Hole 14 looks like a painting by Kincade or Sergon

Outstanding work Frank. The course was on my must play before the restoration. It's jumped up the list big time now! Obviously, the bunkers are visually stunning. The tree removal opens the course up and makes it feel more roomy. I bet this has helped dry the course out as well. Was that big sand dune to the right of 11 tee always there or was that you adding it in?
Top class work! Les Pins was one of my favorite courses before the restoration already, so it seems I have no place to elevate it to now One or two more trees need to go on the right side of #17, so the contours can be used to run the ball onto the green. I absolutely love the sandy blowouts, it's a coastal pine forest after all.Ulrich
Gents,Aesthetically outstanding but in terms of further tree removal and fairway lines, would you not like to be able to open the course up still further?
Frank and Patrice,The course looks fantastic, well done. Was there any work done to the greens? After playing a few Simpson courses around Paris last summer, I really am interested in seeing more of his courses. Do the greens possess bold contouring? I really like the look of how the green seemed to really interact with the bunkering in the old photo. It does seem as thought there are some areas that still could use some tree removal. I guess it is tough to take too many at once as it may be a bit of a shock to some of their members. Thanks for the great post. I was looking to play there this fall, is it already open for play?
