Where2Golf says: 

Golf de Saint-Nom-la-Bretèche: Here in the western outskirts of Paris, with many fine golf courses as neighbours, the impressive Rouge and Bleu courses at Saint-Nom-la-Bretèche stand out as beacons of French golfing excellence. When melded together as an 18-hole composite layout, the Red and Blue courses have enjoyed a long and illustrious association with top level tournament golf, which dates back over a period of many years (see Did You Know section below). Both the Red course (comprising two nine-hole loops) and the Blue (an out-and-back design) were designed by Fred Hawtree, and both will give your game an excellent workout in a pleasantly undulating parkland environment. The courses are excellently maintained, with housing (large villas) set well back from the course and only to be found on the outer perimeter of this 36-hole venue. Occasional water hazards, most commonly found alongside some greens, combine with a plethora of stylish bunkering to provide the main strategic defences to the sometimes tightish and often tree-lined holes. The pleasantly undulating terrain creates many nicely elevated teeing grounds and occasional views across the surrounding wooded countryside; most of the time however you will be looking across to other parts of this quiet, natural and always attractive golf setting. The beautiful and ancient stone-built clubhouse, originally a farm worked by Cistercian monks, sits on the edge of the village of Saint-Nom-la-Breteche, which like the farm itself has a long and fascinating history.
