Where2Golf says: 

Golf de la Boulie (La Vallée course): Golf de la Boulie is part of the Racing Club de France (RCF), one of the biggest sporting clubs in France. No surprise therefore that it enjoys all the trappings of a top-class golf venue. The clubhouse and general facilities are excellent, and the two 18-hole courses (plus a nine-holer) are really worth a visit.


Both La Boulie's tree-lined courses are routed over pleasantly undulating terrain. There are a few climbs to make, but nothing too strenuous. Located close to Versailles in the suburbs of Paris, if you want a break from all that exhaustive sightseeing, then there's no better solution than a day at La Boulie - a round on each course and an excellent lunch in between.

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.

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.
