Golf architect Thierry Sprecher has laid out famous courses from Carcassonne to Saint Tropez, in the Swiss Alps and on the Chinese coast. He has designed a character course for Domaine de Manville. Course elements echo the former agricultural use of the land, geometric bunkers supported by stone walls, the shape of the greens, grassy rather than sandy bunkers, fairways bordered like former fields, olive groves and water obstacles, drystone terraces …
The Domaine de Manville course appeals. The balanced, moving course evokes many different sensations. A good technical course with great diversity in the design of each hole. 5,535 m long, it suits every playing level.
Throughout four years Domaine de Manville slowly and surely took shape and the golf course itself came into being, ceaselessly reworked and refined. Literally embedded in the rocky setting of Les Baux, the golf course does not seek to be an English green or an oasis. It is part of the landscape, eco-responsible and respectful of the natural resources. Plantings emphasize local species and the atmosphere is fragrant with pine, oak and olive trees.
Provence and the Mediterranean influences accompany the changing seasons and color the fairways. The golf course at Domaine de Manville complies with the constraints inherent in a protected region, and indeed goes beyond them. As beautiful as an olive grove, as alive as a vineyard, the course creates a series of connected spaces that enhance biodiversity and are conducive to local flora and fauna. New yet already timeless, the Domaine de Manville golf course is a French government-certified exemplary golf course.
