The Golf D’ Augerville
This is a beautiful 18 hole golf course that since its establishment has positioned itself as the most beautiful golf course in France. It was created by Olivia Dongradi, an architect, in 1995. This golf course swiftly weaves its way through some of the most beautiful woodland and its immaculate playing surface complements the vegetation.
Its 6813 yards par 72 layout is a mixture of rolling landscape with different elevations. This golf course creates a unique challenge even for the best golfers in the world and this is even what makes it very attractive. There are lots of water features and abundant wildlife. The l’Essonne River meanders through the golf course and contributes to the dramatic finishing hole right in front of the magnigficant Chateau.
Golf De Fontainebleau
This golf course was inaugurated in 1909 and is arguably one of the oldest in the country. Originally, the course was created by Julien Chantepie and later in 1920 it was redesigned by Tom Simpson and modified by Fred Hawtree. It is located in the serene Fontainebleau forest close to the town on some ancient imperial hunting grounds.
Its fairways are narrow and lined with a number of different tree species including the wild cherry, centenary oak, pines, and silver birch. It is one of the well-equipped golf courses with about 103 fine sand bankers, dense outcrops of brooms, wonderful jennets, ferns and lilacs. The combination of all this makes the course difficult, yet attractive. Depending on the season when you tee off, you may enjoy scents of nature and a symphony of colors.
Thanks to its sandy ground, the course is softer and perfectly playable at any moment irrespective of the weather conditions.
