France's Rhone-Alps region is one of 33 regions in the country and the second most golf rich. Located in France's southeast, it's made up of the lowlands and river bed of the Rhone, as well as the French Alps, anchored by Grenoble, home to Robert Trent Jones Jr.'s Grenoble International Golf Club.
The golf varies from older clubs to new golf courses, though many were built during the boom of the 1980s. Located on the Rhone River, Lyon is France's second largest city and is a culinary and cultural center. The old town features Renaissance architecture dating back to the 14th century. Up into the hills, there are Roman forums and amphitheaters.
