We have had the opportunity to play Golf at the not so well known Domaine de Saint Endreol which is situated half an hour ride by car from Frejus. If you love the Provence and enjoy playing Golf in the middle of this special countryside you should play here at Saint Endreol. The course is not only beautiful but with its 5,883 Meters uphill and downhill also very demanding.
Signature Hole is 13 - Par3 180 meters downhill to an Island Green - just spectacular! Greenkeeping is outstanding, Greenfee (76 Euro) more than reasonable. The clubhouse, beautifully styled as a Provence Farmhouse is still another highlight. If you haven't fallen in love with the Provence yet, after having played at Saint Endreol you surely will.

St Endreol is attractive, challenging, well laid out and could be fun. Unfortunately the greenkeeping is poor, the staff are unwelcoming and a bit snooty. It is also very expensive.
If you pay about 100 Euros to play a course you expect it to be well prepared. Unfortunately here (actually I've seen this problem at a lot of courses in France) they think it's a good idea to water-the-hell out of the fairways and leave the greens get nice and hard and fast. The results is no roll or bounce on the soft fairways and greens that will see even a wedge bounce hard and go straight through the back.
The 14th is a 500 yard par five with an elevated tee. You need to hit a long straight drive to have a chance of par. So imagine how disappointing it is when your drive from on high plugs on the fairway getting no roll at all. And then your long iron into the green will bounce hard and go into the river behind.
I believe poor green-keeping is holding golf in France back. Fortunately because this golf course is a bit harder than others in the area there are fewer slow four ball 'beginners' on the course - a problem which besieges French golf.
Expensive, not well maintained and unwelcoming - this is a course to avoid. The clubhouse restaurant is also quite disappointing with greasy food and very high prices (the Hotel's courtyard cafe nearby is great but not open more than a couple of hours a day). It is such a pity as well because with the setup around the quarry, interesting elevations changes and good greens - this could be something special. If only they were serious about golf! Perhaps they can hire an 'old school' Scottish greenkeeper.
