5900 m long with 4 holes along the Atlantic coast, architect Robert Trend Jones.
We had rain and wind for 2 days and remaining days were sunny.
For the Royal Mougins Team, the prime objective was to keep our place in this French elite for the next year. The best way to do this is to be in the first 8 teams at the end of qualification and 2 days stroke games.
This objective was fully achieved with the 3 position for our Club out of 16 Teams and qualification to the finals match plays. In our 4-year history being in the 1st National Division it was the highest position we ever had!
In the 1/4 finals, played in match play format, we lost 3:2 to the Bondues Team in the very closed and with plenty of drama matches.
Team of Bordelais became French Seniors Teams Champion 2019, after biting Arcachon 3:2.
