The Le Mer ("Sea) course at Omaha Beach is one of the trickiest courses I've ever reviewed. Here's why: The front nine is wonderful with several holes overlooking the famous coastal cliffs of the Normandy coast and plenty of hills to make things interesting. The back nine is entirely ordinary. So do the virtues of the back nine mean this is a four-star course, or does the back nine drag it down to three-star status?

The answer comes in the form of a bunker hidden near the sixth green. Not a normal sand bunker, mind you, although there are plenty of them on this beautiful hole. I'm talking about a concrete bunker used by the Germans during the World War II. Now a memorial site with plaques and flags, it overlooks the village of Port en Bessin and the artificial harbor at Arromanches created on D-Day in 1944. The golf course staff doesn't always tell every visitor about it or encourage anyone to stop playing to explore it, but this is one historic spot worth breaking the rules to see. Walking through the underground bunker and taking pictures of the incredible clifftop view is worth a 15-minute detour. We let two groups play through to enjoy one of the most amazing discoveries I've ever experienced on a golf course. I'd recommend you do the same.

Each hole is named after a famous commander - Eisenhower, Churchill, etc. - from the war, so that adds to the feeling that you're playing somewhere unique.
