Le Tréport Terrasses Golf Club, Seine-Maritime (76). (1910 - WW1)

The club was founded in 1910 when Willie Park laid out an 18-hole course on the cliffs overlooking the sea. A funicular provided a service to the course. It closed at the onset of WW1.

With the declaration of war on 2nd August 1914 the Hotel provided accommodation and care for English officers throughout the war until 1919. The guns from the Somme front could be heard in Le Tréport. Two nearby English cemeteries with 2,585 graves give evidence of those who were unable to return home after convalescing.

In 1924 an attempt was made to reopen the course. A 9-hole course was laid out and play started again but only for a short period of time.

The golf course has given way to a residential area, extending from Le Tréport along the cliffs. The funicular railway was put back into service, linking the two levels of the town of Le Tréport; thus access to the port and beach was achievable in 3 minutes.

The Golf Hotel currently remains in the park, which had 6 tennis courts and a hockey pitch. In place of these games part of the park now hosts a camping and caravan park, Le Camping International du Golf.

Further evidence of the course can be found in road names, such as Rue du Golf, and maybe Avenue des Albatros.
