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.

Pete Dye did the best out of a piece of land that definitely was not perfect for the lay-out of a championship golf course. This being said, the course is tricky, but mostly fair and difficult. If you walk the course, you better be fit, because there is quite some up and down, particularly on the front nine. The maintenance was good, the greens were fast, the bunkers hard but playable. A good test of golf particularly if the mistral blows with 30 km per hour.
