What is speed golf? Speed golf is a mix between traditional golf and running. The aim here is to complete the 18-hole golf course in record time. The golf course regularly holds speed golf sessions (enquire at the golf course reception).
As well as a classic round of golf, Golf de la Grande Bastide offers fun golf-based activities.
Golf de la Grande Bastide in the heart of the Nice hinterland is ideally situated for exploring Nice and Cannes (only 20 minutes by car) and visiting local craft businesses making products like olive oil and exquisite perfumes.
Opio Olive Oil Mill

When you visit, you’ll learn more about the Michel family who have owned the mill for 7 generations, along with the history of the olive tree and olive growing. You will also have the opportunity to visit the traditional mill and the more high-tech mill. Your tour will end in the shop where you can buy oil produced by the mill.
