About
Set between Cannes, Nice and Grasse, the Opio Valbonne Golf Club is one of the jewels in the crown of the Riviera. Imagine an 18-hole course amidst the sea and the mountains, at the heart of a magnificent 220-hectare domain of undulating landscape in the shade of century-old trees. Just a few minutes from the most beautiful coastlines of the Cote d’Azur, this site benefits from the ideal geographical position.

Expensive for the quality of course. Poor drainage in wet months. Tee boxes overall poor. Staff displayed minimal courtesy.

Ok course not worth 85 EUR
Aug 2018 • Family
Course is ok but UK visitors will be disappointed given the quality of course you can play for this amount of money at home. Greens were good but the rest of the course is a little scruffy.richard

Good course with great welcome
Jul 2018 • Friends
The course is challenging, but playable. It is nicely designed into the terrain and no two holes are alike. The front nine comprises a number of shorter holes, but the back nine stretches out more. The elevated tee shot on the 18th is a neat finish. The course was in good condition due to the volume of water they irrigate welcome in the pro shop was very warm and helpful. The restaurant at the 18th green/10th tee was excellent both in terms of service and food. Don’t miss this one if you are in the area.

What a great experience!!
May 2018 • Friends
Returning from a business trip via Nice airport, I planned to play a course close to the airport, and Opio was my choice, as it's only about 20-25 mins drive to airport.

Found the course very easily, clear signage the last kilometers. Plenty of parking right in front of the entrance.

The clubhouse is a beautiful old manor, and right next to it, a couple of other buildings which serves as the proshop and the club restaurant.

Checking in was easy, the staff were very kind and helpful, and the proshop has a wealth of items, should you find yourself in need of anything.

We had a couple of practice swings on the range, a little restricted, as drives over 200 meters are not allowed, for good reasons: there is a public road at the end of the range!

Got out onto the course, and what a great place: beautifully laid out holes, winding in and out of the hills, with severals hole having a tricky turn, or an up/downhill play to consider.
A couple of odd holes, where you need to be careful, as you are playing against on-coming players from another hole, but this is probably the only possible way to lay out the course in these hills.

We finished our game and headed straight for the restaurant, to get a beer and some food.
The restaurant is perfectly placed: the terrace is right behind the 9. green, overlooking also the 10. tee and the 18. green a little further to the left. This allows for guests at the restaurant to follow the game quite well, while giving some players the jitters when teeing off on the 10., or hitting their approach strike on the 9.

The food was good, and prices were reasonable.

This is definitely a course worth a visit. The layout is a little funny at times, but for the most part you will need to play well, precise and be able to judge some up- and downhill strikes.

Recommended!

Worst golf hole ever played no 12 at Opio Valbonne
Dec 2017 • Couples
Opio Valbone refurbishing of the backnine is a Puzzle to me. How is it possible to actually design the worst hole ever. The par 5 12th at Opio Valbonne really destroyed the experience for me. Other than that I would only comment that Open Golf courses are generally not well maintained and the bunkers are terrible. That said, I have only played Grand Bastide and Opio Valbonne and they both have terribly maintained bunkers. It almpost seem like noone even bothers to rake the bunkers. Saint Donat is fatastic, always well maintained and same price but much better value for Money.

Fun to play :)

The 50 year old parklandcourse :) is nestled between the mountains and the sea.

Not very long course but plenty of nice views and interesting holes to play.

You can enjoy the shadow of the many old trees, plenty of olive trees... beautiful ruins to admire (aquadukt, walls...).

Relax to walk with a trolley... even if it's sometimes a little hilly.

Great compliments to the GREENKEEPER :) and his team who care for the course which is wellkept (teeboxes, fairways,bunkers and greens... everything is very good).

Improvement could be recommended for the unfriendly staff in the otherwise ok proshop. Not very customer oriented and welcoming :(

A good idea would also be to have a MARSHALL?! on duty during peak times. He could prevent that "normal" golfers have to wait and wait behind "wannabe" golfers without any "étiquette" and play rounds taking more than 5 hours :(

The BRASSERIE :) has a very nice terrace and is worth a stop after your round. Service is sometimes chaotic but always friendly.
Drinks and food are ok.

Course just keeps getting better every year.
Oct 2016 • Couples
We have played this course every year for the last five years. The condition (particularly the greens) has gone from very poor to our recent experience (10/8/16) of excellent.
One big caveat that will not affect locals.
THE RENTAL CLUBS ARE HORRIBLE.
For a variety of reasons we have stopped traveling with our clubs from the US, and have been very satisfied with other club rentals (Saint Donat etc) but we made the decision that, as much as we now like the course, we will not pay and play with the horrible condition of the clubs to rent.
