Chantilly: the cream of French golf

Together with the luxurious Dolce Chantilly Hotel**** and the local Golf Clubs we are proud once again to offer you our hugely popular Chantilly Summer Special. This unique offer enables golfers looking for something special the chance to travel to the heart of France, stay in a superbly appointed, up-to-date four-star hotel and play a selection of the world-class courses to be found just to the North of Paris - all at an amazing price while Club members are away at the seaside!

The Chantilly area

Chantilly and the surrounding region 'Ile-de-France' is not overrun by tourists and remains a real French enclave - here one feels in the very heart of France.

Nearby, the walled town of Senlis with its narrow cobbled lanes is perfect for an afternoon strolling, sightseeing and shopping. Paris is only 25kms away and easily reached for the day on the fast trains from Chantilly that will whisk you into town and onto the Metro in half-an-hour.

The Dolce Chantilly Hotel****

Just over two hours from Calais on the fast French motorways; the Dolce hotel sits beside its own 18-hole course, just behind the peaceful town of Chantilly with all of its ancient charms. The hotel is superbly placed for golfers to enjoy all of the wonderful courses in the area, plus the delights of the town with its classical Château and formal gardens.  Plus it's not too far for a night out in Paris - oooh la la!

 

The Dolce hotel offers all the facilities that you could wish for: indoor and outdoor pools, a choice of restaurants: the Etoile under the conservatory or the gourmet Carmontelle.

The ground floor has a welcoming open plan bar in the spacious foyer. Plus downstairs you will find the indoor pool, sauna, fitness room and jacuzzi. Outside there are tennis courts, extensive golf practice facilities - including a driving lake!

To guard against the summertime warmth, the hotels offers fully air conditioned rooms, plus there is always the outdoor pool to cool off in.

Your choice of exceptional golf courses

Chantilly is a French golfing paradise - overshadowing nearly every other corner of France with its quality and quantity of courses.  July and August are undoubtedly the best months for playing golf in the historic heart of France. The weather is at its finest and all the Parisian families are away at the seaside - leaving the city’s classy fairways deserted.  Our Chantilly Summer Special includes one round at the Foret de Chantilly course plus any other two from:

Apremont Golf ClubApremont  Architect: J. Jacobs.  18 holes: 6,436m: par 72.

Resolutely holds its position in John Jacobs’ personal top ten. Carved through established woodland that boasts a huge variety of trees and colours: especially pretty in the Autumn.  A fair test of golf with many dog-legs to plot your way around.  Superb Clubhouse facilities, including Japanese baths and saunas.

Club du Lys golf course International Club du Lys

Les ChEnes   Architect: T. Simpson.  18 holes: 6,022m: par 71.
Lovely parkland course, similar to Chantilly Vineuil in many ways (same course architect).  Les Chenes (the Oaks) winds its way through the thick forest surrounding the Clubhouse with many dog-legs demanding distance control from the Tee.  A little on the short side for some perhaps but easily walked so a 36-hole day here with lunch in the superb Clubhouse makes for a wonderful golfing day out.

Les Bouleaux 18 holes.
A shorter, tighter course, with limited bunkering and intertwined amongst Les Chenes.  Ideal for walking off the undoubtedly fine lunch you will have enjoyed!

Chateau de Raray golf course ChAteau de Raray  Architect: P. Léglise.  18 holes: 6,455m: par 72.

Very enjoyable woodland layout, through thick forest (Woburnesque some might say) in the grounds of a fine Chateau. Easy walking with just a few gentle slopes and hummocks shaping the holes. Scene of the Montgomery v Furyk match and famed also for its role as the setting for the original 1930's black & white film 'Beauty and the Beast'.

Isle Adam  Architect: R. Fream  18 holes: 6,188m: par 72.

A little further away from Chantilly, but under an hour's drive, Isle Adam is a well-established golf club that spreads over some interesting, heavily wooded terrain.  Most of the course is on flattish land alongside the river, which comes into play here and there.  There are also two hillier sections which are more strenuous going, but give rise to beautiful looking tee-shots looking down onto tree-lined Fairways.

Mont Griffon Golf ClubMont-Griffon   Architect: T. Huau. 18 + 9 holes: 5,905m: par 72.

A modern layout in a more US style with slick greens and plenty of water hazards.  Sitting up high on a plateau to the South of Chantilly the course looks out over the forests of Chantilly. The complex also has a formidable 9-hole course, short course, vast range and golf academy.

Dolce Chantilly golf course Foret de Chantilly   Architect: T. Nelson (1993).  18 holes: 6,209m: par 72.

A course that has improved well over the years with the trees and shrubs that were planted to add shape to the open flat land now starting to fill-out.  However, many holes are still open to "self-expression" with the driver and the Greens are very good making the Dolce course an ideal venue to start your week with a gentle round upon arrival at the hotel.

And at a supplement of £40 why not play France's finest?

Chantilly Golf Club Chantilly - Vineuil  Architect: T. Simpson (1903).  18 holes: 6,396m: par 71.

Regularly voted the best course in France.  Vineuil has hardly changed since it was crafted by the canny Tom Simpson, who added little and took nothing away from this lovely land.  Natural woodland golf with a graceful Clubhouse that has let time slip by unnoticed.  Quite simply, a must.
N.B.  Only one buggy available and you will need a doctor's note to use it.

Chantilly Golf Club Chantilly - LongEres  Architect: D. Steel. 18 holes: 6,338m: par 72.

The other course at Chantilly Golf Club that complements its senior sibling appropriately.  Longères is a very good test in its own right, (maybe even tougher than Vineuil?) over very similar terrain and Donald Steel made a good fist of designing it in keeping with the famous Vineuil (thankfully!).
