Designed by one of the world’s most renowned course designers, the American Robert Trent Jones Senior, this 18-hole course was inaugurated in 1991. Since then, the de Barbossi estate, the biggest private estate on the Côte d’Azur at 1350 hectares, was bought in 2008 by the Franco-Lebanese businessman, Iskandar Safa, Barbossi, is a golf course, stables, a tennis club, a well-known wine estate and an open-air museum, all at once.
The golf course itself extends over 65 hectares, stretching between 4 lakes, the Riou de l’Argentière river, venerable cork-oaks, maritime pines, olive trees and mimosas, bunkers, undulating greens. Here the challenge is to place your drive well.
The course is designed to be technical, strategic and tactical at the same time, but still remains accessible to golfers of all abilities. And in the middle… sculptures by renowned artists like Georges Boisgontier, known as “the sculptor of time,” the extraordinary sculptor from Nice, Max Cartier, the sculptor of columns, Jean-Claude Fahri, and the adopted son of St. Tropez, Gérard Le Roux.
