Cannes Mougins Golf Club

   
Cannes Mougins Golf Club a popular course in the heart of the Riviera

For many years this has been the regions most prestigious and best-maintained golf course. Cannes Mougins has of late been caught napping by its rivals, and only seems to be striving to recover its prestige. The golf courses outer appeal tends to hide the real difficulties.There are not many water hazards, but the ones there are they are strategically placed. While signing for a good score might look a possibility, the course always fights back especially since saving par can be so hard when you miss a green. Full of variety and nicely landscaped, this course rewards only the best, and especially skilled fighters of the ball.

Mandelieu - La Napoule

   
 

Has two courses which are very different from each other. The Original Course offers two golf courses (9-holes and 18-holes) which were laid out at the end of the 19th century on a seaside site in the middle of the Pinède, crossed by the river La Siagne. The Riviera Course was created more recently and offers an 18-hole course laid out in the Esterel Massif, with technical difficulties linked to the undulating and wooded landscape. A Golf Pass “Pass Golf Madelieu”giving access to both courses is available from the Mandelieu-La Napoule Tourist Office.

Riviera Golf Club

   
 

Not far from the beautiful centre of Cannes Mandelieu, the Rivera golf course is located in a totally different setting, as if to demonstrate the variety of French landscapes over a relatively limited surface area. A few flat and wide holes are in stark contrast with the often tightly laid out mountain style holes. Contact the Club for more information.
