Anjou Golf & Country Club is situated in the heart of historic Anjou, an area once ruled by the powerful Plantagenet dynasty. It is a 25 minutes drive north of the city of Angers. The course, one of several in France built by the British architect Frederick Hawtree, extends across 100 hectacres punctuated by century-old oak trees and water obstacles.
Hawtree was commissioned by Roland de la Poype (1920 – 2012) to develop the course from farmland. The entrepreneur and former WW11 flying ace was part of the French-Russian Normandie-Niemen squadron and widely known in France as the founder of Marineland in Antibes and for conceiving the Citroën Méhari car. Today, Anjou Golf & Country Club is recognized as one of the best international courses in the region.
