
The Moliets golf course is the most recent of the three. It was created in the 80s by popular American course designer Robert Trent Jones. It is a straightforward course: easy to play but difficult to score, with wide fairways and greens which are well-protected by bunkers. There are 4 holes in links and a slightly hilly relief. This international, 27-hole golf complex soon earned a strong following among the world’s top players.
