Makila Golf Club is ideal holiday golf in an area packed with some very challenging golf courses. After a few rounds on the tighter courses around Biarritz, you might want to play a golf game on a course where you can take your driver out of the bag . Makila will tick this box but it’s no pushover.

There are plenty of bunkers and a few water hazards so you can’t just blast away but Makila does reward good driving. The views on some of the holes are sensational.

A good modern course and a nice contrast to the classics near the coast.
