The Paris International Golf Club was opened in 1991 and is the only course in France designed by the legendary golf course architect Jack Nicklaus. The 18-hole Championship course is located just north of Paris city centre next to the Montmorency Forest and has twice played host to the French Ladies Open. The course is laid out in two loops of nine holes that start and finish near the clubhouse. The course winds its way over hilly terrain and through one-hundred-year-old trees. Water is present on half of the holes and especially tests the skill of the golfer on the downhill par 5, 18th that plays to an island green. Paris International is suitable for golfers of all skill levels and will provide an interesting and enjoyable round. Facilities in the clubhouse are superb and include a restaurant, bar, sauna and Jacuzzi.
