Where2Golf says: 


[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.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
