Grasse Golf Club, Alpe Maritime (06). (1907 - 1920s)

This club is a mystery. References to the course can be found here and there but only a few lines each time, even in local newspapers. It seems as though it was a project which started in about 1907 - 1910 with a few “rustic holes” curtailed by the Great War (with an 18-hole course according to Massy).

Report on the new course in November 1907.

Extract from Arnaud Massy's 1911 book "Le Golf" -  "The little town of Grasse also has a golf course. The course has 18-holes. A special automobile service allows easy access from Cannes to the links at Grasse."

A second attempt was made in the 1920s with limited success. The local newspaper “La Revue de Grasse” dated Sunday 6 August 1922 referred to the game of golf being played at “Pré du Lac” a place close to Chateaneuf, a neighbouring city to Grasse. It was also included in the famous annual “Guide Plumon” in 1930 it referred to “Chateauneuf de Grasse Golf” as being formed. It also provided a drawing of the clubhouse.

This was the last report found for the club.
