Old greens: 1,2,3,4,9,11,12,16,& 18, high % of meadow grass low % of bent grass
New Greens: 5,6 (5 years old),7 (2 years old), 10 & 17 (2 years old), 13 & 14 (1 year old), high % of bent grass

Quite wide but tree-lined. The course is playing short due to no rain for over 1 month. Fairways are cut at 11mm.

Semirough: 40mm
Rough: 65mm
Secondary Rough: 90mm
Due to the spell without rain the rough is not as punishing as it normally is as the irrigation system does not reach the rough areas.

Greens are only cut once a day due to the heavy slopes on greens 8 & 15.

Course Details
Saint-Nom-La-Breteche is a tree lined course where water hazards come into play on holes 5,7,9 and 18, which is the feature hole, a par 3 of 210 with bunkers on the left and a water hazard next to the green on the right.

Course Layout
Due to the long dry period the old constructed greens are as firm as they have ever been. However, the weather forecast is for some showery rain late Wednesday, early Thursday, then dry and sunny but cold.
