The Château de Taulane, and its course, now there’s a story. Right beside the Route Napoléon, at the heart of the Prealps, this château was built in 1760 on 340 hectares of pinewood by Louis-Auguste de Lisle Taulane, officer in Louis XV’s navy.

Opened in 1992, the Château de Taulane course had a previous design by Sir Thomas Henry Cotton, the British golfer come designer.

At the end of the 80s, Mario Contini, an Italian businessman who made his money in oil, a golf enthusiast, bought the Taulane estate. He entrusted the 18-hole project to his friend, Gary Player, the first of two courses he designed in France, along with the Gassin Golf and Country Club, also known as the Golf Club Saint-Tropez. In Taulane he designed a “butterfly” course of 120 hectares, considered to be an honest course without traps.

This course is made up of several water features to spice it up. The double pool, bordering the third and fifth fairways, can be daunting to some players. Another, by the ninth and eighteenth double green, is a real ball-magnet. These two holes, which are together opposite the chateau, are both the distinctive feature and the main difficult part of the course.

The viewpoints are also part of the experience: near the twelfth green and the thirteenth tee, Mount Lachens, the highest peak in the Var, is in the line of sight. At an altitude of 1,000m, the Golf du Château de Taulane is only open seven months a year, between April and October.
