Côte d'Azur & Provence
There are almost sixty-five courses across the six departments in the Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur region. That’s 10% of all the courses in France. What makes them so special? It’s that they provide every kind of panorama possible, on every kind of course. A tenth of French courses are located in the Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur region. Of the five oldest courses established in France, two saw the light of day by the Mediterranean, Cannes Mandelieu in 1891 and Valescure en 1895. It goes without saying that this region lends itself to golf with an amount of sunshine unequalled elsewhere in the country.
The Côte d'Azur has 17 courses open for green fee play, 10 of them located in towns around perfume capital Grasse. The courses include the historic Old Course of Cannes-Mandelieu, established in 1891, Cannes-Mougins and Saint Donat country clubs, Royal Mougins Golf Resort and Open Golf Club venues Grande Bastide and Opio Valbonne.
The neighbouring Var department offers a further 15 courses a short drive away, with its facilities including Terre Blanche – one of Europe's finest golf resort – as well as Saint Endreol and Dolce Fregate golf resorts, the Robert Trent Jones Sr-designed Golf Blue Green L’Esterel and Pete Dye’s Barbaroux golf courses. In total, the six departments of the Provence Alpes Cote d’Azur region offer almost 65 golf courses, nearly 10% of all France’s golf courses.
The new Côte d'Azur Golf Pass gives golfers special deals for multiple rounds on 20 partner golf courses in the area.
