Where2Golf says: 

Golf du Stade Francais Courson (Vert-Lilas course): 36 excellent holes of golf await the visitor to Golf de Courson, also known as Stade Francais. The Vert / Lilas combination (versus the Noir / Orange) is perhaps the best, but only just. The course is relatively open and modern, but with lots of interest - rather links like in many parts. The punishing rough is allowed to creep quite close to the fairways, which are often pretty tight, so accuracy from the tee is the first thing to concentrate on. Next priority is to stay out of the excellent bunkering (lots of grass and sand bunkers) and avoid the water, which appears from time to time. Trust the yardages on the par-3’s, otherwise its easy to underclub. The proximity of the Orly airport flightpath does not spoil the essential peacefulness and tranquility of this excellent golfing venue.

Did you know?

With movie star good looks (he once appeared in television commercials as the "Marlboro Man"), American course architect Robert von Hagge (1927-2010) developed his design skills under the tutelage of Dick Wilson, one of the United States' foremost golf course architects. Von Hagge left the Dick Wilson Company in 1963, setting-up his own company (Von Hagge), and at the same time changing his name to Robert von Hagge (he was originally born Robert Bernhardt Hagge).

von Hagge's portfolio includes several European projects, with well-known layouts in France, Italy and Spain. His design work in France includes some of the country's most notable modern courses, not least Les Bordes (1987); Seignosse (1989); Kempferhof (1990); Golf National (1990, both courses, with Hubert Chesneau); Courson (1991, both courses) and Royal Mougins (1993).
