PRE-PLAY THE RYDER CUP 2018 VENUE AT LE GOLF NATIONAL
Travel offer for WLG member golfers and friends 25 – 28 May 2016
In the framework of the International Golf Week 2016 introducing the reconstructed, stadium-like Le Golf National Albatros Course, World of Leading Golf invites member golfers and friends of the association to participate in the great event.
The World of Leading Golf travel package will allow participants to enjoy three days and four nights packed with golf and entertainment. The renowned Le Golf National is the well-established home to the Alstom Open de France since 1991 and the second ever continental venue to host the tournament! WLG/IGW tour participants will be among the first to inaugurate the freshly renovated Ryder Cup course well ahead of the world best players.
The construction of the original Albatros Course was initiated by the French Golf Federation and designed by Hubert Chesneau. It opened in 1990. The diversity of shots embracing the challenges of a links course, target golf, water hazards and bunkers demand for a full set of clubs. The large and carefully placed greens offer both the long as well as the exacting put over the exciting terrain. The upgrading works in the face of the Ryder Cup in 2018 have seen a full renovation of both the drainage and irrigation systems, as well as the creation of a reservoir and renovation of the lakes banks. All bunkers have been restored and sand renewed. Two of the greens have been modified with more pin position options, and the huge bunker between hole 4&5 has given way to much smaller bunkers and mounts from where spectators will command a view on both teams.
Golfers booking the WLG/IGW tour will receive professional coaching and be guided through the whys and hows of the new Albatros. They will get to play the course three times as tournament participants starting, into their sportive challenges from the luxurious on-course Novotel Saint-Quentin Le Golf National. Further exclusive experiences include a dinner in Versaille and a dinner cruise on the Seine watching the breathtaking Paris sights in stylish art deco surroundings.
