The Golf de Biot, also known as the Bastide du Roy is one of the many sites in Biot where the tradition of golf lives on. With a driving range, restaurant and pro shop, the Golf de Biot has a magnificent 18-hole course accessible for beginners in a charming and exceptional site just at the foot of the village.
Provençal Golf is located near the Saint-Philippe shopping centre in the heart of Sophia Antipolis. Its outstanding 9-hole course is perfect sharing the passion for the game, with a stunning view of the hills and mountains.
In addition to the driving ranges at these two courses, there are two additional ranges in Biot. The first is at Académie Autiero, Biot’s golf school. With 32 tees, a pro shop and a bar, the school also offers lessons and training courses. The second driving range is at the Stéphane Damiano training centre in Sophia Antipolis, with a programme adapted to all types of players.
The word appears to come from the Netherlands, where the game was called “colf”, from the German word “kolbe” (club). In the 16th century, there were several mentions of the words “gouff” or “golf” in official texts. Finally, when club houses were introduced, the word golf remained. The word is also confirmed on a document dated 1457.
