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.
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.
