Le Golf National

Propelled into the spotlight by Europe’s awesome Ryder Cup victory in 2018, Le Golf National has cemented itself as a must-play European golf course. The club has two spectacular courses to play, L'Albatros and  L'Aigle, the latter of which makes for a memorable round of golf in its own right. However, after the world watched ‘Moliwood’ put on a historic performance upon its fairways, L'Albatros has become the most popular course in France

Thanks to its great location on the outskirts of Paris, Le Golf National is within easy reach of golfers traveling from the UK, choose from the Eurostar, a drive via the Eurotunnel or a flight into Orly or Charles-de-Gaulle Airports. Golfers are also spoilt for choice with accommodation, with a number of excellent hotels available, including the Novotel Saint Quentin Golf National

Golf Courses at Le Golf National

L'Albatros Course

L'Albatros is Le Golf National's centerpiece, and is the annual host to the French Open. Ranked 4th in France and 9th in continental Europe, L'Albatros was designed by Hubert Chesneau, and has hints of Florida, a splash of Ireland and a lot of France. The stadium course has been built in accordance with the most modern construction principles and joined the list of courses to have staged a Ryder Cup in 2018.

This is the toughest golf course around Paris, where the enormous, undulating putting surfaces are sculpted around great swathes of water and sand. The distinctly rugged feel of L'Albatros reminds you that this is a proper golf course, not a walk-in-the-park resort track, and is there to test even the best.

L'Albatros Course at Le Golf National is ranked as one of the best courses in France

2016 100th Open de France

Thongchai Jaidee claimed his 8th European Tour victory with a -11 total in the 100th edition of The French Open. Despite a stellar field including Rory McIlroy, Martin Kaymer and Lee Westwood, Jaidee was able to take the title courtesy of a brace of 68's over the weekend. His closing bogey on 18 was enough for a 4 shot victory over Francesco Molinari who finished strongly with birdies on 17 and 18 in a final round, best of the day, 66. The 17th hole again proved tricky, yielding just 5 birdies all week as the par-4 took top spot as Le Golf National's hardest hole.

2015 Alstom Open de France

A -13 total for Bernd Wiesberger was good enough to claim The French Open by 3 shots from Surrey's James Morrison. A closing round of 65 (-6) saw Wiesberger become the first Austrian to win on The European Tour and also claim the 500,000 euros first prize. The closing stretch of holes in 15, 16, 17 and 18 proved pivotal during the week with the par-4 18th hole ranking as most difficult over the 4 days, whilst 15 and 16 were tied as 2nd most difficult with the 484 yard par-4 17th yielding just 6 birdies all week to rank as the 6th most tricky.

2014 Alstom Open de France

Graeme McDowell produced a superb final round to overturn an eight shot deficit and successfully defend his French Open crown. The Northern Irishman carded a closing 67, the joint-lowest round on a wet and windy day, to win by a single stroke. American Kevin Stadler had a two-footer for par to force a play-off, but missed, leaving him tied for second with Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee at four-under par.

What the pros say:

“It’s going to be very dramatic and therefore a great course for The Ryder Cup. Especially the last few holes where everything will be decided. The 13th, with the water, then a par five which you can reach in two, then the last few holes are really breathtaking. On 15 and 16 you have water, 17 being a long par four and 18 water again so a lot of things can happen on the closing holes. It’s going to be quite thrilling.” – Jose Maria Olazabal

“I think Le Golf National is going to be a fantastic Ryder Cup venue for many reasons. Firstly, I can think of worse places in the world to stay in than Versailles, the Trianon Palace and the great hospitality and great food that we enjoy here. But on the golf course, the last four or five holes, in the natural amphitheatre that this golf course creates, I can only imagine how good the buzz will be coming down 15 and 16. They are about as good and dramatic a risk-reward par three and four you'll get. Then the 17th is a great par four and for matches that do come down the last, there's not going to be a better par four on The European Tour than the last at Le Golf National. I can really picture 40, 50, 60,000 people up on those slopes around that little cauldron of the last four holes, and I think the atmosphere will be amazing.” – Graeme McDowell

L'Aigle Course

The resort's second course is L'Aigle, which is certainly a more forgiving proposition than the neighbouring French Open venue. L'Aigle is shorter, at 6,489 yards, and is more sympathetically set up to welcome the average player. In the same manner as L'Albatros, the course is rough around the edges, and has a degree of links in its make up, but does not have the demanding hazards that make Le Golf National's main attraction so challenging.

L'Oiselet Course

In addition to the championship courses, Le Golf National has a charming little nine hole layout called L'Oiselet. Although short, the greens are demanding, making it useful for skilled golfers, as well as being a good stage for youngsters and those still mastering the finer points of the game.

L'Albatros Course (Le Golf National)

Amazing course. This course exceeded everything that I expected. From the greeting at the door, check-in, restaurant, practice area (complimentary bucket of balls was only maybe 13 balls), to the conditions of the course. Would love to come back and play this course over and over throughout my life.

L'Aigle Course (Le Golf National)

Great course. Fun and challenging throughout. The overall conditions of the course was exactly what I was expecting. The on site facilities were nice but the main reason of a two star rating was that the restaurant at the clubhouse closed at an extremely early hour. We started our round at 12:20 and didn't play slow at all. Upon our finish of the round we found out that the restaurant was closed for the day already. We like to sit back with some food and drinks and discuss the days' round.

This is a wonderful experience it really is and the course is superb. The staff at the course are also superb they really are, very friendly and informative about the facilities.

Great value championship golf venue
2nd time we've been to Le Golf National, would recommend it as a golf holiday destination to all due to it's easy reach from the South of England and the great value it offers. The hotel is ok with quite a modern look / feel and obviously next to the golf course which makes things very easy.

A real hidden gem, I don't know why more people from the UK don't travel here for a golf trip. The courses are fantastic and a real challenge, we've driven each time and whilst it is a long distance from Calais the roads are clear and it is relatively simple. 33 points is normally enough to win our tournament, the course is a real test.
