Where2Golf says: 

Golf de Biarritz "Le Phare" is the third oldest golf club in France and home to continental Europe's third oldest course. Laid out on an easy-walking and gently undulating plateau behind the Biarritz lighthouse (Phare de Biarritz), this generally well-regarded course includes several attractive holes and features.

The tree-lined and open parkland layout will test most facets of your game, providing a round with plenty of enjoyable golfing challenges. Most of the course exudes a classically parkland feel, while some stretches, complete with wonderful ocean views, give a more seasidey feel, although not quite in the style of duneland links.

Did you know?

Founded in 1888, Biarritz has the distinction of being the third oldest golf club (and golf course) in continental Europe. The two oldest clubs are also to be found in France: Pau (1856) and Dinard (1887). Royal Antwerp in Belgium also dates back to 1888, but moved its course to a new location in 1912.

With a largely British membership, Biarritz-Le Phare was opened on March 13, 1888 by Princess Frédérika of Hanover. The club's sports facilities included the 18-hole “Le Phare” course, a 9-hole ladies course, a croquet court, cricket pitch, several tennis courts and clay pigeon shooting.
