Dancing on the bridge and swinging at the gates of the Palace…
Popular for its cultural character, the city of Avignon has some good surprises in store for golfers who, 15 minutes from the famous bridge and the Palace of the Popes, can take out their clubs and take to the “Alpilles” course, the 18-hole Vaucluse course at Ugolf.
This complex, which celebrated its thirtieth anniversary in 2017, belongs to the “garden golf” category of the chain.
Initially designed by the duo Géry Watine and Thierry Sprecher, the golf course is rather narrow and technical with a design adapted to the flat relief of the Rhone Valley. It requires a bit of strategy to tackle the obstacles, the water hazards in particular, but especially the Mistral wind when it is in the game!
It is above all a friendly golf course open to all levels of play.
Sporting holidays and festive stays
The ideal location of the golf course makes it easy to alternate sports, leisure and relaxation. The proximity of several other courses offers great opportunities for playing but it is also a crossroads to radiate and discover the thousand and one facets of these sunny lands.
So between two swings, why not let yourself be surprised by “Les Luminescences d’Avignon”, a spectacular show in the Popes’ Palace, have lunch along the Rhone River or stroll through the cobbled streets of the medieval heart?
