This short piece is about my trip to the Champagne region in France.
I was kindly invited to attend a trip to France by Golfy, the European green fee discount card. When I found out it was to the Champagne region it was a definite must go for me.
Day one we played golf at Golf de l’Ailette. We were greeted at the entrance to the clubhouse with a glass of Champagne so you know it was going to be a good trip but the golf might suffer.
After Lunch we played the course. The course had some beautiful holes which shaped their way around the man made lake of which provided some spectacular views.
After Golf we had dinner at the Hotel Du Golf de l’Ailette and of course more Champagne. It must be said the hospitality was second to none.
We traveled to Reims and played golf at Gold De Reims – Champagne. The clubhouse reminded me of something out of the second world war. A historical looking building which i believed hosted the Americans just after the war.
The course again had some beautiful holes cut out of the mature trees.
My golf was a little rusty but definitely improved, and has made me want to get the clubs out more for sure.
On the night we had a private meal at Champagne Jacquart, a wonderful building and superb Champagne. We tasted 5 different versions of their Champagne and all were lovely, but I preferred the standard bottle to the vintage.
Our hosts Golfy supported by Landmark Media were fantastic.
If you every go or are planning a trip to France or the countries that Golfy operate in It will be well worth getting a golf discount card. IT WILL PAY FOR ITSELF.
