New Golf Barriere de Deauville: The 18-holes you'll most likely play here combines Tom Simpson's nine-hole Rouge course, and Henry Cotton's nine-hole Blanc course; the additional nine-hole Bleu course is also designed by Cotton. The three courses fit well together, with good width fairways, fearsome greenside bunkering, no water and lightly tree-lined fairways giving a reasonably open feel.
From the Blanc course, usually played as the back-nine of the 18, there are stunning views down into Deauville, the horse racing track, casino and away across La Manche (though you'll not see England - just lots of Anglais on the course). There is also a strange one-wall ruin to marvel at on the Blanc course. The greens here are generally quick, and when the overall maintenance is on song, this is a parkland delight.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
