Social and environmental responsibility


The "Joyenval" experience is enhanced by the know-how and daily commitment of employees, most of whom have been with the Club for many years:

  • Manicured preparation of the courses and Club House surroundings throughout the year.
  • A warm welcome and personalized services in the pro-shop, locker rooms and restaurant.
  • An outstanding restaurant with the Chef and his team who propose a varied cuisine with seasonal produce flavored with aromatic herbs, vegetables, fruits, and honey, grown on our property for greener gastronomy (apples from our orchard, honey from our beehives...).

Combining experience and youth, teams evolve by integrating the requirements of a modern private club. The Joyenval golf course is particularly committed to promoting diversity in the recruitment of its employees. Apprenticeship contracts are a regular feature.


Substantial and consistent investment means we are able to offer members and their guests two courses in tip-top condition throughout the year.

The complete renewal of maintenance machinery, a multidisciplinary set-up of 20 junior green-keepers led by the head greenkeeper, as well as the renovation of the irrigation system for the 36 holes in the fall of 2020, have helped us to reach this objective. The greens, consistent and fast on both courses (a rare feature), offer a perfect roll and true putting surface whatever the season thanks to, among other things, ultra precise smooth Simplex mowing. Regular sanding keeps the surfaces firm and even.

A proactive ecological policy, the reasoned stewardship of water and various treatment products represent a daily concern coming under a global project of ecological progress coordinated with Alejandro Reyes, an expert in golf course agronomy and also consultant for the European Ryder Cup courses in 1998 and 2022. He is in charge of the maintenance strategies drawn up for both courses.

The 2,000 sprinklers, arranged in a triple line, target only the playing areas. Individually controlled, they provide high-precision watering, which is essential for quality and for controlling water consumption. This investment in the watering system, amounting to 2.5 million euros and delivered in October 2020, has cut water consumption by 36% and mains water consumption by 88% (comparison 2018-2021).

The lakes of the Marly and Retz courses are retention bays where rainwater is collected, thereby reducing the consumption of mains water.

Our investment in maintenance equipment has made it possible to increase the amount of mechanical work (aeration, sanding, etc.). Consequently, the use of herbicides on the fairways and driving range has been reduced by 88%, and by 56% for phytosanitary products (comparison 2018 with 2021).


The natural areas, including undergrowth, represent about 250 acres of our property and are cleared or mown once a year. These areas, together with the Rû de Buzot brook and the lakes, are home to numerous species of wildlife (geese, ducks, herons, pheasants, deer…).

These spaces spread around our site, are all privileged areas and feature a very wide variety of plants and trees. Entomofauna is also well preserved, as evidenced by the flights of swallows and other rodent and insect hunters.

The orchard located behind the green on the 3rd hole of the Retz course, so typical of Chambourcy, is home to several beehives. Bees are a major indicator of the quality of natural areas and provide top quality honey for members, free of any chemical pollution.

The Club is fully in step with the very active policy conducted by the French Golf Federation, and has begun a census of this heritage in order to adapt maintenance work to ensure optimal preservation.
