Located near Saint-Raphaël and Fréjus in the Var, the Valescure Golf and Tennis Club*** is a par 68 with a length of 5019 meters, open every day. Created with 9 holes in 1895 by a British colony led by Lord Ashcomb, it was extended to 18 holes in 1910 by the famous architect Harry Shapland Colt. The Old Course is the oldest course in the region and the 5th built in France.
Of high quality, wooded and hilly, in the middle of umbrella pines, it hosts great national and international events. Several holes are quite short but the lack of width of the fairways complemented by difficult roughs, numerous water hazards crowned with small greens impose a reflection on the whole course. Precision is the name of the game!
A special feature: the current clubhouse created around 1910 by the firm Boulton & Paul shipped it piece by piece from Norwich.
Electric trolleys and carts for rent.
You can dine at the Club House Brasserie, a charming wooden place built as the Norwegian pavilion for the 1900 World's Fair. Possibility to stay on site at the Najeti golf hotel in Valescure 4*, in a quiet and relaxing environment.
For dinner, you will be welcomed at the restaurant, which offers traditional cuisine made from fresh products. By staying at the hotel, you will benefit from preferential rates on your green fees.

A beautiful escape between the sea and the Esterel massif!
Message from the golf course: Created in 1895 by British aristocrats, the Golf de Valescure, surrounded by umbrella pines, is the oldest course in the Var and the 5th in all of France. With a length of 5019 meters and a par of 68, its design by the famous architect Harry Shapland Colt (1869 - 1951) has the particularity of offering several relatively short holes, which, at first glance, can make it seem easy to negotiate. The impression is misleading because in fact, the narrowness of the fairways, the difficult roughs, the many water hazards and the rather small greens are all elements that require constant reflection and wisdom in the choice of clubs. You have to know how to sacrifice length for precision.
