Golf d'Hardelot (Les Dunes course): As the more recent of the two Hardelot courses, Les Dunes does not quite have the cachet or style of Tom Simpson's Les Pins layout (located just a kilometre away). At just over 5,800 yards from the tips, and with six not overly long par-3s, you may be forgiven for thinking Les Dunes will not thoroughly examine your game. But there you'd be wrong. This often hilly and (at times) tightly tree-lined course will most assuredly test all aspects of your game.
The uphill par-4 opening hole provides a good example of what lies ahead on Les Dunes. Like many holes, it contains considerable elevation change, deep crinkly-edged bunkering and a testing approach to an elevated two-tier green. Driving accuracy is one of the essentials to good scoring here. So too the ability to weigh-up the elevation changes, and execute an adept short game should you miss the greens.
The quiet setting amongst mature pine trees, and a generally good level of greenkeeping ensures the popularity of Les Dunes with visiting golfers. Although many houses are seen immediately beyond the course boundary, they rarely detract from this ever-undulating and attractive layout. If the course had been built closer to modern-day championship length, it would certainly pose a bigger challenge to Les Pins for top honours in Hardelot.
