Laid out within a beautiful wooded estate in the northwest suburbs of Paris, the course at Golf du Château de la Chouette is a new millennium offering from Robert Trent Jones Junior which is routed around several substantial water features.
Set out as two returning nines, this hilly course measures 6,116 metres from the back tees, with par set at 72. Feature holes include the par three 7th, played over a lake to a shallow green on the other side, and the left doglegged 16th, where the approach shot has to carry more water in front of the green.
The Peugeot Golf Guide describes the course as follows in this edited extract:
“The site is magnificent with rolling valleys in a large park with old and impressive trees. The layout is not that easy with water hazards galore, but while beginners might be frightened off, the better players will quickly come to terms with difficulties that look much worse than they actually are.”
