Golf Holidays in France

Ryder Cup

The 42nd Ryder Cup Matches will be held in France from 28–30 September 2018 at the Albatros Course of Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, a suburb southwest of Paris.

It will be the second Ryder Cup to be held in Continental Europe, after the 1997 contest, which was held in Spain. The United States is the defending champion, but has lost the last five matches in Europe, having last won there in 1993.

The Ryder Cup is a match play event, with each match worth one point. The competition format will be as follows:

Day 1 (Friday) – 4 foursome (alternate shot) matches and 4 fourball (better ball) matches
Day 2 (Saturday) – 4 foursome matches and 4 fourball matches
Day 3 (Sunday) – 12 singles matches
On the first two days there will be 4 fourball matches in the morning and 4 foursome matches in the afternoon.

With a total of 28 points available, 14½ points are required to win the Cup, and 14 points are required for the defending champion, the United States, to retain the Cup. All matches are played to a maximum of 18 holes.

The Ryder Cup heads to Paris as Le Golf National hosts the 42nd edition of the world’s greatest match play event from 28-30 September 2018.

Situated around 20 miles south west of Paris, around a 2½ drive from our arrival ports of Le Havre and Caen, this spectacular course is one of the best in the world for spectators and is consistently ranked in Europe’s top 10 courses.
