In November 1986 the local council of Saint Jean de la Rivière offers to make available an area of the dunes which it owns for the establishment of a golf course.

In February 1987 the Tourist Office of Barneville-Carteret, which in addition to its own town’s commune, covers Denneville, Port-Bail, Saint Georges de la Rivière, Saint Jean de la Rivière and Saint Lô d’Ourville, decides to lay out a 9-hole golf course on a piece of land of 20 hectares, situated opposite Jersey in the dunes of Saint Jean de la Rivère.

In April 1988 a driving range is opened to the public.

The official opening of the 9-hole golf course takes place in April 1990. The course is 2265 metres long and a par 33. Didier FRUCHET, the architect, and Henry TESSON, landscape gardner, are the project managers

The Sports Association of the Côte des Isles Golf Club, created in 1987, takes on the management and running of the facilities from the beginning.
From 40 members at the end of 1988 to nearly 350 today, the Côte des Isles Golf Club has continued to develop.

Under the leadership of the ‘Communauté des Communes » (the Confederation of communes) of the Côte des Isles area as project manager, the extension of the new 9 holes, the Mielles, is poened to players in August 2014.
Then follows the reconstruction of the original 9 holes, the Dunes, carried out under the project management of Robert BERTHET, the architect.


The Côte des Isles Golf Club is now an 18-hole course, offering you the interesting of the two distinct parts in succession: the 9 holes of the Mielles, which meanders between hedge-rows and beautiful stretches of water, with views of the villages of Saint Jean de la Rivière and of Saint Georges de la Rivière; and then the 9 holes of the Dunes, a wind-swept links course offering views over Jersey.

The new 18-hole ensemble was opened to the public on 26 June 2016.
