“Beautiful views but terrible course condition”

“Beautiful views but terrible course condition”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

I have been playing this course for several years and whilst the views are stunning, the course has severely deteriorated over the last two/three years. There is a major issue with the local sanglier (wild boar) who are destroying the fairways and the course keepers do not seem to care. The greens are OK but the bunkers are like concrete which is surprising considering the amount of sand piled up in the car park. The fees remain high regardless and it seems anyone can play the course - no handicap required which is OK but this means golf etiquette is low. Overall, expect a nice view but ground under repair barely covers the terrible condition of most of the course.

Sand and pebble beaches, nice seaside restaurants. Can be lucky and find some wild beaches... There are lots of free parking spaces till 10am.

“Lovely promenade”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Not to big, but with restaurants and bars. Shops close around 11 pm. Take the bateau vert -ligne at St. Tropez and perhaps also to Port Grimaud. You only pay 14 euro pp.

“Always an enjoyable round of golf in a beautiful setting but.....”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

I have been playing this course for many years and whilst the position remains superb with wonderful far reaching views and the course is not too challenging to take away any enjoyment I have one major complaint. Euros 90 is not too much to pay for a perfect course but in this instance all 18 tees were a disgrace and I find it hard to imagine any course whose green keeper would tolerate such poor tees! As we were joined in our round by a charming local French man I asked him his views and he was in complete agreement.

“Golfcourse with fantastic view of the bay from several holes”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

You can enjoy a nice round of golf on this hilly course. It is a medium difficult 18-holes course, and you need to have a trolley.
Book well in advance, in the season very busy.
