Golf Sainte Baume is located in Nans-Les-Pins in the heart of the Sainte-Baume Regional Nature Park.
One of its main environmental concerns is safeguarding its ecosystem and promoting the local flora and fauna. As a result, it is one of the few French golf clubs to have been awarded an international ecolabel by the Golf Environment Organisation (GEO).
This global organisation recognises golf courses that meet more than 300 stringent sustainable development criteria in six different areas: water, energy, pollution control, nature, management and suppliers.
Our staff can be proud of the hard work they put in every day, which we endeavour to share with our golfers.
At Golf Sainte Baume, protecting the environment is about more than certification. It’s at the very heart of what we do, led by the golf club management team and supported by all our staff. The 18-hole golf course is built on land that forms part of the Sainte-Baume Regional Nature Park. This makes it a unique habitat for local flora and fauna, which we are keen to protect.
What are we doing in practical terms?
We have an incredible tool at our disposal—a place steeped in history and heritage—that we must offer at its best by preserving it as well as possible, so it can continue to develop.
Taking care of the land you play on is at the heart of what we do. We study its soil topography, slopes, water accumulation and aridness. We also assess which machines are most effective at mowing the rolling greens and give the best result. The staff at Golf Sainte Baume are passionate about what they do and we are happy to answer any questions, requests or queries you may have. It will be our pleasure to explain the specific features of our golf course—and your golf course—to you!
In 2019, we decided to create a compact course on an unused parcel of land behind the driving range. It is quite difficult to build a compact course when you’re trying to protect the environment and work in an environmentally friendly way.
Let’s take a look at some of the key steps in the process:
We wanted the course to be scenic, golf-friendly, technical and fun, while still being attractive and challenging. And we wanted to conserve its flora and fauna. We needed to develop the course so it would flourish itself, with as little human and chemical intervention as possible. These were the challenges faced by the golf club manager and his staff, and you will hopefully be able to see the course for yourself and try it out a few months from now.
