FOUR AND EASY FOR ROYAL MOUGINS AT WORLD GOLF AWARDS
Royal Mougins Golf Resort is celebrating a fantastic hat-trick after being named as ‘France’s Best Golf Hotel’ at the annual World Golf Awards for the fourth year in a row.
The exclusive venue on the French Rivera confirmed its place among Europe’s premier golf resorts after receiving the leading accolade at the sixth edition of the event at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi on the evening of Tuesday 29th October 2019 – regarded as the most prestigious awards programme in golf tourism.
Situated four miles from the glamorous resort town of Cannes - – world renowned for its International film festival, luxury shops, designer boutiques, beaches and opulent nightlife- Royal Mougins is the French Riviera’s only golf resort and has quickly established itself as one of France’s elite golfing venues, helping to set the standard for European golf resorts thanks to the quality of its 18-hole championship course, the pristine nature of its setting, and its top-of-the range services.
The award is the latest accolade to be bestowed on Royal Mougins, with other notable successes including the resort being named in Golf Worldmagazine’s benchmark list of the ‘Top 100 Golf Resorts in Continental Europe’.
Jurgen Wondergem, general manager at Royal Mougins Golf Resort, said: “It’s a great honour to receive fresh recognition from one of the golf industry’s most prestigious event, and to win the award for the fourth successive year is an amazing achievement. We are always striving to improve the golf experience that we offer to our guests, and hopefully this award will help lay the foundations for the resort to enjoy further success in the future.”
Laid out in a wooded vale and designed by world-famous architect Robert Von Hagge – designer of the Albatros Course at Le Golf National, venue for the 2018 Ryder Cup – Royal Mougins’ 18-hole championship course has hosted the European Tour’s Cannes Open on four occasions. The reworked 6,566-yard course winds its way around scenic wooded vales, rivers and lakes – several with picturesque, tinkling waterfalls.
The resort also features a driving range with a performance studio and the Prime Golf Academy on site – led by Victor Dubuisson’s former coach, Stéphane Damiano.
