A port harbouring incredible golf

There are many great courses around the great cultural port of Marseille, not only does the city boast tremendous cultural roots but an abundance of brilliant courses to pick from. Golf International de Pont Royal is one of Marseille’s best courses, having hosted the Open de Provence on the Challenge Tour in 2019, the course was well-received by the pros who loved its design and integration with the natural environment.

Golf de Servanes is another of Marseille’s top golf courses, although it hasn’t received the same prestige as Golf International de Pont Royal, it still an outstanding course which you need to check out if on golf break or a tour of the South of France.
