The Montpellier Massane Resort course gets off to a rather inauspicious start with residential units situated on either side of the first six holes but it then opens out, allowing golfers to savour a more open, rural setting for the remainder of the round.
The course at Golf Hôtel Grenoble Charmeil is set on the floodplain of the River Isere so – as might be expected on such flat terrain – natural water hazards play a prominent part in proceedings as the round progresses on this entertaining layout.
Established in 1895, the original 9-hole Old Course at Golf & Tennis Club de Valescure was extended to 18 holes by Harry Colt in 1910. Today, measuring just over 5,000 meters from the medal tees, this delightful tree-lined layout remains much as it was over 100 years ago.
Lying in the shadow of Mont Blanc, the original 9-hole layout at Golf Club de Chamonix was inaugurated in 1935. It then took almost half a century before Robert Trent Jones finally expanded the course to an 18-hole track in the early 1980s.

A late 1980s design from Sprecher and Watine, the course at Golf de Servanes sits at the foot of the Alpilles Mountains, close to Les Baux de Provence, where the fairways are beautifully bounded by olive groves and cypress trees.
Le Breuil is the longer and tougher of the two 18-hole layouts at Golf du Gouverneur. Brought into play in the early 1990s, the course winds its way round a number of water hazards...
The Montaplan course is the shorter understudy to the “championship” Le Breuil layout at Golf du Gouverneur but the Montaplan is set in delightful rural seclusion.
