Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge: Tournament Guide

The Road to Mallorca returns to Golf PGA France du Vaudreuil for the second of back-to-back events in France, as the Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge takes place from June 27-30. Here's everything you need to know for the week ahead.

An Historic Venue

Le Vaudreuil 1

Situated on the banks of the River Seine, Golf PGA France du Vaudreuil is a par 72 parkland course measuring just under 7,000 yards featuring holes carved into tree-lined fairways and around natural water features.

The venue has hosted golf since the 1960s and since then has expanded to include a dedicated Academy offering high-performance training to young players across Europe.

The golf estate also traces the history of Le Vaudreuil, with information on each tee box that tells the story of the local area from the Bronze Age and the Vikings to the construction of the course in the modern era. Further history can be seen in the club house, which is a barn from the 17th century that was taken apart brick by brick to be reassembled on the estate.

Past Champion Pedigree

2024 marks the 11th edition of the Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge, with several previous winners going on to have further success on the DP World Tour.

2014 Le Vaudreuil Challenge winner Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston became a DP World Tour winner within two years at the 2016 Open de España, while 2015 champion Ryan Fox has gone on to become a perennial winner and currently holds four DP World Tour titles.

2016 champion Alexander Bjork took home victory in the Volvo China Open in 2018 and was joined in the winner’s circle that year by 2017 champion Aaron Rai, after his victory at the 2018 Honma Hong Kong Open.

2018’s tournament saw history being made, when winner Richard McEvoy became the first player to win on the Challenge Tour and the European Tour in successive weeks after he won his maiden title on golf’s Global Tour – the Porsche European Open – the week after his victory in France.

The Field

As well as helping to produce them, Golf PGA France du Vaudreuil has also proven to be a venue where DP World Tour winners thrive, as recent years have seen five-time DP World Tour winners Marcel Siem of Germany and South African Darren Fichardt secure victory.

This week’s field will include several players who also fall into this category, including five-time DP World Tour winner Alex Levy, who is playing on home soil this week, four-time winners David Horsey of England and Scot Marc Warren, as well as Englishman Chris Wood, who has won three DP World Tour titles.

Joining them in the field this week is John Parry, who secured his second victory on the 2024 Road to Mallorca at the Blot Open de Bretagne last week. The Englishman will now set his sights on a third win of the season that would see him earn automatic promotion to the DP World Tour for the rest of this season and for the 2025 season.
