The qualities of the Spanish Champion,Severiano Ballesteros can be found in his design of the golf course at Pont Royal which is perfectly integrated into the natural environment with a range of challenges for golfers of all levels.
Pont Royal is ideally situated in the Commune of Mallemort, between Aix and Avignon, 30 minutes from the TGV stations and the airport Marseille –Provence. The golf course offers great views of the Alpilles, the Luberon and the valley of the Durance.
Beautifully maintained, the golf course of Pont Royal will reach its 25th birthday in 2017 and is open for all golfing visitors. It offers a real challenge to players of all levels thanks to its large and numerous tee boxes and the variety of shots to play.
It offers an excellent test of golf in all seasons attested by the organisation, most years in October, of the Masters 13, a prestigious tournament on the calendar of the European Tour.
In 2010 Pont Royal Golf Club constructed and equipped a centre for golf training. The Durance, comprises a six hole course almost 1000 metres in length, a practice driving range, 3 greens for practising approach shots and a 300 square metre putting green. Also there is an area of 1.5 hectares dedicated to the short game with 5 greens.
