Golf Courses in Antibes
Thanks to its warm, sunny climate and few rainy days, Antibes and the French Riviera is the perfect spot for a round of golf. Enthusiasts and visitors have plenty golf courses at their disposal to practise this sport, most of which welcome tourists and other non-members.
Antibes has two golf courses very nearby. The 18-hole Biot Golf Course is one of the oldest courses on the Riviera, offering a flat, lovely, (if very short) course of some difficulty. It offers gorgeous views of the old village of Biot, as well as a friendly club which welcomes non-members with a good restaurant, club rental, lessons, driving range and pro-shop. In nearby Sophia Antipolis, you'll find Le Provencal Golf, a 9 hole architect-designed course offering narrow fairways and stunning views of the Alps. To get some of the best golfing the Riviera has to offer, head slightly further inland to some world-class courses at Opio, Grasse or Mougins.
Near to Cannes is the Old Course at Mandelieu-la-Napoule, which is actually the oldest course on the Riviera. If you want to tread the greens with the celebrities, head inland to the world-class Cannes-Mougins Golf Club in the rolling hills (but remember your wallet-green fees will set you back 120-200 euro.) One thing the Riviera certainly isn't short of is golf clubs.
