Thanks to its warm, sunny climate and few rainy days, Monaco and the French Riviera is the perfect spot for a round of golf. Enthusiasts and visitors have plenty golf courses at their disposal to practise this sport, most of which welcome tourists and other non-members.
Golf in Monaco
However, you will find that the Monte Carlo Golf Club is actually located in La Turbie. This wonderful century-old course is rich in history and offers breathtaking views over mountains and sea- at the fifth hole you can actually see three countries at once! The 18 holes, par 71 course has some is very hilly and requires considerable accuracy. The green fees aren't cheap, but the elegant clubhouse and those extraordinary views of the Riviera make it worth the expense. There's a restaurant open every day except Monday and a practice ground on site, as well as a pro shop and caddy and equipment rental.
There's golfing practice offered at the Monaco Country Club (actually in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin), but for a real golf course the closest is the Monaco Golf Club in La Turbie.
From Beaulieu-Sur-Mer you have the choice of two nearby golf courses, both around a half hour drive, the Golf Country Club de Nice or the Monte-Carlo Golf Club. The Golf Country Club de Nice has a 9 hole course which also has pitch and putt facilities and an extensive driving range with more than 30 covered bays. There is also a practice centre at the Marina Golf Club, with two putting greens and a driving range with 30 places.
