Located in Billère near Pau in the Pyrenees-Atlantiques, The Pau Golf Club 1856, 3rd Golf Stars, the first golf course built in France has this soul supplement linked to the enviable and specific character of the oldest golf course in continental Europe! 16th golf course built in the world at that time.

Created on 9 holes by British settlers in 1856 near the River Gave, the town hall of Pau asked the Scottish architect William Dunn Sr as early as 1860 to make an 18-hole one and install the current clubhouse. Play in the footsteps of Joe Lloyd, the British pro winner of the US Open1897.

In 1960, it unfed a complete renovation to improve its 18 holes by 5314 meters, by 69.

Flat course, with the Pyrenees as a setting, which is aimed at all golfers regardless of their level. The large clubhouse, in Victorian style built in 1880, is a veritable museum with a historical heritage comprising more than 150 paintings, trophies, medals... listed on the Supplementary List of Historic Monuments. A warm atmosphere in a setting that has preserved its English character, nothing like to relax and eat!

A golfer's menu is available for lunch. Don't hesitate to extend the charm of this day by taking advantage of the proximity to Pau to discover this superb city including its amazing funicular commissioned in 1908. It leads to the Boulevard des Pyrénées towards the castle, birthplace of Henry IV King of France and Navarre, where there is now a superb collection of tapestries from the 17th and 18th centuries; one of the highlights of the art of tapestry and its history.

Since 2015, the tradition of black-bowling a member candidate application (literally one vote against, only one black ball) has been abolished!
