Afternoon : 18 holes golf at BIARRITZ LE PHARE
Located at the heart of the town, in a prestigious environment, Biarritz « Le Phare » Golf club is near the ocean and enjoys a most temperate climate all year round, mild in winter, rarely too hot in the summer. One should not rely on the easy aspect of the course which is not very physically demanding. The difficulties are of a more technical nature and it is not so easy to score well. A total of 70 bunkers remind if need be, that the game of golf is above all a matter for reflection and judgment.
