This is the second part about my recent adventures playing golf and hanging out in France for two weeks earlier this month. For part 1 of this series, go here — which is, of course, highly recommended! Like what you see? Check out and follow on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat…what am I missing?

After the quick jaunt in Normandy, we arrived in Paris. Oui! Who doesn’t love Paris? Oui! I mean, no! I’ve been a couple of times, but I don’t think I’d been in almost a decade, so it was definitely long overdue, not to mention it was my golfing buddy-in-crime Patrick Koenig’s first trip. Though we only had one (and a half) free evening(s),  and I made the most of it and hit up a couple of the main tourist spots, where we dressed like cat burglars and performed impressive stretch routines and high-kicked our way throughout the city.

We traveled from Normandy to the Paris area to experience Golf de Saint-Cloud, where we battled the elements (again) — sleet, rain, sun, hail, snow, wind, etc. — with nine holes (plus three-five more). There are two 18-hole tracks, the Green Course, designed by some architect named Harry Colt, and the Yellow Course.

With the Ryder Cup headed to France in 2018, it seemed not only logical but practical to conduct a reconnaissance trip to play some of the country’s finest golf courses before the year end.

A couple of months ago, when I was contacted by Olivier from Private Golf Key, a Paris-based travel, golf and lifestyle company, about the potential journey to Normandy and Paris, along with Cannes, the host city for the 2017 International Golf Travel Market (it’s like the PGA Show, but for golf tourism), I felt like it would be a disservice to turn down such an opportunity, especially since interest will be piqued with Le Golf National hosting the always much-anticipated biennial matches between the premier golfers in Europe and the U.S.
