Golf courses in the Côte d'Azur
The region’s golf courses are prized for their beauty, quality and layout, many of them designed by some of the most highly respected course architects. Wherever you stay in the Côte d’Azur, you’re never far from a great golf course.
Cannes Mougins is one of the regions most prestigious courses and has held many European tour events. It is well maintained and has fast challenging greens. The views are not as spectacular as other courses in the region but I guess it’s about the golf not the scenery! There is also a driving range, chipping green and putting green.
