This 18-hole course carved through the white rock of the Alpilles is filled with the sound of cicadas and the scent of thyme and lavender. Golf de Servanes is the essence of Provence.
Architects Thierry Sprecher and Gery Watine took advantage of this picture postcard setting to create their scenic course. It starts at the foot of the rocks with undulating fairways bordered by olive groves, continues with an American flavour (two huge island greens) and ends surrounded by maritime pine trees. All set to the sweet song of the cicadas!
Players of all abilities will appreciate the beauty of the landscape, the shade of the olive trees and the cascading lakes.
We know how to take care of you at Golf de Servanes. You’ll start off with the easiest hole, hcp 18. Watch out for the fairway bunker on the right.
The 2nd hole is a short par 3. Try to play to the left – the slope will bring the ball back. The hardest part of this hole is on the green.
Fabulous panoramic view of the Alpilles. Difficult green and green attack – aim left.
Still following the Alpilles, the 4th hole is tight but it’s a short par 5. So, play strategically and keep the ball in play.
This hole is your big challenge, as it’s the most difficult one on the course. Tip: play it as a par 5, as it’s very tight coming towards the green with an out of bounds on the right.
An island par 3 – the challenge is to find the right club without being distracted by the view.
A long par 4 with the house of the famous Marius on the left. Be careful: the poplars on the right can be overly friendly.
A parallel par 4 at the 7th hole with a very large green, so watch out for the position of the flag.
A very attractive par 5 with a water obstacle on the right of the fairway. Big hitters need to take care.
Draw your tee shot to the right on this hole and the slope will bring the ball back. Very well protected green.
Choose to drive above or between the laurels from the men’s and blue tee markers.
A par 3 with a water obstacle in front of you. Less adventurous players should aim left, where the water obstacle is narrower.
The longest hole of the course with a 90° bend to the left 100 m from the green. Strategically, you should place the ball more to the right for a good opening.
Draw to the left on this tight hole to have an opening on the second stroke because the trees on the right are very tall.
A short par 3 but watch out for the short bunker on the green. It can throw a spanner in the works.
A long par 4 with a prevailing wind that is often against you and a raised green that is wider than it is long.
The uphill hole means your drive must be well placed, as the second stroke is tricky (steep slope and bunker in front of the green).
To finish off, a very attractive par 5 with a stunning view. The aim is to keep the ball on the fairway by drawing to the left (there’s danger on the right all the way to the hole).
