With great golf courses, fine wines, Michelin-starred dining and the beautiful city of Strasbourg, the French region of Alsace is the perfect place for an idyllic golf vacation.
Between the Rhine Valley and the Vosges mountains and the German and Swiss borders, Alsace is home to around a dozen courses, gorgeous countryside, an array of cultural and historic attractions.
The region has more Michelin star restaurants than anywhere in France, as well as world-class wine produced from its many vineyards. The medieval castles, pretty towns and villages with their distinctive architecture create almost a fairy tale ambiance, while Strasbourg is a vibrant city with picture-book timber-framed buildings and alleyways, a magnificent red sandstone Gothic cathedral, superb museums and a buzzing bar scene.
Les Haras – Located close to the centre of Strasbourg on the edge of the historic Petite France quarter, this 4-star hotel occupies the former national stud farm of Strasbourg, dating back to the 18th century. It’s been recently renovated and is home to the Nuxe Spa, while the site is shared by La Brasserie Les Haras, run by Michelin three-star chef Marc Haeberlin.
A great location for golfers, it’s less than 20 minutes from Strasbourg Golf Club and Golf Du Fort, a great 9-hole course and driving range approved by the French Golf Federation, and Le Kempferhof Golf Club, just 15km south.
Le Kempferhof Golf Club – One of the best golf courses in France, just a short drive from the centre of Strasbourg. Designed by Robert Von Hagge, it’s set in woodland with sloping topography and perfectly manicured fairways and raised greens. Lying along the banks of the Rhine, there’s 13 water hazards, deep bunkering and gorgeous views.
Goelia Le Domaine du Golf – Located in the heart of Alsace, around 60km from Strasbourg in the charming wine village of Ammerschwihr. It’s also close to the village centre and the nearest shops and right at the start of many hiking trails.
The resident 18-hole Ammerschwihr golf course is set amongst vineyards and forests and is a fine introduction to golf in Alsace with its hilly, pretty layout and superb countryside views. There are 72 3-star affordable apartments spread over three or four levels of residential houses, complete with private bathrooms and a kitchenette. There’s also a heated indoor swimming pool and sauna.
Golf International Soufflenheim Baden-Baden – Designed by Bernard Langer in the mid-90s, this is a superb golf complex with 33 holes and 18 lakes located in 140 hectares of natural countryside around 25 minutes from Strasbourg.
A round here on the championship course is a memorable nature-based experience, and there’s 9-hole and 6-hole courses for beginners to learn the game. On-site there’s a tastefully decorated apartment and a presidential suite to stay in and enjoy the area, and you get 50% discount on the green fee if you do.
Strasbourg Golf Club – Created in 1935, the Golf Club de Strasbourg, 15 minutes south of Strasbourg, is the region’s oldest club. Today there’s 27 holes of pure parkland golf with tree-lined fairways and plenty of water. You can play three different 9-hole routes of the course and there’s a large driving range and four practice holes. The course is quite tight with well-placed bunkers, trees and the variation in routes offers a great golfing day out.
Golf de La Wantzenau – 10 kilometers from Strasbourg, Golf de La Wantzenau is situated in a region bordered by forests, near the Rhine River. The course, designed by English architect Jeremy Pern, is an highly manicured 18-hole layout with plenty of water and spectacular panoramic views across Alsace. As well as the main course, there’s a smaller course, covered driving ranges and putting greens, all open to the public. The typical Alsace architecture of the clubhouse is complimented by a lovely restaurant and a pro-shop.

It’s slightly hilly, has five tees per hole and is playable all year round. The multiples water hazards and deep bunkers guarantee a wide variety of play and the open terrain allows golfers to go for their shots.
