Golf du Stade Francais Courson (Noir-Orange course)

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1991

Golf du Stade Francais Courson (Noir-Orange course): The look and feel of the Noir / Orange combination is similar to the Vert / Lilas at Courson. The Noir / Orange is a tad shorter, and has a bit more water to be avoided, but its still a fine course and well worth playing.

The ever present rough which borders the fairways is carried along on earth mounds, which provide good definition to the holes. The trouble is generally clear to see, although there is a blind drive at the opening hole on the Orange. The ox-bow double-green at the 5th and 9th on the Noir is surely one of the longest in golf !

From many holes you will get a view of the rather varied collection of buildings that make up the clubhouse, rather than over the surroundings hills (as on the Vert /Lilas).

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).
