Looking for 18 holes? Golf Courses in Provence and Cote d’Azur

When you think of a golfing holiday, Provence may not be the place that first springs to mind. Perhaps it’s Scotland or Ireland that you think of first. While we agree that golf may have been invented in Scotland, and almost any golfer would love to play at the Old Course St Andrews. In addition, Ireland had 400+ golf courses, including Lahinch, which skirts the Atlantic coastline.

However, if you want a Mediterranean golf experience with great weather, blue skies and a culinary reputation, we have compiled the following golfing guide for Provence, Alpes and Côte d’Azur. The following list is organized by department within the region, and we will continue to add to the list once we finish golfing.

Alpes Maritimes

The Alpes-Maritimes department stretches from the French Riviera beaches to the southern Alps ski resorts to the Italian border. Surrounded by the Var and the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, the Alpes-Maritimes includes densely populated urban areas and famous Côte d’Azur cities. However, from vineyards to hiking trails, plenty of untouched wilderness awaits exploration. And there are many options for golfers.

Alpes de Haute Provence

Alpes-de-Haute-Provence is nature’s patchwork quilt featuring mountains, gorges, rolling valleys, lavender fields and pockets of remote villages and busy towns. The Durance River plays an essential role in this department, featuring high mountain peaks of the Alps and the lower alpine foothills with remote villages. While there are other rivers, most of the watershed from the mountains runs down the Durance towards the Mediterranean. Here is our visitor’s guide to this part of Provence.

For many visitors, the Bouches du Rhône is their arrival point in Provence, whether they arrive by plane at the Aéroport Marseille Provence in Marignane or by train. There are plenty of options for golfers in the Bouches du Rhône.
