Golf du Claux Amic

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1992

Golf du Claux Amic: High in the hills above Grasse (the ancient perfume capital of the world), lies this relatively new and pleasantly challenging golf course. Laid out in former hunting grounds on a wooded hillside, the course is hilly in parts, although not too onerous to walk.

The quiet and naturally tree-lined holes present some intimidating drives, although on many occasions there is a tad more room out there than you at first think. With no roads or housing to disturb, you can apply your full concentration to nailing those tightish drives.

A spectacular view looking down to faraway Cannes and out onto the Mediterranean opens up at the par-4 12th green. This wonderful vista comes as a welcome change from the ever-present, though always attractive woodland scenery.

There is not much water to worry about as you journey round, although a small pond needs to be crossed in front of the par-3 13th green. Maintenance standards are generally good, but one is left wondering why the excellent chateau no longer functions as a boutique hotel. It does however provide a large and sumptuous clubhouse.

Overall Claux Amic is a challenging woodland course and very well worth a visit. many visitors combine it with the even grander Chateau de Taulane, which is located a bit further along the D6085 from Grasse.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
