Review:

We loved this course. Certainly a hilly course and a good walk - but it is a walking course. From the white tees it is 6053 meters but there are further back tees not on the score card and the pro shop did not have the full Barbaroux Golf Course - Photo by reviewer distance from these back ´black' tees but must add approx 150m to the course.

Some of the Pete Dye railway sleepers need some TLC. For example the 11th is a short par 4 with water carry from the tee with water down the entire right side of fairway to green - sleepers supporting the bank of the fairway have collapsed into the water and odd posts in the water are now for birds , while the fairway is slowly collapsing near the bank. We note the comments previously on the 3rd and 4th holes. The 3rd is a short downhill par 5 which from the plateau of the fairway the hole drops away dramatically to the green below - an iron to the green which is reachable in 2. The 4th is a beautiful up hill par 3 139m , plays 1-2 clubs more , with a quirky tunnel to the right of the hole for buggies to drive through. We enjoyed the originality of these holes and did not find issue in the design. Get out of position and the score will mount .

No two holes on this course are similar and with a typical 'mistral' wind this is a tough course.
