Designed by Hubert Chesnaeu and Robert Van Hagge, Le Golf National opened in Guyancourt on the outskirts of Paris in 1990 and has hosted the Open de France every year since 1991 – except for ’99 and 2001. It hosts the Ryder Cup for the first time this year. Get to know it a bit better with our Le Golf National hole-by-hole guide.

Watch the video above as European Tour player Matthieu Pavon and the club’s academy coach Jean-Pierre Marzelle take you through the Ryder Cup host venue – or if you’d prefer to read what they have to say, head to the next page
