Golf holidays in Versailles

Versailles, on the ounskirts of Paris, is world famous for its château and formal gardens: an iconic vision of French pomp and circumstance at its height under the reign of Louis XIV - the Sun King.  All of this regal splendour is beautifully preserved today and open for visiting: a must during any holiday to Versailles or Paris - even a golfing holiday!

Aside from all the culture, Versailles has a lot to offer golfers with a plethora of high-class golf courses in the surrounding countryside west of Paris.  And with so many tourists in town it makes a lively base for a French golf holiday with its many bars and restaurants of all persuasions.  Plus the bright lights of Paris are just down the boulevard...

Versailles golf courses

These days Le Golf National is perhaps the best-known golf course close to Versailles; it was built as the home course for the French Open and has now won the right to host the Ryder Cup in 2018.  Spanish, Germans and Scandinavians might point out that only one singles match has ever been played by a French golfer in the Ryder Cup (answers on a postcard please..).

More traditional golf exists too in the shape of the traditional St. Germain Golf Club an absolute delight; plus the region's other mature golf club Fourqueux

Other golf courses around Versailles are more modern in flavour with the 36 holes at Stade Francais and the 18 holes at Golf Parc Nantilly being amongst the most striking you will see anywhere.  The supporting golfing cast is strong too with pleasant parkland golf courses at Feucherolles, Les Yvelines and Château de Maintenon.

Getting to Versailles by car

For many living in the southeast of the UK, the easiest way to get to your golfing holiday in Versailles will be via the Eurotunnel or P&O ferries to Calais.  From here it is about a three-hour drive to Versailles, skirting around Paris to the West.  Alternatively, ferries to Le Havre or Caen allow you to access the swift autoroute connections to the capital (in fact many Parisians commute from Rouen).

There are some very good golf courses on the way down too; so consider breaking your journey with a game of golf (or a even a night's stopover) en-route at: Belle Dune, Rebetz or up on the coast in Normandy.

Flying to Versailles

If you prefer to fly, then the closest airport is Charles de Gaulle to the North of Paris, although Orly to the South of Paris is not much further to drive if flights are more convenient for you?

There are a huge number of flights every day into Charles de Gaulle and Orly; we can advise on the best schedules and airfares for your golf holiday in Versailles.  Then include them in your holiday, or you can book them yourselves if you prefer.
