After the latest bad weather which was known as the beast from the east that hit the UK and Ireland it is said to stay particularly cold until the end of March but it is also the time of year many people book their summer holidays. This year a lot of people will want to catch some sun after what was the coldest winter in over 30 years. The beast from the east had effectively closed down the UK and Ireland for several days with snow reported to be 4 feet high in some places meaning that people were trapped in their homes. France got off a bit better than the rest of Europe and will prove to be a popular holiday destination as always with the Irish.
Irish Ferries run an over night ferry service to France on which you can also transport your car and this is a popular choice with many Irish holiday goers as it means you have your own transport and can drive down through France which is beautiful. Golf is a popular sport in Ireland and many people base their holidays around the lovely golf resorts in the south of France where you will get great weather, great golf courses and you will also be close to some beautiful beaches around the Biarritz area.
Many golfers will do a week in the south of France which can be quite affordable when compared to other holiday options in other parts of Europe and most definitely cheaper than taking a trip to the USA as well as having to put up with long flights and jet lag. Some of the courses can be quite challenging but there is various options depending on your golf skills. dekoproducts.co.uk sell a range of golf range finders which can be useful for some of the longer par 5 courses.
