Geographical context


Golf de l'Isle Adam is located in the far north of the Ile de France region, at the confluence of the Parc Régional (PNR) du Vexin français and the PNR Oise Pays de France.

This 140-hectare golf course is set in a hilly, forested, slightly urbanized landscape. It is surrounded by two important wooded areas, part of which is integrated into the course. To the west, it borders the Isle Adam national forest. To the east and north, it is surrounded by farmland and residential hamlets. To the south, it is bordered by farmland and the freeway.

Tree cover is well established, representing a canopy index of around 55%.

In addition, several basins are fed by a spring and are connected from south to north. The total water surface area is thus around 21800 m3.


In this way, the Isle Adam golf course is a positive factor in the regional challenges of preserving and restoring ecological continuity, as well as blue continuity, thanks to its streams, ponds and wetlands.


The Golf de l'Isle Adam is home to wetlands of vital importance to local biodiversity. Fed by watercourses, these 2-hectare stretches of water are a precious habitat for a multitude of animal and plant species.

A unique environment:

  • The diversity of wetland types present on the site, from ponds to reedbeds, offers a variety of habitats suitable for a wide range of species.
  • Water quality, preserved by the absence of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, is essential for the reproduction and development of many aquatic species.

An essential ecological role:

  • Water filtration: Wetlands act as natural filters, trapping pollutants and sediments in the water.
  • Climate regulation: They help regulate the local climate by absorbing carbon and combating heat islands.
  • Flood prevention: By absorbing rainwater, wetlands reduce the risk of flooding in surrounding areas.

The meadows of the Golf de l'Isle Adam: a precious ecological asset

The Golf de l'Isle Adam is home to two distinct types of grassland: improved and reseeded meadows, and mown meadows. Both play an important role in the site's ecology and contribute to local biodiversity.

Improved and reseeded grasslands:

  • Covering around 42 hectares of the site, these meadows include greens, pre-greens, fairways, semi-roughs, practices and lawns.
  • They are maintained by regular sowing of grass species selected for their resistance to trampling and their ability to withstand varied climatic conditions.
  • They play an important role in infiltrating water and reducing runoff, helping to prevent flooding and protect water resources.

Mown meadows:
