Bjørn and Furyk lead Captains Challenge at Le Golf National

October 19, 2017
The pair were joined by eight members of the French Golf Federation’s Elite Junior Squad – four boys and four girls – for the fun contest over L’Albatros course, which next year will host The Ryder Cup for the first time, becoming only the second venue in continental Europe to do so. The Captains’ Challenge was compered by Paul Armitage, Le Golf National’s General Manager, with European Captain Bjørn and United States Captain Furyk steering their respective teams of two mixed foursomes pairings through the five-hole challenge, which was played over the first hole and Le Golf National’s famous finishing stretch, the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th holes. Fittingly, the match was halved, with the challenge providing all eight juniors with an experience to remember on the course which will be the backdrop for 24 of the world’s leading players in 12 months’ time. Team Bjørn, represented by Mathilde Claisse and Dimitri Mary, Lilas Pinthier and Thomas Boulange, and Team Furyk, comprising Candice Mahe and Pierre Pineau, Evangeline Prevot and Clement Charmasson, were then presented with flags signed by both captains as a memento from the day. The Captains’ Challenge was watched by more than 750 local schoolchildren who were then able to hear Bjørn and Furyk pass on their expertise when the two captains hosted a clinic on the practice range. This group included pupils from the nearby Ecole Robert Desnos, in Guyancourt, who cycled to Le Golf National after earlier in the day receiving a visit from the two captains, who spent time in their classroom learning about the children’s work as part of the Mon Carnet de Golf educational programme. Bjørn said: “Today brought you back to your own childhood, to see all these kids excited about golf. It was a good reminder of where you came from. It’s been a brilliant day in the sense of seeing the excitement about the Ryder Cup in France. “We’re in a country where golf is not the biggest sport and The Ryder Cup doesn’t have a history, so to bring it here and see the schools getting involved, and to watch these fantastic young players in the Challenge gives you a few goose bumps. You can feel from them that they are so excited about The Ryder Cup. “I had some good chats on the golf course with Jim and also with the kids, trying to talk to them about playing the game. They are extremely talented players and it looks like they have a great future ahead of them in the game. One comment to a kid like that can make them because we’ve all had it at some stage in our careers, that one guy who says something that stays with you for the rest of your life. Hopefully we passed on one or two things today that will stick with them and make them into great players.” Furyk said: “We had a great visit this morning to a local school, and it was then great to

Le Golf National to host 2024 Olympic Golf competition

September 21, 2017
Reintroduced as a discipline at last year’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, golf will be part of the schedule for the Summer Games held in Tokyo, Japan in 2020 and, following confirmation earlier this month, in Paris, France four years later. Great Britain and Ireland’s Justin Rose became the first men’s gold medal winner of the event since 1904, with 2016 Race to Dubai winner and Open Champion Henrik Stenson, from Sweden, winning the silver medal. No stranger to hosting world-class golf, Le Golf National, a European Tour Destination, has been the venue of the HNA Open de France on 21 occasions, as well as the European Senior Tour’s Paris Legends Championship. The executive board of the International Olympic Committee recommended golf, along with rugby sevens, to be included in the program for the 2024 Games, and the decision, taken by IOC members at the IOC session in Lima, ratifies the earlier recommendation to retain all 28 sports that featured at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

European Tour Properties Secure Commanding Presence In New Ranking of Continental Europe’s Finest Courses

September 20, 2017
Regarded as the authority on European golf courses and resorts, Golf World compiled a team of international experts to update its biennial ranking of continental Europe’s best layouts. The highest-placed European Tour Properties course is the stunning Stadium layout at PGA Catalunya Resort, Girona, in north-eastern Spain, with a final positioning of 7th. Also making the top 20 are Dave Thomas’ beautiful Chateau design at Terre Blanche Hotel Spa & Golf Resort***** in the Provençal hills, near the French Riviera (15th) and Robert Trent Jones’ spectacular links-style layout at TROIA Resort, Lisbon, Portugal (17th). David MacLaren, Head of European Tour Properties, commented: 2017 HNA Open de France host and 2018 Ryder Cup venue, L’Albatros course at Le Golf National, Paris – described by Golf World as “a thrill-a-minute modern course that guarantees a memorable experience” – is ranked 32nd. European Tour Properties’ latest addition, Spain’s Finca Cortesin, places at 42nd. The ever-popular and recently renovated Algarve duo of Quinta do Lago South and North are ranked 56th and 93rd respectively. Kyle Phillips’ Sicilian masterpiece Verdura East, which successfully hosted May’s Rocco Forte Open, is 61st, with its sister West course, which donated nine holes to the tournament layout, highlighted as a Key Contender just missing the list. Tree-lined Linna Golf, Finland, is 96th, with Colin Montgomerie’s Maxx Royal, Belek, Turkey, praised as the second key contender. European Tour Properties is a global collection of 25 elite golfing venues, each one chosen for its ability to deliver a tour-level experience to the visitor both on and off the course. “Whenever a panellist visits one of these venues they know they will be assessing a course and club of a certain calibre,” said Chris Bertram, editor of Golf World’s Continental European Top 100. “The fact European Tour Properties members form almost a tenth of the entire Top 100 is testament to the quality of the venues. In what was a searingly competitive ranking this time, the fact there were two further courses that could easily have made the main list illustrates the strength in depth of the collection.” To find out more about European Tour Properties, visit www.europeantourproperties.com To book a golf break to venues within the European Tour Properties network, visit The European Tour Travel Club website: http://www.golfbreaks.com/european-tour-properties/
