The Courson-Monteloup golf course was created by one of the largest sports club in France, Le Stade Français.
Robert von Hagge was commissioned to design four loops of nine holes and they opened for play in 1991.
Courson is located a mere 45 kilometres to the South of the heart of Paris, and is a very popular golf club for Parisian golfers.
The Green and Black course (Vert & Noir) is widely considered to form the better layout, but the Lilac and Orange course (Lilas & Orange) is also a very solid test, albeit somewhat shorter in length.
Choose your tee box carefully as some of the two-shot holes can be brutal, especially playing into the prevailing wind.
Von Hagge created hills running alongside many of the fairways in a links-like style and this has created an interesting almost self-contained feeling to many of the holes. With enormous, multi-tied greens that are often well protected by bunkers, approach play is key to a good score here at Courson.
Let’s hope the greenkeepers are not feeling too wicked when you play, otherwise you can expect a few three putts or worse!
