Course Insights

This is a perfect all year round golf course with sandy subsoil.  Designed in 1930 by Englishman John Morrison, with input from Arnaud Massey (one of France’s all-time sporting greats), it has been remodeled since the start of the millennium by Cabell B. Robinson.  This has, in the words of the architect,

“rendered the course less penal and more enjoyable for the general level of play of the resident members and visitors”.
