Golf around the gastronomy capital of France

Capital of French gastronomy, the Rhône is also a place of history and traditions. Lyon and its wonderful architectural heritage, Saint-Romain-en-Gal and its Gallo-Roman remains, the Pays Beaujolais region and its charming gold-coloured villages, unspoiled nature of the Lyonnais mounts, as well as renowned vineyards make the Rhône a great destination.

An immersion into French cuisine with a mix of culture, lifestyle and history plus excellent courses to play.
