Golf de la Grande Bastide

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1990

Golf de la Grande Bastide: This relatively open parkland layout is set in an attractive natural bowl, with wooded hills all around. Here you play under the watchful gaze of the village of Opio, and a tad further back Chateauneuf de Grasse. The delightful backdrop seems to constantly change, although the two charming villages remain in the picture much of the time.

The golf course is well maintained, the terrain is easy on the legs and the degree of golfing difficulty not too penal. Large stylish bunkers and occasional small ponds ensure your game is nicely tested, especially on approach shots into the not overly large greens.

A mix of cypresses, willows and many other tree varieties add to the undoubted pleasures of this attractive layout. Here in a blissfully picturesque Provencal setting you can take things easy and let the stresses of modern life melt away.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
