Pont Royal Golf Club opened for play in 1992 and it’s the only golf course in France designed by Seve Ballesteros. Located in the foothills of the Alps in the Provence region, it will come as no surprise that Pont Royal represents a rather hilly golfing challenge.

With holes that regularly plunge and soar across a forested landscape against the backdrop of the Luberon and Alpilles mountain ranges, Pont Royal is a real thinking person’s course. Full concentration and technical shot-making skills will be required from start to finish as golfers plot their way round a layout that has more than its fair share of dramatic golf holes.

Holes, for instance, like the 462-yard par four 7th, which sweeps down then up to the left on a thrilling rollercoaster fairway, or the 205-yard par three 11th, requiring an all-or-nothing tee shot from an elevated tee across a wooded gorge to a distant green perched on top of a rocky outcrop.

What price would a TV producer pay nowadays to film a young Seve in his prime playing such tough holes in his own unique cavalier style? Maybe another swashbuckling golfer will emerge victorious when the European Challenge Tour visits Pont Royal for the first time in September 2018?

A quality golf course. A real test for all golfers with slope ratings of over 150!!! The course is in great condition and in my opinion is the best available in Provence. The club is currently in the process of building a new driving range and 6 practise holes, where a David Leadbetter school of golf will be situated.Definately worth a visit.
