The 2018 Ryder Cup will be held at “Le Golf National”, an exclusive golf club near Versailles, just outside Paris. Play will be on the Albatros Course, which has also hosted the French Open since 1991. The extensive Albatros Course is perfect for the Ryder Cup and its many spectators, with its large number of natural grandstands. And the course is very demanding to play on.
It has the character of a links course, as well as corresponding bunkers and undulating fairways. This and the slick greens require extraordinary precision. The four final holes, on which victory is usually decided in matchplay are spectacular. There are water obstacles on all four holes, which provoke dramatic match situations.
