Golf Club de Strasbourg was founded in 1935, when an 18-hole layout was brought into play. In the 1970s, the popularity of the club grew to such an extent that a decision was made to add a third nine, designed by Donald Harradine, extending the golf provision to a 27-hole complex.
The Jaune nine (3,213 metres, par 37) and Rouge nine (2,885 metres, par 36) form the 18-hole layout of first choice at Strasbourg but the Blanc nine (2,949 metres, par 35) shouldn’t be dismissed too easily, especially as the water-laden 4th and 5th on that loop are two of the best holes on the property.
The Peugeot Golf Guide describes the course as follows in this edited extract:
“The hardest holes are grouped at the start of the Jaune but the full layout is anything but intimidating, and while this classic set-up hardly has the same visual or technical excitement of modern courses, even the best players will find themselves in trouble if they don’t keep it straight.”
