Where2Golf says: 

Formerly known as Golf Cannes-Mandelieu Riviera, now Riviera Golf de Barbossi, this Robert Trent Jones design certainly gives you variety in abundance. Although quite short, at only 5444 metres (5950 yds), your game will be tested on a parkland course that combines partly-open and partly wooded environments in a predominantly natural setting. Many good looking holes are framed by forested and at times villa-clad hills, which characterise this part of Provence. The layout's middle section, from the short uphill par-4 7th (264 metres) to the even shorter par-4 15th (250 metres), possesses the most elevation changes, at times quite pronounced. Water flows alongside and through several holes on the flatter opening and closing sections of the course, with a small river (the Riou de l'Argentiere) twice slicing through the short par-4 5th, most notably in front of the green. A relatively short par-3 (139 metres) closes out the round at the 18th, although it rather dwarfs the very short par-3 8th, which measures just 100 metres from the back tees. With many short holes on offer, lower handicappers could card a flattering score here, although Riviera is not without its defences. The undulating terrain, good greenside bunkering, several tightish holes and frequent water in play, all demand accurate shot-making to stay dry and out of trouble. Although the Riviera name might have you thinking of views onto the Mediterranean, these are not found from the golf course, even though the bays and beaches of the Cote D'Azur are just 2 km away.

Did you know?

The Cannes Golf Club, founded in 1891 by Grand Duke Michael of Russia, was later re-named as Golf Cannes-Mandelieu. From 1991 it operated two 18-hole golf courses: the original Harry Colt designed Old Course (which Cannes-Mandelieu still own and operate), and 1.5 km to the west, the Robert Trent Jones designed Golf Cannes-Mandelieu Riviera. In 2008 the Riviera course changed ownership, to be known as Riviera Golf de Barbossi.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
