    I think it was played on 36 holes (to confirmed)
  4. French Amateur Championship 1904-1908

    Thanks for your answers I started with the french federation, but they have nothing at all about these events. I used old newspapers through "archives internet sites", it was enough after 1919, but iI have found notihng before 1914. At this time golf was not very popular in France. The French International Amateur Championship was palyed mainly by british players, it is the reasonwhile, it is possible to find results in british newspapers. It is the way used by "french historian of golf". But it is difficult for me to fond alone this information, it is the reasonwhile I need your help. I Have already found the winners and runner up, see below 1904 La Boulie H-G Beeche 9 et 7 J. Owerbury 1905 La Boulie A. H Grosfield 7 et 5 Sir Edgar Vinvent 1906 La Boulie R.G Graham 11 et 10 C. H Gray 1907 La Boulie S. J Chesterton 9 et 7 R. G Graham 1908 La Boulie W. G Pringle 3 et 1 G. Allis I'am waiting for new interesting answers. Regards
