Golf Chateau de Fontenailles

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1991

Golf Chateau de Fontenailles: GOLF COURSE WAS PERMANENTLY CLOSED IN THE LATE-2000s.

[Original Where2Golf description]: A mixture of woodland and open spaces provides the backdrop for this thoroughly enjoyable golf course in the far south-eastern outskirts of Paris. Three challenging nines, laid out on predominantly flattish terrain, make up the 27-holes at Fontenailles.

The White and Yellow nines combine to form the championship course, with plenty of water to negotiate on the White-nine, less on the Yellow-nine, although some substantive bunkering will keep you on your toes. The good-width fairways will be enjoyed by big-hitters, while the usually excellent greens will ensure your putting game is thoroughly tested. The Blue-nine is the shortest of the three, but also provides an enjoyable challenge in this quiet and nicely wooded setting.
