GOLF UP, The Coolest Golf Facility in France
Updated: Dec 14, 2020
This summer, I decided to stay in France because of the pandemic and I went to The French Riviera (or Côte d'Azur) which is the Mediterranean coast of southeastern France. It includes famously glamorous beach resorts such as Saint-Tropez and Cannes, and the independent microstate of Monaco
I decided to stop and put my bags down at Le Clos des Oliviers and GOLF UP located at Grimaud, 10km from Saint-Tropez.
Firstable you need to know this is the first golf facility in Europe to be entirely covered with artificial grass, and the first in the South-Est of France to offer interactive golf games with the American technology «TopTracer Range».
I really appreciated the atmosphere around here and facilities are amazing.
To be honest, I’ve never seen something like that in France...
The golf part of the facility offers :
a 273 yard driving range,
3 private “training rooms” with the radar TrackMan for the lessons,
2 putting greens,
1 chipping green with a bunker,
a 9-hole golf course.
This place is of course open to golfers and non-golfers alike, no member card or golf green card needed.
Le Clos des Oliviers
During this trip I stayed for a week at LE CLOS DES OLIVIERS****, a 4-star accommodation that gathers 9 fully-equipped apartments on-site also located at Grimaud few meters from GOLF UP.
This domain stands in a peaceful and Mediterranean setting right on the Golf Resort.
I don’t think I need to talk more about it! There are no words needed, so enjoy the pictures below.
About the Titleist Regional Fitting Centre
When you get to GOLF UP, you’re able to have access to the Titleist Fitting experience.
This is the ultimate personal fitting experience. Golfers are treated exactly like PGA Tour players and we experience the same process, equipment and TrackMan Launch Monitor technology that the best players in the world rely on to improve their game.
A Titleist golf club fitting is so much more than determining your specs – it’s about learning which shots you need and finding the right clubs to hit those shots.
A properly fit set of clubs will help you get the most out of your lessons and game and allow you to have a much more enjoyable time out on the course. You could be making all the right moves that you’ve learned in your lessons, but if your clubs are ill fitted for you and your swing, they can hinder the results and even cause you to “swing around” your clubs rather than your clubs being an extension of your body.
