From 2022, the Open National Dame will no longer take place in the Médoc but on the Diane Barrière course at the Golf Barrière Deauville. The 32nd edition of the Open de France Dame will be played from September 15 to 17, 2022, a tournament still sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour.

After having traveled between the golf courses of Fourqueux, Arras, the Paris International Golf Club or more recently in Chantaco and the Médoc, the French Open settles for the first time in Normandy.

The Golf Barrière de Deauville was created in 1929 and designed by the British architect Tom Simpson, who also designed, among others, courses such as Fontainebleau or Chiberta. The tournament will be played on the Diane Barrière course, a par 71 of 5968 meters.

We all remember this last edition of the Lacoste Ladies Open de France at the Golf du Médoc with this superb putt by Céline Boutier on the 18th to snatch the victory. The French had shone during this last edition in addition to the victory of Céline Boutier: Anais Meysonnier and Pauline Roussin-Bouchard had finished third in this event.

We hope that this change of environment will offer good battles and good weeks of golf for the next three editions of this Lacoste Ladies Open de France.
