A French Riviera resort such as Cannes could not live up to its fame only by putting forward the lovely sandy beaches, the spirited nightlife and the wonderful shopping opportunities it actually makes available. Cannes is rightfully deemed one of the top French Mediterranean resorts also because this formula of attractions is complemented by some of the most appreciated golf courses in France.
Thus, Cannes-Mandelieu Golf Club – located some 7 kilometers northwards from Cannes – has the reputation of being one of the oldest ones in France, and by force of its tradition it is also one of the most respected and popular with the enthusiasts of this sport. Founded at the end of the 19th century, Cannes-Mandelieu Gold Club features an 18-hole course – referred to as the Old Course – and a 9-hole course – also called the Grand Duc – the beautiful and challenging landscape and topography of the courses being complemented by other facilities, such as restaurant which looks over the Old Course and offers the most inviting Mediterranean dishes to its clients. The shop located at the entrance of the clubhouse is mostly destined for professionals who care to acquire the most recent offers of famous brands in terms of sportswear, accessories or personalized products.
Royal Mougins Golf Club is located 8 kilometers northwards from Cannes, a distance which can be run in ten minutes and leading to the core of a lovely Provencal forest covering an extremely challenging topography duly appreciated by the golf enthusiasts visiting the courses owned by this club. On top of all, the Golf Club as such is part of the greater Royal Mougins Golf Resort, meaning that clients can also benefits from the services provided by the many amenities with which the resort is fitted: a 4-star luxury hotel, a most modernly provided spa, a restaurant observing a strict Mediterranean cuisine and a pros’ shop.
Another excellently fitted golf club near Cannes refers to Riviera Golf Club, located 10 kilometers south westwards from the city as such, and its topography encompasses some sloping areas and a few lakes rendering an extremely challenging 18-hole course. The restaurant and its lounge areas are perfect for relaxation, but the fact that the golf course owned by the club has been designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones – a genuine master of golf course architecture, who has worked on about 500 golf courses, both designing and redesigning them – is where the true reputation of this golf course resides.

As a supplementary notice related to all of these venues is that enthusiasts – pros and amateurs alike – are advised to make reservations in a timely manner, since the respective clubs and courses are booked most of the time and hardly squeeze in clients who just happen to drop in unexpectedly.Go to top
