Abbadia Golf Club, Hendaye, Pyrénées-Atlantiques (64). 

In 1910 an 18-hole golf course was created which profoundly transformed the site. The course was located in stunning surroundings in the vicinity of the Château d'Abbadia. The club continued until the outbreak of WW2.

The clubhouse was installed in the 1920s

During the second World War, the Atlantic Wall (a coastal defence system and fortifications built by the Nazis) changed the landscape, notably by the felling of trees on Point Sainte-Anne and the construction of concrete bunkers.

Following WW2 the land returned to agriculture. Attempts were made to destroy the blockhouses but the efforts were unsuccessful. Nowadays the concrete remains are hidden by groves.

Just to add, the club continued to be listed in the Golfer’s Handbook into the early 1960s bit it’s more likely that the club ceased to exist following the war.
