Opened in 1990, The National Golf course is one of the few sites to offer 45 holes. It is part of the closed circle of 5-star Golf Stars.Designed by architect Hubert Chesneau (with Robert Von Hagge, consultant), it is located in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, a new town near Paris West. Two 18-hole golf courses (The Albatros and the Eagle) and 1 9-hole school course, the Oiselet. Premium golf academy. Hotel Novotel on site. It hosts the French Open every year and hosted the 2018 Ryder Cup. (7 million euros invested to meet the specifications)
The Chateau de Versailles is close to the golf course. To access golf, it's easy and very well arrowed. Exit number 4 south of Paris by the A86 (Versailles- Chateau - Guyancourt) then D91 towards Guyancourt and then Magny les Hameaux. After Renault's technocentre, sweat the Golf National panels. Don't expect a dream environment, the Golf National is located in a heart of new cities, the décor around is rather austere, not to mention the airfield where passenger planes and other helicopters follow one another.
What does the Albatros course have in store for you? Surrounded by large mounds, it remains rather flat despite a slightly muscular climb between 07 and 08 and certainly lighter towards the greens of the 10 and 12. The greens, as fantastic as they are very large (5 greens are more than 44 yards long), their fearsome slopes prepare you for a modest final scorecard... Get ready to play all year round on very firm, rolling greens that respect your line. To consume without moderation!. On the practice side, two solutions: one of 20 warm-up positions (Albatros and Eagle) completed by two putting-greens and an approach green. The second practice, within the Oiselet teaching centre, offers 74 covered positions, 16 of which are equipped with the paid TOP TRACER system. 5 greens and grass areas are available to perfect your warm-up or your perfecting.
