Enjoy golf activities

Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished golfer, our license-free boat rentals allow you to join golf courses near to the waterways to practice your passion, with courses adapted to all.

From the Golf du Pays de Sarrebourg course which overlooks the Vosges mountains to the hilly Golf de Sarreguemines course via the Golf de Nancy course, a cruise on the Marne-Rhine Canal and the Saar Canal offers plenty of options for golfers.


Anjou is the perfect destination to combine canal boat hire and golf. Incredibly, you can access to the Sablé Solesmes golf course directly from the boat thanks to the pontoon laid out in the heart of the course. What better way to arrive at one of the most beautiful golf courses in the West of France?


You will find many golf courses along the Canal du Midi and the Canal de la Robine. Whatever the season, you can practice your sport at courses in Toulouse, Carcassonne, Cap d'Adge and Sainte-Rose de Narbonne.

What our clients say

"We moored directly on the banks of the Sablé Solesmes golf course and were able to start playing immediately, right by our boat! There was no need to check-in at the club house, the Nicols teams took care of everything for us."
