Riviera Golf de Barbossi

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1991

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.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
