Roissy Golf Course
Sports and leisure base
A look at the components of this project covering 90 hectares which takes account of the environment, landscape, aesthetics and quality.
For the launch of the architect’s tender for the golf project, about a dozen proposals were received at Roissy town hall. Three teams were selected by the municipality on the basis of their professional references and their technical competences.
The company selected for the project is not a novice in the field! Golf Optimum, specialising in the design, construction and renovation of golf courses, has been behind many golf courses in France and overseas.
The future Roissy golf course – according to some one of the most beautiful in the sector! – will include:
an 18-hole course with ancillary equipment (practice range, putting green, chipping green)
a golf academy (lessons for all on a miniature 6-hole course)
a club house comprising a fitness space (hammam/ sauna, massages, etc.), a lounge/bar/restaurant/seminar space with terrace and sweeping view over the Vallée Verte, a seminar and meeting space, cloakroom, reception and a local caddy master.
a 250-space car park next to the range (enough for regular users and spectators at future competitions)
a golf maintenance and upkeep centre
a "sustainable development” spirit
In terms of the rational management of water and energy, Golf Optimum has already made good progress by using a maximum of local water resources, such as the canal overflow, for watering the golf course in order to avoid drawing water from the water table. Rainwater recovery basins are also included in the project. The municipality is working closely with the designers to favour the "sustainable development” of the site’s facilities in terms of energy management.
Opening planned in 2018
A golf course in Roissy: a project which has been long in the planning!
It was in the 1990s that a project for a golf course in Roissy saw the light of day in the frame of the review of the Ile-de-France Planning and Development programme, requested by the then Prime Minister, Michel Rocard. It was up to the municipality to find a way to preserve its natural spaces and avoid the lucrative projects which were being discussed at the time, such as the Val d'Oise Congress Centre to be installed in the middle of farmland! Local councillors formed a Semi-public Company (SEM) and presented several projects, including the golf course. It just goes to show that good ideas have a hard life.
Test your fitness with the fitness trail located right next to Roissy's hotels, in Parc de la Mairie. In total, there are about a dozen fitness devices (body-building, stretching, etc.).
