Additional Information

Cannes Mandelieu Old Golf Course

AN EXCEPTIONAL LOCATION ON THE CÔTE D’AZUR

Located within the Cannes Mandelieu neighbourhood between the Bay of Cannes and the River Siagne, this 177-acre golf course was first underwritten by the exiled Grand Duke Michael of Russia in 1891.

Famed British golf course architect Henry “Harry” Colt designed the first nine-hole course, known today as the “Grand Duke.” In the late twentieth century, a second eighteen-hole course named the “Old Course” was extended north across the Siagne by architects Lucien Barrière and Sire Marino Vagliano.

Following these improvements, the ownership of the course was transferred to the Camerini family in 1997.

Pullman Cannes Mandelieu Hotel

A unique panoramic view of the sea.. your feet in the water and relaxation in the sun to recharge your batteries.

The upscale Pullman Cannes Mandelieu hotel is located facing the sea, in the bay of Cannes, near the city centre of Mandelieu. Five minutes by car to Cannes-Mandelieu airport; La Croisette, Cannes city centre and its many luxury shops are only 10 minutes away by car. The Pullman hotel stands out for its private beach with deckchairs and outdoor swimming pool and casino. It also has a restaurant, bars, a nightclub, a fitness lounge, direct access to the sandy beach and a tennis court and is a short 10 minute walk to the golf club.
