FEUCHEROLLES WHERE IS IT? WHAT’S IT LIKE?
19 miles west of Paris.
A US-designed course (JM Poellot, 1992) of many ups and downs, five lakes and never a dull hole, in the pleasant country setting of a vast bowl overlooked by church spires and villas. An affordable, challenging and varied round at a friendly, modern club with a good restaurant that welcomes visitors all week long.
The fun of the game includes lake carries, beach bunkers, screens of trees, blind drives over brows, complex greens and an inviting downhill par-five water hole to bring each nine to a close.
Don’t complain if you are mixed in to a five-hour fourball – concede a few putts and your reward may be the offer of a lift to the station afterwards.
