Located right in the heart of Provence, and somewhat removed from the top tourist destinations of Avignon, Aix, St. Tropez and Cannes. Barbaroux was laid out by the architects Pete and P. B. Dye, père et fils, in 1989. The locale is rugged and hilly, and it took a design team with the imagination of the Dyes to find a way to craft such a superb course on what is, for all its scenery, a less-than-promising setting for golf. The front nine plays across level, park-like lowlands, but the Dyes of course keep things interesting. The back nine, on the other hand, is a real thrill ride that runs up among the surrounding hills and offers breathtaking vistas wherever you look from any of the holes. So don't let the relative remoteness of Barbaroux discourage you from visiting one of the finer courses in the south of France.

Barbaroux is the only Pete (and son) Dye course in France and it is a bit what you can expect from a Pete Dye, difficult, yet great! It is true that the course lacks a bit of coherence but each hole is an adventure and you definitely have to be focus, or you'll be punished heavily. Over the 18 holes, you'll go through a vineyard, a forest, some lakes, and maybe through a storm (very often in the region!). Some of the holes are very spectacular such as the par 4 11th, were the green is a mere 280 yards away... but it is 280 yard carry over a lake if you wanna be aggressive! The stretch 14 to 17 is fantastic with holes completely different including lots of bunkers and water on several holes. My preference goes to the 17th with a tee shot over a lake where you should land before the other lake if you hit it good but not DJ good and then a second shot where you can attack the green directly but... water awaits on the side of the green. I chose the "green in regulation" strategy, worked out great despite the lightning a few hundred yards away... Overall, a very good course, challenging if you don't play well, but not unfair either. Yes, it is remote, but if you like golf who cares :-)
