Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful Basque golf courses, it is a mixture of "links and in-land", particularly varied. From the green of 2, you will be at the seaside to end in the middle of a splendid pine forest.
It all started in 1924: the company "Biarritz Anglet la Forêt" became the owner of 150 hectares of forests and dunes to set up a golf course.
In 1927, the famous architect Tom Simpson posed his pencils facing the Atlantic for the pleasure of the Duke of Windsor, at the origin of this playful project.
In the architect''s contract, it is stipulated that Simpson was to create the most beautiful golf course in the world!
In 1940, CHIBERTA will be completely upset by the occupation, and it is in 1951 that Mr. Van DAELE takes over the estate and undertakes to renovate it.
In 1961, Mr. CHASSAGNY, charmed by the beauty of the site, assumed all sponsorship operations related to the social and sporting life of the club as well as the work necessary to make the course appreciated by all green again.
The creation, in 2002, of the 9-hole IMPERATRICE course provides a training tool for young people and offers a course for beginners, while being pleasant or even technically delicate for experienced players.
In recent years, a superb coastal promenade has isolated the links from the beach. The fairways of the seaside are, therefore, less subject to the invasion of sand during the winter.
On its sand bed, CHIBERTA is playable all year round, even after episodic showers which surprise the Basque Coast.
But beware of the wind, it could seriously weigh down your score card!
Ninety years after its creation, CHIBERTA still attracts as many players. You will love it, that''s for sure!
