Where2Golf says: 

Golf de Montpellier Massane: This pleasant parkland course plays through two contrasting environments, creating rather different golfing experiences. Laid out on relatively flat terrain by Ron Fream, the opening stretch of holes are lined by holiday homes. Staying out of back gardens, swimming pools and frequent "on course" water hazards is a key demand, especially for seriously wayward hitters.

Things start changing at the 4th hole and by the time you get to the back-nine the houses have been replaced by pleasant rural countryside. Most of the course enjoys this more open and inviting feel, albeit without too much in the way of elevation change and undulations. Small mounds and good bunkering are used to break up the flatness of the layout, complemented by several dangerous water hazards. A small river (La Cadoule) creates a formidable hazard at the 8th, 9th and 18th holes.

Like nearby Montpellier Fontcaude and La Grand Motte, Montpellier Massane is a pleasant course to play. However, tougher tests await in the South of France as you head east into the Cote d'Azur.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
