The Royal Mougins Golf Resort only has 600 members from around the world, located in the Community of Mougins, just 10 minutes outside Cannes on the French Riviera, it occupies the secluded “Vallon de L’Oeuf”, a quiet Provençal landscape, dominated by olive trees on ancient stonewall terraces. Royal Mougins Golf Club offers a golfing opportunity of the highest international standard making it a challenge for all levels of golfers.

Established in 1993 the 18-hole golf course designed by world-renowned American architect Robert von Hagge is played in an exceptional natural setting, spread out over 6,004 m (par 71). Eight ponds are linked by streams and waterfalls. A half-way house welcomes you at the 7th tee for a gourmet break in a natural and relaxing atmosphere.

Course management and target golf are prerequisites in order to score well on this tight and reasonably hilly course, dotted with lakes and rivers, often surrounded by characteristic sand bunkers. It is a course where stray shots are punished and you get away with very little and for that reason the course is best described as intimidating. The course is reserved for members, however guests of the golf resort can pay a green fee to play and often return to this gem of a course.
