Here at Le Mas Candille, we’re not just about spa treatments, ultra-fine dining and luxury accommodation; we’re also serious about our golf. After all, with such a pleasant climate of plenty of sunshine and comfortably high temperatures, Cannes and Mougins are renowned for its idyllic golfing environment. You can take full advantage of this at Le Mas Candille through the fantastic golf clubs in our area. The Côte d’Azur Golfs Pass offers access to 10 different clubs and courses across the Cannes/Mougins region. These include some of the most acclaimed courses in south-eastern France, allowing you to effortlessly, and extensively, golf both Cannes and Mougins from our beautiful hotel.
THE COURSES - WHAT TO EXPECT
As opposed to having our own, solitary course, our excellent location gives our guests brilliant access to several of France’s leading golf clubs. The Côte d’Azur Golfs Pass provides you with entry to a range of clubs and courses, many of which have been recognised by See Cannes as some of the best golf clubs in Cannes. They’ve also been noted for their superiority by various other outlets, including Leading Courses. Our most popular clubs include:
ROYAL MOUGINS GOLF CLUB, MOUGINS
Home of the Cannes Open, the Royal Mougins is a highly exclusive golf club of outstanding quality. Known as a benchmark golf resort in Europe, and undoubtedly one of, if not the, best Mougins golf resorts, the Royal Mougins is ideally suited to golf enthusiasts. The club features a par 71, 18 hole, highly demanding course that runs over 6000 metres, and, while the course is usually members only, it is accessible through the Côte d’Azur Golfs Pass.
GOLF COUNTRY CLUB DE SAINT-DONAT, GRASSE
Super welcoming to visitors despite being incredibly popular with locals, the Saint-Donat offers two courses (one 18 hole and one 9 hole) which seamlessly steer between mounds, trees and rivers. The courses were created with all levels of golfer in mind, from experienced players to total beginners, with the club also featuring a practice range.
GOLF DE LA GRANDE BASTIDE, GRASSE
Featuring a short course, the Grande Bastide possesses a distinctly North American feel. With views as far as the Alps, and set within a peaceful area, the course is arguably one of south-eastern France’s most scenic (no easy feat, considering the neighbourhood!). Suitable for all skill levels, the course offers both fun for beginners and challenge for experts. A teaching pro is also on hand, with lessons available.
GOLF D'OPIO VALBONNE, OPIO
With an approachable course, known for its friendly and laidback atmosphere, the Valbonne is ideal for those with less golfing experience. In noticeably close proximity to the coast, yet surrounded by mountains, the Valbonne’s course remains sheltered from the wind without compromising on scenery. This oldest course on the Côte d’Azur even features Roman ruins, with a Gallo Roman aqueduct on site.
LE PROVENCAL, BIOT
A 9 hole course across hilly terrain, the Provençal boasts stunning panoramic views of the alps. The Provençal is accessible to different skill levels, suitable for both high-level players wishing to practice their short game, as well as novices, who will enjoy the course’s playful approach.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT GOLF RESORT IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE WHAT DOES LE MAS CANDILLE HAVE TO OFFER?
Boasting a perfect golfing climate and filled with numerous high-quality courses (Cannes and Mougins golf are both world-recognised), south-eastern France is a golf-lovers dream.
