Stayed at the hotel which is looking very tired and if not a little dirty.

Tried to eat in the 2018 Restaurant, a simple dish of steak and chips.

All I can say about this was that the first dish presented had steak that you wouldn’t feed a dog with and was left on the pass too long, so the dish was nearly warm and we sent it back. The second dish presented was equally as bad as the first, with no attempt at presentation, just a really poor experience, and clearly the chef is close to amateur.

Do NOT bother eating that it’s a complete waste of time.

Great friendly service....Group of eight of us had a weekend at this venue. Played both courses...in great condition...The Albatross was testing, but a great experience. Totally enjoyed by all. The staff in both the pro shop and the restaurant were great. Bedroom had all you would need. ...I lost a jumper somewhere....it was found and actually brought out to me on the course ...what service!.... Great all round experience

We played here in Winter and it was very windy and pouring with rain. This did not hold back from what was an unbelievable experience. The fairways were absolutely immaculate and the best I have played on, they were in superb condition. The course is long and quite a slog but we loved every minute of it. It helped that I played some of my best golf and made quite a few pars, the opening tee shot after watching the ryder cup was spine tingling (flushed it down the middle :D). Would highly recommend this to anyone, especially if you are European and want to recount some of the Ryder Cup glory!

The course is in excellent condition and top quality for playing. Mondays are cheaper to play ($75). If you don’t have a French license they will charge you for one ($56 for a year) or $21 until the end of the year, The green fee include a measly 20 balls and that day we had to hit off mats.
My gripe is that the personnel at the counter (Paul) is quite condescending and not very friendly. Maybe it is the French way.

Dear Sir, Thankyou for taking the time to leave your comments on Tripadvisor. Thankyou also for the compliments for the course and conditions. I have personally taken time to investigate the issue concerning the staff - and as you have formally identified our member of staff and he has been able to identify your party via the photos you have posted on this comment. Paul remembers clearly your exchanges at reception and in helping you to obtain the day best possible rate. We would like to sincerely apologize for the quality of your experience at reception that day and the length of our procedures to get you set up and ready to go play. The huge majority of the comments on here, and other consumer journalism platforms are overwhelmingly postive about the quality of our staff. Many of them are French - but also international. I personally take pride in leading my team to excellence and consistency in their ways. However, sometimes heavy procedures fail us and in this case it obviously did and we apologize without reserve once again. We will change our way of obtaining best guest rates at the desk following this issue. Please do contact me personally so we can take this matter further if you wish - paul-ian.armitage@golf-national.com As for the driving range - we do indeed offer 20 warm up balls (and push carts) and the warm up tee line is permanantly set up on synthetic grass (not mats). All guests wishing to practice more can do so by purchasing extra buckets according to their needs. Elsewhere on site (at the Oiselet academy centre - just to the right of the 17th hole of Albatros) we have a full academy with top tracers on mats or hitting off grass for full academy and practice services. The warm up area is just for the proximity with the first tee of Albatros and Eagle and not really aimed at being a training centre. We hope you will come back and visit us again. Kind regards, Paul Armitage General Manager Le Golf National

A bunch of us came here to play after watching the brilliant Ryder Cup, it chewed us up & spat us out. However it was absolutely great fun, a solitary birdie over two rounds barely counterbalanced the multiple splashes all round !

We took a birthday trip from the UK to Paris to play this stunning course just after the Ryder Cup.

The course was in great condition and every one of the holes was a great challenge! We loved every minute of our experience and were even allowed to see the Europe dressing room after our round!

If you're a keen golfer and don't mind losing a few balls, get yourself out here! The stay and play deal works perfectly!

Enjoyed a wonderful trip to Golf National last weekend.

Obviously the course is now famous as a Ryder Cup venue however what really made the trip memorable and enjoyable was the hospitality and friendly manner in which we were welcomed at Golf National.

We had a tee time delay due fog and Christophe and the team were incredibly flexible on our behalf and ensured we got to play a 2nd round and made our flight home.

To Christophe and all the superb ladies in the proshop un très grand merci.

This weekend we visited and played golf at this magnificent venue and having just hosted the Ryder Cup it was a real treat .
We were welcomed by Christoph on Thursday in the pro shop and even though the range was closed he invited us to use all the practice facilities on offer at the club and even walked us out to show us the areas and views of the course.
On Friday and Saturday we were looked after by Anniu and she was also first class . We explained because of a frost delay on Saturday, that we would be under pressure to meet our travel arrangements. Our tee time was adjusted to allow us to play first group !!!
People like these make an already great golf venue fantastic.
I noticed that a lot of complaints and poor reviews are about food or prices of golf .
In Ireland or England, you will struggle to find a welcome or a venue presented in such condition for the price .
It was also refreshing to see all types of golfers catered for and no rushing around the course .
Go and enjoy the welcome and the golf . The place is fantastic . The hotel is quirky but it’s just a place to sleep!!!!!
Thank you Anniu and Christoph and all at Le Golf National for a great experience.

Dear Maldives14, Many thanks for taking the time to evaluate us. We hope you will come and enjoy someday a round of golf here at Le Golf National. Thansk for the compliments and yes, you are right, locations of toilets couls have been better - we will certainly change that if we get another shot at running the Ryder Cup, and will improve for the next major events coming in 2022 - the world amateur team championships and 2024 - the Olympics. Very Kind regards, Paul Armitage GM
