Tee off on a luxury stay in France for Ryder Cup Paris 2018
The Ryder Cup, one of Golf’s most important tournaments, is set to be played at Le Golf National from September 25th - 30th in 2018. The biennial competition brings together some the best players from Europe and the USA for a thrilling weekend of golf. With its origins in a 1921 match held at the famous Scottish golf course, Gleneagles, the modern version of the tournament sees a team of 12 players from Europe and 12 players from the US facing off against each other over the course of 28 games of golf.
