Golf Du Claux Amic
Located within an oak forest that was formerly used as a hunting ground, fairways sit at an altitude of around 500 metres above sea level, close to the small town of Grasse, the world’s perfume capital.
Located at an altitude of 500m the former 18th-century hunting estate bounded by a stone wall made an ideal refuge for deer. Now Claux Amic offers a natural and technical experience for golfers instead. A good reason why many golfers no matter what golfing ability choose to play there.
Established in 1992, then bought in 1998 by the Contini family already owners of Château de Taulane course which we also feature, the Claux Amic course underwent major works before re-opening its doors in 2013.
The course at Golf du Claux Amic was designed by Jean-Pascal Fourés and it is one of a dozen golf projects the French architect has been involved in over the last couple of decades.
French designer, Jean-Pascal Fourès had difficulty positioning the fairways on this rocky land, punctuated with cork-oaks and pines. The undulating 18-hole course, where there is little water, is considered to be a course where tactics and technique pay off better than power, with very narrow fairways, difficult rough, many dips and sandpits. Here, therefore the watchword is precision otherwise balls are easily lost in the surrounding woods.
The course also provides golfers with several beautiful panoramas. The third for example plunges towards the Bay of Cannes and the Lérins Islands whereas the sixth tee faces the stunning Estérel mountains.
