Located at an altitude of 900 metres, the Monte-Carlo Golf Club offers an undulating, 18-hole course with views across the Mediterranean.

Luxury hotels, a casino, theatre, opera… Ever since Monte-Carlo was created during the reign of Prince Charles III, the Société des Bains de Mer, the jewel in the crown of Monaco’s economy, has invested in facilities to welcome and entertain a wealthy clientele. As head of the company, Camille Blanc also envisaged the construction of a golf course.

Unable to find sufficient land within Monaco to develop an 18-hole course, SBM turned its plans into reality on the other side of the border, at the foot of Mont-Agel.

 

The Monte-Carlo Golf Club was born in 1911, drawing on the services of Scottish professional golfer Ben Sayers, who was an instructor to royalty and nobility.

Built on a hillside, the Monte-Carlo Golf Club today offers nine holes overlooking the Mediterranean and a further nine facing the Alpine summits. The undulating course, which for a long time covered 4,206 metres, today stretches for 5,923 metres. A number of improvements have been made in recent years (the creation of a 6,000 square metre pond, automatic watering, etc.), thanks in particular to the efforts of Henry Rey, President of the Sports Association, and his committee.

The Monegasque club has a chalet-style clubhouse and a restaurant for its 500 members.

From 1984 to 1992, it hosted the Monte-Carlo Open, a tournament on the European Tour, whose winners included major champions such as Seve Ballesteros (Spain) and Ian Woosnam (Wales).

In 2019, the Monte-Carlo Golf Club hosted the first Princess of Monaco Cup, a charity competition with the primary aim of raising funds for the Princess Charlene Foundation.

The format was based on 18 teams of three players each, including one celebrity, who competed in an event attended by Prince Albert II. Participants in 2019 included racing drivers David Coulthard, Mika Hakkinen and Charles Leclerc, and footballer Richard Dunne. The Powers Properties team, captained by cyclist David Tanner, clinched the top position.
