Architect

Fred Hawtree

The ancient clubhouse at Saint-Nom-la-Breteche was once part of a farm that grew the flowers and edible plants consumed at the Versailles palace, a few miles away; the nobles and royals also used the surrounding grounds as a hunting preserve. Long neglected, the grounds were sown with two golf courses in the Fifties. Fred Hawtree oversaw the work, and within no time the club began to attract top championships. Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer took the Canada Cup at Saint Nom in 1963, and Palmer later returned repeatedly to compete with other leading players for the Lancôme Trophy. Of the two courses at Saint Nom, the Rouge is the better, though both courses tend to be used when a competition brings large crowds to the club. Despite Saint Nom's high profile, maintenance has suffered in the past few years, and both the Rouge and the Bleu require some serious refurbishment.
