La Forêt, 18-hole par 72 golf course in Tunisia
La Forêt is one of two Citrus Golf 18-hole par 72 courses. This hilly course, designed by the architect Ronald Fream, is surrounded by a pine forest and designed according to the prevailing winds (northeast and northwest).
The 6,066 meter (Men) / 5,235 meter (Ladies) La Forêt golf course is mainly intended for experienced players due to the blind holes and the various water hazards and bunkers protecting the undulating greens.
Description of certain holes of la Forêt :
The La Forêt course was voted the best course in Tunisia in 2017 and 2018 by the World Golf Awards.

Take care with long shots! A lateral water hazard, hidden when playing the second stroke, nestles just behind the Green.
