The 18 holes of Dieppe-Pourville Golf Club extend over 60 hectares, giving wonderful viewpoints looking out over the white cliffs of Pourville and Varengeville.
With a maximum length of 5,804 metres, it is situated on an undulating plateau with many trees and water hazards making it quite a challenging course.
Open all year round, with many competitions from March to October for members and guests.
This “golf course on which to practice the royal and ancient game” was created in 1897 at the instigation of English and Scottish golfers.
The architect chosen was simply the best of the time : Willie Park Jr. was the “golf architect” of the greatest courses, permanently attached to the Royal and Ancient in St Andrews, and he was given the challenge of creating the first nine holes along the cliffs.
On Thursday 22 April 1897, the Dieppe links were officially opened. From 1 June, to coincide with the opening of the casino, the first cliff-top golf competitions took place, with about 100 competitors, and in July, the first match between France and England began a long tradition of friendly rivalry.
Dieppe Golf Club had been launched: the eighth (nowadays seventh) oldest club in France.
