Olivier Bréaud International Golf (aka Atimaono Tahiti)

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1968

Although named Golf International Olivier Bréaud, local Tahitians often refer to this course as Golf d'Atimaono. Created in the 1970s from a former cotton and sugar cane plantation, "Atimaono" is located on the south side of Tahiti. It occupies part of the largest area of flat land on the volcanic island, straddling between the lush jungle-clad mountains and the island's beautiful reef-lined lagoon.

This parkland layout doesn't quite get down to the seashore, but does offer occasional glimpses of the Pacific Ocean through the trees. The neatly but never densely tree-lined holes are laid out in a relatively open area of rich tropical and colourful vegetation, included amongst which are breadfruit trees, lemon, grapefruit, letchees and avocado. Without much bunkering along the fairways and typically two smallish bunkers defending the greens, this is a layout for beginners to enjoy and low handicappers to score well on.

Home to the Tahiti International Open (a PGA of Australasia Pro-Am series event) the layout boasts as challenging a set of par-3s as you'll find, with the shortest measuring 196 yards from the back tees.

Did you know?

Tahiti's only 18-hole golf course was the inspiration of wealthy Frenchman Jean Breaud, who wanted a place to play golf with his friends. He certainly had no commercial objective in building the course. He renamed the course in honour of his son, Olivier Breaud, who was kidnapped and murdered in the early 1980s (one of the few serious crimes committed in Tahiti).

Olivier Breaud is built on the site of what was once a cotton plantation. The plantation was a key source of cotton for European markets when the Civil War in the United States severely disrupted supplies from the American South. A rum factory was also operated on the Atimaono site at one time.

Tournaments:
European Tour: 2021 marks the 50th and last season of the world renowned European Tour, launched in April 1972 at the Spanish Open. From 2022 the Tour will be sponsored by Dubai-based global supply chain and ports operator DP World, and will be known as the DP World Tour.

South African Open: December 2021 events in South Africa have again been impacted by the Covid pandemic. The South African Open (Dec 2-5) will no longer be played as a DP World Tour event, and the Alfred Dunhill Championship (Dec 9-12) has been cancelled.

Who's Who:
Bernhard Langer: at age 64, Langer collected a record sixth Charles Schwab Cup, the only player to have won the season-long points chase more than twice. He also topped the PGA Tour Champions money-list for the 11th time out of a possible 13 since 2008.

Carlota Ciganda: the five-time Solheim Cup star was delighted to record a fourth Ladies European Tour win in her home national championship, the Ladies Spanish Open.

Lee Elder: Trailblazer, Ryder Cup player, four-time PGA Tour winner and eight-time Senior PGA Tour winner, Lee Elder died on November 28, aged 87. In 1975 he became the first African American golfer to play in the Masters tournament, and in so doing provided one of the pivotal moments in the history of professional golf.
