Golf de Chantilly - Vineuil

Golf de Saint-Nom La Breteche - Blue Course

France, Central France, Paris
5 (5)
Designer: Fred Hawtree
Course Opened: 1959

The Golf de Saint-Nom La Breteche facility to the west of Paris, is a 36-hole complex that houses two Fred Hawtree layouts opened in 1959. The Red is slightly better than the Blue but neither sets the world alight, with enjoying the gently sloping countryside and the stunning clubhouse structure, with its cobble stone surrounds, the most impressive part of playing at this club.

In general this is typical European Tour fare, any character Hawtree built into the layout has likely been beaten out during its years hosting the Lancome Trophy. Both courses provide a decent parkland examination, with fine maintenance, especially during tournament week, some strong back tees and quick tournament spec greens. Many targets are on the small side, and when firm and in tournament mode create quite a test of your approach play. Most of the holes are only moderately interesting, however, with fairways tending to play gently up or down the slopes without great flair or quirk and the water used to recreate holes that have been built more effectively elsewhere.

Nice club, but little to recommend for serious or experienced golfers.
