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 British architect Frederick Hawtree was commissioned by Roland de la Poype (1920 – 2012) to develop the course from farmland with work beginning in the late 1980s. La Poype, an entrepreneur and former WW11 flying ace was part of the French-Russian Normandie-Niemen squadron and widely known in France for developping Marineland in Antibes and the Citroën Méhari car. Today, Anjou Golf & Country Club is recognized as one of the best international courses in the region. Facilities include a 6 hole compact course, a covered driving range, a clubhouse open to everyone, 18 bedrooms with bathrooms and three self-catering studios.
