Normandy Hits The Top Ten
Normandy has been voted one of the top ten established golf destinations
by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators.
The 95 tour operators in 21 different countries were asked to give a “satisfaction
rating” for each of the destinations they featured, ranging from
the quality of the golf courses to the promotional support received
from the tourist boards.
Normandy was the only French region to score among the top ten, half of
which were in the United States. The overall winner will be announced
in December during the International Golf Travel Market in Jacksonville,
There are 37 golf courses in Normandy, many within minutes of the ferry
ports at Cherbourg, Caen, Le Havre and Dieppe. The recently completed
motorway network puts Normandy just one hour’s drive from the Channel
Tunnel and the region is becoming increasingly popular with British
golfers taking short-break holidays.
