A historical golf course and so British!

 

The sea, the sun, the art of living… the addition of a golf course at the end of the 19th century was all it required to make this resort beloved of the English aristocracy into an Eden on the Côte d’Azur. It’s why Saint-Raphaël today has the oldest golf course in the Var and 5th oldest in France! We have the British community to thank for the creation of its first 9 holes in 1895, in the elegant neighbourhood of Valescure famed for its mild climate.

At the beginning of last century, a programme of extension taken on by the golf course and landscape architect Harry Shapland Colt, world-famous for his expertise, confirmed the renown of this 18-hole course.

A place of memories and wonderful stories, set amidst glorious natural landscape at the foot of the Estérel mountain range, Valescure Golf Course is the epitome of chic and charm, the perfect invitation to the joys of the game.   If the relatively short distance of the course lulls players into a false sense of confidence, they’ll need to be careful not to get lost in its roughs – at times challenging – or its numerous obstacles.   Its extended fairways between rows of umbrella pines often requiring precision rather than tests of strength over its length.

 

 

 

A centenarian most definitely still in the game

 

A member of the ‘1895 Club’ (golf courses founded on that date), the mythical status of Valescure golf club  makes it a bucket-list must for all golf fans.

After completing the course, its unmissable club house naturally beckons, but the ultimate would be to ‘carry-over’ with a stay at the Golf Hôtel de Valescure.

Set in the heart of gardens with 62 rooms overlooking the course, this Najeti group establishment boasts the restaurant, ‘Les Pins Parasols’, a bar, ‘le Pavillon’ and a wellbeing centre. All in fact to hone not just your golf skills but everything else.
