Designed by American architect Robert Trent Jones Senior, the course was inaugurated on 27 July 1991. Taken over by the Barbossi Domaine in March 2008, its loving new owners have given the place a makeover transforming this exceptional site into a true jewel on the French Riviera. Nestled in lush greenery in the heart of the Bay of Cannes Mandelieu, this golf course is an oasis of calm and a veritable outdoor museum. It is the only golf course on the Riviera to present a permanent collection of contemporary sculptures, twenty-two original creations dispersed throughout the course to the delight of golfers. Deployed on 5461 metres (Par 71), the layout of the Riviera Golf Barbossi alternates technical difficulties, strategic challenges and tactical choices, while preserving intact from beginning to end, the fun of the game and the promenade. The challenge is to tee off properly. Easier to negotiate, the following shots will have to contend with bunkers punctuating the fairways, the river Riou, lakes and undulating greens remarkably defended.
