Golf Ryder Cup
25 September - 30 September 2018
Every two years, 24 of the best golf players from Europe and the United States go head-to-head in one of the world’s greatest and most captivating sporting events.
The Ryder Cup, named for its founder, Samuel Ryder, is synonymous with drama, tension, incredible golf, camaraderie and sportsmanship. In 2018, the Ryder Cup returns to European soil and will be hosted on the Albatros Course at Le Golf National in Paris, France, from 25 to 30 September 2018.
Since 1979, Europe has won the Ryder Cup ten times with eight American wins over this period. Besides players from the United Kingdom, the European team has included golfers from Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden. The Ryder Cup and its counterpart, the Presidents Cup, are considered exceptions within the world of professional golf as the players compete for the honour of the win alone, and receive no prize money.
The 2018 Ryder Cup will once again see the top golf players from Europe and the United States compete for the prestigious title.

The Ryder Cup is a very popular event. Hotels and tickets sell out fast, so book way in advance to avoid disappointment. The Ryder Cup is a team event, much different from a traditional golf tournament where it is every man for himself. Dress in colours that support your player and cheer loud for great shots.
France's capital is a global centre for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. Besides its famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Notre-Dame cathedral, the city is known for its outdoor cafes, which will give you plenty of opportunities to enjoy casual dining and people-watching. Paris' fine-dining restaurants, bistros, markets and patisseries reflect other aspects of France's famed culinary heritage. Discover the designer boutiques along the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. Visit the famed Louvre museum, which houses Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” or the Musée d’Orsay, which showcases works by Degas, Monet and Renoir. Explore the historically bohemian neighbourhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés or Montmartre, home to Sacré-Coeur Basilica and sweeping hilltop views. For a bustling nightlife scene, head to Marais where nightclubs sit among restored 17th-century mansions.
