Let’s be real, there’s no way you’re going to attend the Monaco Grand Prix and leave your sticks (golf clubs) at home…
News flash, there’s no TopGolf in Monaco (maybe there should be) but that doesn’t mean you can’t have an amazing golf experience while attending the worlds most famous Grand Prix. Of course, if you’re wealthy enough to hit golf balls off your yacht docked in Monte Carlo, good for you!
As for everyone else, these are the top golf courses you should include on your itinerary when you attend the Monaco Grand Prix.
Golf Country Club De Cannes Mougins
Drive time from Monaco: 44 minutes
Nestled near the Valmasque Nature Park, Golf Country Club De Cannes Mougins is a fantastic golf experience. Surrounded by the Southern Alps, this track was founded in 1923 and is conveniently located a few minutes from Nice and its international Airport.
Le Chateau, Terre Blanche
Drive time from Monaco: 1 hour 12 minutes
Located in the heart of Provence, France, Terre Blanche resort is a stunning green oasis known for its world class hospitality. The “Le Chateau” course has been voted the 14th best golf course in continental Europe (2017). It’s a perfect representation of a parkland golf course that plays through lush forests and the rolling hills of the natural landscape.
Le Chateau de Taulane
Drive time from Monaco: 2 hours
Designed by the one and only Gary Player, Le Chateau de Taulane is your quintessential French golf course. The moment you set foot on the grounds you feel as if you are living in 16th century France with the presence of the gigantic Chateau on property. The setting is stunning and the golf course is a phenomenal experience.
Royal Mougins Golf Club
Drive time from Monaco: 1 hour
Another top class golf resort in the South of France, Royal Mougins should be a must play on every itinerary. Designed by American Robert von Hagge, it’s one of the most famous golf courses in France. Just down the road from Cannes, the layout is perfect for another amazing parkland golf experience.
Golf International Pont Royal
Drive time from Monaco: 2.5 hours
Golf International Pont Royal was designed by Spanish golf legend Seve Ballesteros. It’s a wonderful layout that incudes a 6 hole short course and a par 3 pitch & putt. Another benefit of playing here is its location to some of the best wineries in the world. We would highly recommend pairing a round of golf with a wine tasting.
If you’re looking to take a break from super models and champagne at the Monaco Grand Prix, tee it up at these golf courses! You won’t regret it…
