Original 18-hole Longères course designed in the 1920s by Tom Simpson, when he also redesigned the original 9-hole Vineuil course (extending it from 9 to 18 holes). The Longères suffered badly during WW2, and most of it was abandoned after the war. In the 1980s English architect David Steel brought five original Longères holes back into play, together with 13 new holes which he designed.

Who's Who

Céline Boutier: with many successes as both an amateur and professional golfer, Boutier added a major championship title to her impressive résumé at this year’s Evian Championship.

Alex Cejka: buffeted by rain and high winds, especially on the high-scoring final day, Čejka prevailed over Pádraig Harrington in a playoff at Royal Porthcawl, to scoop the Senior Open Championship title.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
