Le golf course of Vidauban is located in the heart of the Massif des Maures, in Provence. he is rightly considered one of the most beautiful courses in Europe. However, it is reserved for its members and their guests. Its exceptional layout is the work of architects Robert trent jones And his son Robert Junior.
The genesis of certain clubs is sometimes complicated. Indeed, Vidauban - formerly the Prince of Provence - is one of those. Emerged from the ground in 1999, this atypical club since reserved for its members and their guests has been talked about more often by the successive trials and appeals to the Draguignan court than by the beauty of the route and the nature which had seduced Robert trent jones from the seventies.
Literally fell in love with this Var countryside, the Californian architect then bought this property while promising to build the "ideal course" there! Between the death of his wife, illness and a consequent activity, he took his time, helped by his son Robert Junior, before seeing the birth of what some consider to be the most beautiful course in continental Europe.
Under these conditions, we can only regret that so few players can benefit from it. Today only twenty-five members share this club where everything seems ready as if a hundred players were going to disembark each morning. Most often played by cart on the 6486 meters of a classic par 72, given the distances between the holes, the design can only be seen on the hole in play. An additional luxury in the heart of the Plaine des Maures!
La land quality, the mowing of the greens, the decor, the alternating vegetation umbrella pines to other Mediterranean species, perfection is at all times. This environment is amazing even if nothing ostentatious disturbs the quietness of the game.
Constantly evolving, the club redesigned its drainage system, adding 175 km of pipes to a demanding basement. The undergrowth has been cleaned, often covered with wood shavings, and a drop of 30% of the watered surfaces does not affect the aesthetics or the quality of the game. In the absence of any signage, the holes appear. come together naturally, alternating wide fairways with water features or ancient rocks.
The clubhouse built as a mini Provencal village is a little too calm while the table served on the terrace goes to the essentials with beautiful salads and basic dishes of the mediterranean cuisine.
If luck smiles on you and you have the opportunity to tread these fairways one day, do not hesitate, cross France or the planet, the opportunity may not occur often ...
