The english-style clubhouse is a beautiful wooden house that has seen the two courses built in Port Marly. In 1921, it was dismantled at great expense and moved to Saint Germain in Laye. The bar is non-stop in season with a snack service. The pro-shop, previously rustic, dating from 1931, has become a beautiful shop offering clothes and accessories. It has PMR access.
And after a game, don't forget the restaurant terrace that overlooks the green of hole 9 of more than 1000 M2. The largest in France !!!
