Golf Saint Omer
Designed to encapsulate the surrounding parkland and regarded as one of the top courses in Northern France, the par 73 AA St Omer has become a regular feature on the European Golf Tour. This 6,218 yard parkland course has been widely praised for its flawless conditioning, and is an unmissable course to play on your next golfing holiday.
Conveniently located just 30 minutes away from Calais, the Golf Saint Omer consists of two separate courses; the 18 hole De Val course and the 9 hole La Haute Drève academy course. The Le Val course poses as a challenge to even the most skilled player, whereas the La Haute Drève academy course is perfect for amateurs and high-handicappers to fine tune their game. There is something for every golfer at the Golf Saint Omer.
These naturally beautiful courses are immaculately maintained throughout the year and the curves of the hillside will see that keen golfers are suitably challenged. Undulating greens and a testing finishing hole on the De Val course have enhanced the already growing reputation of this attractive course. Due to its hilly terrain, careful club choice is imperative to score well on this course.

The front nine holes on this course truly test its player’s limits, and demands their full attention when throwing dramatic sweeping holes at them. However the back nine holes certainly create a contrast to the first nine; these holes are home to more dense greenery and woodland, therefore extreme precision is also required combined with skill. To intensify the challenge this course poses, water hazards are strategically dotted across the course. It would be untrue to say that this course is not demanding; golfers should arrive prepared for a testing yet unforgettable round of golf.
Length of holes on this course differ massively, however the most memorable hole is widely considered to be the final 18th hole. Your success on this 5,401 metre hole is purely reliant on your skill set, yet difficulty in playing the 14th hole prepares the player nicely. At this hole, greenery certainly comes into play with a large tree placed in the centre of the fairway. It is heavily advised to remain cautious when tackling this hole, however well-placed shots are definitely rewarded.
Players are invited to treat themselves to a delectable lunch after a taxing yet unforgettable round of golf at the clubhouse restaurant, Ristandel. Here players can enjoy a well-earned beer on the sunny terrace, and overlook the breath-taking views of this fabulous course.
