The Ryder Cup has become one of the world’s greatest sporting events. Every two years, 24 of the best players from Europe and the United States go head-to-head in match play competition.

Drama, tension, incredible golf, camaraderie and sportsmanship are served in equal measure, captivating an audience of millions around the world. It’s an event that transcends sport, yet remains true to the spirit of its founder, Samuel Ryder.

Le Golf National Location

Le Golf National is located 20 miles west of Paris and only a 15 minute drive from the city of Versailles, home to the stunning Palace of Versailles.

Slots & Parking

Many airports require airport slots during major sporting events. As these are high traffic airports, there is a high demand for services such as slots.

We recommend that you book your flight early in order to secure the slot you require. 

Airport parking is always in high demand during major sporting events such a Ryder Cup the peak summer season. Your aircraft may have to reposition to another airport close by in case it can’t remain on the ground.

This will add to the cost of your charter flight, which is preferred to book your aircraft early. Aircraft parking is on a first-come, first-served basis.
