Old Golf course
City: Cannes, France
With the 18 fairway as a backdrop, “La Terrase des Oliviers” remains the perfect place to have a coffee or relax with a drink after a game with friends.
The “Old Course” covers an area of 74 hectares planted with 4,000 parasol pines and attracts some 50,000 visitors a year. Crossing the Siagne on a ferryboat during a round of golf is one of the distinguishing, characteristic features of this course; in winter, the sea breeze blending with pine and mimosa essences diffuses an unforgettable scent. The magnificent “Norman”-style Club House reigns supreme in this extraordinary scenescape, magnificently protected by the gigantic parasol pine which has towered over the establishment down through the centuries.
