Golf de Fontainebleau


4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   Golf de Fontainebleau Est. 1909

Where2Golf says: 

Golf de Fontainebleau: Tom Simpson created in the woodlands around Fontainebleau a most “English” layout which makes excellent use of the undulating and heavily wooded terraine. Some of the trees that line the “tightish” fairways are hundreds of years old, and a few of the really old ones are “labelled” accordingly - all in all they create a tranquil forested setting for a relatively tough test of your golfing skills. With one or two spectacularly elevated tee-boxes, and some rock strewn fairways, you will be in for a golfing treat just a mile or two from what was once Napolean’s military HQ.

Did you know?

Fontainebleau's Norman style clubhouse is decorated with tree frescoes painted by Paul Tavarnier (1852-1943), an artist much influenced by the Barbizon school. The School, which took its name from the village of Barbizon in the Forest of Fontainebleau, was initially influenced by the work of English artist John Constable. Artists like Théodore Rousseau, Jean-François Millet and Charles-François Daubigny led the School during its most active years between 1830 and 1870. The French landscape was a major theme of the Barbizon painters.
