Royal Mougins golf, open since 1993, reposes in a secluded valley near the town of Mougins and a short drive from Cannes. It is a serene Provencal landscape dominated by a river, venerable trees and ancient stonewall terracing. The course melts into it in a masterpiece of design and routing.
It was laid out by Robert Von Hagge and like his creations at Golf National, Les Bordes and Seignosse, Royal Mougins was acclaimed the nation’s best new course at its opening. This Golf course (with a capital G) is at once tantalising, robust and fulfilling. But it should carry a warning and we suggest it is not for those with handicaps in excess of 20. It is too tough, at least at first sighting.
The golf course is a par-71 with a card reading from 6,600 yards (SS72) to 4,930 yards (SS69) for the ladies. Most holes have five tees, some have six. So options abound. Royal Mougins is never less than undulating, is hilly in parts with a flatter forest area on the valley floor. You’ll face lots of awkward stances and devilish bunker shots.
The Signature hole for us on this course is : Hole #2 The Swan Dive Par 3 – 183 m.30 meters of vertical drop, with a green surrounded by water. If you take two clubs fewer than normal, the wind will work against you. A decisive hole on the course.
To summarize, the Royal Mougins Golf Club offers a high-end service with all the simplicity of the personalized welcome and perfectly prowled and suitable for passing players as well as regulars. This asset, Royal Mougins Golf & Resort owns and intends to use it!
