On RN85 at the southern end of Mouans Sartoux (at BP gas station) turn left at traffic lights into Chemin de la Plaine direction Royal Mougins GC. After 1.4 km at roundabout "Victorin Hugues", take first exit (bear right) into Chemin de Burel. Follow signs to Royal Mougins Golf.
Royal Mougins Golf Club: You'll quickly realise that Royal Mougins is going to provide a testing and exciting golf outing. In character with several other Von Hagge designs, Royal Mougins places a high premium on precision from the tee, and an often hefty penalty if you are wayward. From the challengingly tight opening par-4 and dramatically plunging par-3 second (a hugely memorable hole) keeping the ball in play is key.
This well-maintained and stylishly bunkered course is separated into sections by a quiet local road and light railway, which run north-south through the course. Although split into sections, the flow of the course is held together by von Hagge's well-crafted but testing layout.
The rolling, undulating fairways are often quite tight, with considerable bunkering and mounding running alongside. The green surrounds are busily attended by mounding, bunkering, water hazards and run-off areas. You'll need to avoid several small ponds, not least as you approach the huge and heavily bunker-defended double-green at 3 and 18.
The more open parts of the course will demand as much from your golfing skills as the more wooded and tree-lined sections. The re-opening of the Grasse-Cannes light railway, which runs through part of the course, does not detract from this very fine and always challenging von Hagge layout.
Outside visitors (a maximum of 20 per day) welcome on weekdays and weekends.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.
Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
