Pays basque – Béarn – Bigorre - 15 Golfs d'avant-guerre
The South West of France is ‘golf country’. Guy Lalanne gives us a precise and well researched history.
Pau (1856) and Biarritz (1881) are widely described in this book, as are all the others, such as Chantaco, Chiberta and La Nivelle. Defunct golf courses are also mentioned, such as ‘Le golf des Anglais’ at Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Argelès Gazost, Gavarnie, Hendaye etc.
To show just how much attention the author paid to this research, he included two lesser known small golf courses, Iduskian (1924) and Mendichka (1930).
For those interested in the history of golf in France this book is a ‘must read’.
