Here is Peter Haslam’s opinion, independent expert of the famous magazine Golf World (April 1997):

“The best course of the Côte d’Azur region is probably Barbaroux, rightly classified 42nd in the Top 50 European courses by Golf World, but personally I would put it in a much better position.”
“Designed by the American architects Pete & P.B. Dye who have given their characteristic signature, notably the presence of wood beams retaining the lakes. The course unfolds in the var Mediterranean forest, beginning with a par 4 where the first difficulty is to decide how much of the lake you will cover, don’t be too greedy. The 3rd hole is an “adventure” needing a long iron or fairway wood to play a blind shot to the green far below, the 4th is difficult and interesting par 3 where you will pass through a tunnel under the green.”
“Barbaroux is one of the rare golf courses where every hole is ‘unforgettable’ and where the greens are fast and honest. If I was to spend the rest of my life playing the same French golf course, it would be Barbaroux.”

Extract from Golf Magazine (April 2002):

“Architectural brilliance, Barbaroux is a fabulous achievement and enhances Pete Dye’s reputation. What a course, Barbaroux is a monument to golf, particularly difficult, but as is often the case with a truly great course is that it is well designed, permitting players of all levels, from different tees, to fully enjoy this splendid course….”

The natural practice area, giving you the opportunity to play off grass, and the different installations give every player the possibility to improve in close proximity of the course. The Proshop offers you the latest articles available from the golf world: balls, clubs, shoes, and clothing from the leading brands.
You can also enjoy the restaurant in the club house and the Barbaroux golf hotel, comprising 24 comfortable rooms with independent terrace, swimming pool and tennis court.

Finally, Barbaroux has a lot to offer for the golfer and non-golfer in the surrounding area, vast selection of sites of interest and natural beauty, such as the ‘Iles de Porquerolles’ and ‘Port-Cros’, or the lifestyle of St Tropez, or the ambience of the typical provencal villages and the surrounding vineyards with their impressive castle.
