How far to the Nearest Golf club from Monaco?

It’s probably not the first sport you would associate with Monaco, but there is in fact a plethora of excellent golf courses near the Principality to cater for all ages and abilities of golfers.

Indeed, Monaco might well be the second smallest and most densely populated country in the world but beyond the high rise apartment blocks and skyscrapers are at least half a dozen golf clubs within an hour’s drive from the city centre.
Here are some of our favourite greens for the budding Ballesteros’ amongst you.

Golf de Monte-Carlo, La Turbie

The closest course to Monaco is the Golf de Monte-Carlo, located on the Route du Mont Agel in La Turbie. The course, which lies at 900 metres, is open all year round and enjoys some of the best views of any club in the world. At just ten minutes from the centre of Monaco, it is ideal for a quick game between business meetings or a spot of sightseeing.

Golf Club de San Remo

The next closest golf course to Monaco will suit those of you who feel more familiar in Italian than in French. Located in San Remo, just 28km from Monaco, the Golf de San Remo boats an extremely good 18-hole course which was built in 1932. It has since hosted a large number of important golfing events such as the Masters, the Italian Open and the Italian PGA Championship.

Golf Country Club de Nice

Approximately the same distance away in the opposite direction is the Golf Country Club de Nice, which is about a 25 minute drive from the heart of Monaco. Here you will find a well-manicured 9-hole course without the stunning views of the Golf de Monte-Carlo.

Royal Mougins Golf Club

With hotel, spa, golf club, and restaurant this 5-star golf club is just over 30 minutes from Monaco. She is part of the “Finest Golf Clubs in the World” and offers a 18-hole regulation golf course, designed by the world-renowned architect Robert von Hagge.

“The Royal Mougins Golf Course is a par 71 with a length of 6 004 m. Robert von Hagge has consciously used both the rolling hills and the lower, flatter forest area in the valley in order to create a golf course with a maximum of variety and different landscape scenarios. The course area comprises 8 lakes linked together with a river system with waterfalls and quiet streams.”

Golf Country Club de Cannes-Mougins

Perhaps the most famous golf club on the French Riviera is the prestigious Golf Country Club de Cannes-Mougins, an exclusive club set in beautiful parkland which was founded in 1923. This 18-hole club is approximately an hour’s drive from Monaco but well worth the trip.

Menton Golf Club

This little six hole pitch and putt and driving range is a great place to get a bit of practice. There are six holes, all with astroturf greens, 17 driving range bays, a chipping and putting area and a club house which serves food at lunchtime. See: Menton Golf Club.
