On the day, free shuttle buses will leave from Antibes, Cannes and Monaco - Do not be late, the Antibes and Cannes buses will leave at 07:00 and the Monaco bus leaves at 06:30 sharp!!
There will be a number of free mini buses for several return trips in the afternoon. These transfer services are kindly sponsored by PRESTIGE DRIVER.
Due to reorganisation and increased participation, there is the potential for play to extend across to the Opio Valbonne Golf Course (96 players will play at the Grande Bastide with the overflow heading over to Opio Valbonne; if the total number of players is 128 or less we’ll all tee off at Grande Bastide).
The air-horn will sound at 08:30 at Grande Bastide and 09:00 at Opio Valbonne signalling the shotgun start. Please make sure that you have found your way to your designated tee-off by then!
