The third golf club in France, after Pau and Biarritz, was opened in Saint-Jean-de-Luz in 1892. Known as the Golf des Anglais, it began life as a 9-hole course before three more holes were added; this club existed until 1916.
The Chantaco golf course was created in 1928 by MrThion de la Chaume, the father-in-law of René Lacoste, one of the famous tennis "musketeers" of the time.
