About the course

  • The Course:

    18 holes. Tree-lined & open parkland. Gently undulating terrain - a few slopes to climb.

  • Surroundings:

    Woodland (Forêt de Chantilly).

  • Designer:

    Original 18-hole Longeres course designed in the 1920s by Tom Simpson, when he also redesigned the original 9-hole Vineuil course (extending it from 9 to 18 holes). The Longeres suffered badly during WW2, and most of it was abandoned after the war. In the 1980s English architect David Steel brought five original Longeres holes back into play, together with 13 new holes which he designed.

Golf de Chantilly (Longeres course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1920s

Golf de Chantilly's Longeres course is an excellent foil to the club's renonwed Vineuil layout - a true “aristocrat” of French golf and widely regarded as one of the country's finest layouts. Located just over a kilometre from the sumptuous Château de Chantilly, the two courses enjoy a mix of open parkland and tree-lined holes, laid out on gently undulating terrain, surrounded by the Forêt de Chantilly.

At this prestigious club, both courses benefit from excellent greenkeeping, which produces some of the best putting surfaces to be found anywhere around Paris. Like its sibling, the Longeres layout, which was largely designed by British architect Donald Steel, demands good tee-to-green course management if you want to avoid a plentiful array of bunkering. Also in keeping with the Vineuil, water hazards do not play any part in proceedings.

Here at Chantilly you can enjoy the special atmosphere of a wonderfully quiet woodland environment, on two excellent courses that blend open as well as tree-lined stretches. Immediately to the east is the Dolce Chantilly resort and golf course, but you'll not be aware of its presence through a thick band of trees and bushes.
