About Golf in & around Saint Tropez
Thanks to its warm, sunny climate and few rainy days, St Tropez and the French Riviera is the perfect spot for a round of golf. Enthusiasts and visitors have plenty golf courses at their disposal to practise this sport, most of which welcome tourists and other non-members.
The Golf Club Saint Tropez is actually located in Gassin, and offers an 18 hole, par 71 course set in countryside of hills, forest, vineyards and sea. It is relatively exclusive and therefore avoids the crowds you often find at other Riviera golf clubs. There is a golfing academy, an executive 9 hole course with driving range, and a spa and restaurant in a spacious, elegant clubhouse reminiscent of a fine Provencal farmhouse. There's also the highly regarded Golfe de Beauvallon further along the coast. It is situated by the sea and considered to be an excellent course, offering a moderate to hard 70 par, 18 hole game with stunning views of the Gulf of Saint Tropez.
This area is good golfing country, and those visiting Sainte-Maxime have several golf courses to choose between. The 18 hole, par 72 course at Golf de Sainte-Maxime has wonderful views across the coast and mountains from above the town and a quite challenging, hilly course.
The closest golf course to Frejus is the Golf and Tennis Club Valescure just outside Saint Raphael, with an 18 hole, par 68 course. This is a very short course with narrow fairways, small greens and a number of water hazards. There are also excellent courses in Cannes, Saint Maxime and Saint Tropez
The Leyrin Island - Golfing monks? Not really- so you're out of luck if you'd hoped for a quick round of golf on the island. There isn't a golf course on any of the islands but of course there are plenty of world-class golf clubs back on the mainland. So you are best to stick to those!
