Course Reviews Played Albi three times whilst in the Tarn region for business and holiday. This course is one of the best cosmetically laid out tracks you will find in Europe.
At 6,500 yrds I would respectfully suggest that you will get the best from the course if you play to a handicap of between 14 - Scratch (Men) That should not deter higher handicapper from playing Albi but there are a number of risky water protected holes so take a supply of balls. Walking is no problem as the course is mainly flat although there are some sharp elevations that may test the knees; Buggies are available if needed. My experience suggested that the course is not busy during the main part of the day (09:00 - 15:00) but if you can try to book ahead to be safe. A MUST PLAY if your in the area.
Off course the Club House forms part of a Chateau complex which adds to the ambiance. Restaurant is Good, although more attention could be given to the changing rooms. Pro Shop also lets the standard drop a little, as it was as closed as often as it was open on the occasions I played. However the Golf is the main consideration so on that basis I could live with other slight inconsistencies. Would not hesitate to play Albi again. Cost for 18 holes (2012) £38.

Playing this was a treat from start to finish. The course is in a stunning setting in the Tarn valley and the river views and hilly backdrop more than compensated for our mediocre golf. There is plenty of water on the course, so we stocked up with spare balls, but found that the layout is more than fair and the water only comes into play if you're a wild hitter. Best hole is number 13 - a breathtaking drive down to the riverside. Course is very well maintained - we hit off at 8.30 a.m. and the greens had already been mowed. Staff in the proshop and the restaurant were helpful and welcoming, and lunch was good too. Only criticism - the changing room and showers were poor for a club of this standard.

This is a beautiful but challenging course almost always in excellent condition.The course is long but often a blast with a driver is not the best shot to play.This is mostly an open links style course with lakes and rivers coming in to play on almost half the holes. Big undulating but heavily bunkered greens on the par threes and fours make the second shot vital. Keep it on the fairway and out of the water to avoid wracking up enormous scores. You really need to think your way around this one and play conservatively, attack it and you will perish!
