The largest event of the golf season in France, the Alstom Open de France is one of the most important competitions in the European circuit.
The most important event of the golfing season in France, the Open de France is above all one of the most important stages of the European golf circuit.
The French Open has been part of the European circuit since its creation. But above all, its status as the oldest national open in continental Europe (it was first played in 1906), its illustrious record, its exceptional course and its substantial prize money of three million euros make it one of the biggest events of the year.
Under the leadership of President Pierre Deschamps, the "Grand Omnium Championship" was organised for the first time on 30 June and 1 July 1906 on the La Boulie course, inaugurated four years earlier. Inspired by the British Open, its prestigious predecessor created in 1860, the tournament was subtitled "Open Championship of France". The event has been a great success ever since!
Held on the La Boulie course from 1906 to 1912, the tournament then moved to different courses before joining le Golf National in 1991 where it has since been held on the Albatros course.
The Open Golf Tournament is played over four 18-hole rounds on a tough and demanding course with undulating terrain, water hazards and bunkers. The world's greatest players gather every year for three days on the Albatros course at the Golf National**.
From Thursday 21 to Sunday 24 September 2023.
