Where2Golf says: 

Golf de Belle Dune: Together with Le Touquet, Hardelot and Wimereux, Belle Dune further reinforces the Côte d’Opale's excellent golfing credentials. Laid out by Jean-Manuel Rossi (who also designed the well-regarded Hulencourt course in Belgium), Belle Dune sits on the edge of an area of towering sand hills, close to but not directly alongside the English Channel (La Manche). The testing layout meanders through a mix of pine forest and open duneland, with plenty of undulation and elevation change along the way.

The opening and closing stretches of this predominantly sand-based links-style course are routed through a small pine forest. Here you will find tightish undulating fairways, several of them doglegging between the pines. The middle section of the course, from the par-4 8th through to the challenging double dogleg par-5 13th, is where links aficionados will feel most at home. This is where the holes are considerably more open and linksy than you'll find on the opening and closing sections. Throughout, Belle Dune's constant undulations are matched by some large and seriously undulating greens; getting down in two can never be taken for granted.

The abundance of wildlife in this predominantly natural setting is complemented from time to time by brightly painted rows of summer houses, which enhance rather than detract from this generally well maintained course. Full of testing challenges for mid and high handicappers, Belle Dune is definitely one of France's lesser known gems that's worth getting to know.
