Without doubt, Esterel ranks among the most prestigious and desirable of the courses strung along the French Riviera, and with its enviable position immediately to the north of Saint-Raphael, it is an extremely attractive option for golfing groups visiting this sparkling stretch of coastline.
The Estérel course designed by Robert Trent Jones Snr has a technically demanding layout that winds its way through stone pine trees. Doglegs, bunkers, water features and hilly greens will be the major difficulties of playing here. Fortunately, its length is contained.
The championship layout was laid out by Robert Trent Jones Senior, the prodigious and renowned course architect who is responsible for some of the world's most iconic new projects. From the back tees, Esterel is a challenging prospect, stretching to 6,402 yards, and carved into the beautiful parasol pine trees are some truly charming holes.
The peaceful location makes Esterel a delightful place to enjoy a round of golf, yet with its convenient location close to Saint-Raphael and the coastline, it is an extremely accessible option for French golf holiday makers as well.
