With the Mediterranean Ocean softly glistening under the sun behind you and a myriad of mountains standing dramatically in front of you, whatever direction you swing a golf club on the fairylike Cote d’Azur, you are guaranteed to be inspired.
With such inspirational surrounding, that uniquely combines affluence and modernity with tradition and simplicity, the Cote d’Azur, for decades, has been a favorite European destination for golfers of all abilities and ages.
There are a total of 20 golf courses on the Cote d’Azur, all of which have been designed by some of the world’s most internationally-renowned golf course architects. Below is three of the best golf course the Cote d’Azur has to offer:
Golf du Claux Amic
Situated on the hills above the beautiful town Grasse with breath-taking views of the Med and the mountains, playing Golf du Claux Amic demands concentration and inspiration. Established in 1992 Golf du Claux Amic blends some intimidating drives with several more easy and ‘relaxed’ ones, meaning that this golf course caters for golfers of all abilities.
But it is perhaps Golf du Amic’s spectacular surrounding countryside that includes courses and holes lined with trees and a stunning vista looking down on the city of Cannes with the Mediterranean behind, that is this golf course’s greatest asset.

Located in the heart of the Cote d’Azur between the cities of Grasse and Nice, this motivating golf country club is open all year round.
