For golf fans, nothing can match the thrill of watching a Ryder Cup live – the atmosphere, comradery and competitiveness is unrivalled by any other golf event and really is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The unforgettable drama of The 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine was of the highest order and you can expect much of the same for The 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris. The outstanding, yet brutal Golf National golf course is purpose made for match-play golf with its closing holes littered with water hazards…expect numerous casualties.

Following on from the disappointing 2016 Ryder Cup campaign at Hazeltine, Team Europe will be more motivated than ever to get revenge in front of the home crowd. Europe have lost just once on home soil since 1985, so despite the recent defeat, they’ll be brimming with confidence in the build up to Le Golf National. And with multiple major winners likely to be in the ranks – Garcia, Rose, McIlroy – and some exciting young prospects – Pieters and Rahm – spirits of Team Europe’s captain, Thomas Bjorn, are likely to be high!
Located on the outskirts of Paris in Versailles, Le Golf National’s l’Albatros course is a layout known all too well by members of the European Tour. Having previously hosted 24 French Opens and being described by Colin Montgomerie as "one of the most demanding courses in Europe", Golf National already has some serious pedigree. With its fantastic combination of traditional links holes, modern target golf features, and many greens surrounded by water, this is a very difficult track which will require both Ryder Cup teams to be on top of their game.
There are a host of first-class courses around France’s capital city, and Golfbreaks has access to them all. Why not arrive early or stay on for a few days after the Ryder Cup, take in all Paris has to offer and play some of the best courses in the world, our top three suggestions are:
- Les Bordes – 4th in Continental Europe*
- Golf de Chantilly Vineuil – 5th in Continental Europe*
- Golf de Fontainebleau – 6th in Continental Europe*
