Golf De Chantilly Longeres Course
During the late 1980’s Golf de Chantilly decided to re-establish the second course and commissioned Englishman Donald Steele to build nine new holes on additional land. Curiously they then opted to exchange three of his holes with the final three from Simpson’s Vineuil Course to allow the new layout to return twice to the clubhouse. This was seen as preferable to an out and back routing but seems a strange decision as the flat Steele holes are a poor substitute to the superb Simpson originals, which occupy beautifully undulating ground and formed part of an exceptional six-hole finishing stretch.
Aside from losing these three closing holes, the Vineuil Course has retained its original character and when used as a tournament venue it is returned to its former configuration and remains one of Europe’s best Championship layouts. Holes are generally set well back from the surrounding forest and routed across a gently undulating pasture with attractive fairways lined by waving fescues. The greens here are quite large and the slopes softer than on other Simpson courses, aside from highly contoured gems such as 2, 8, 13 and 16. The bunkering is excellent and the shapes remain mostly as rugged and punishing as first conceived. Many of the longer holes feature classical cross-bunkers that are among the most formidable Simpson ever built, thankfully the recent shifting of a number of back tees has brought most of these traps back into play for the strong golfers.
The course starts with a succession of fine holes over softly moving ground and gradually builds through an open middle section to a thrilling climax played through a deep valley and across a hungry ravine. Highlights include the attractive par threes, cavernous fairway bunkering at the 7th, 8th, 12th and 13th and a trio of tremendous holes from the 16th, which were originally a prelude to the closing holes but now form a fabulous finishing stretch in their own right.
