Top 5 ways to get the best 2018 Ryder Cup experience

1. GET THERE SUPER EARLY!

Gates open at 5:30am on Friday morning of the Ryder Cup in France and if it's anything like previous Ryder Cups in Europe you will need to get down before that if you want to a seat on the first tee. We can guarantee there will be at least 1,000 fans waiting for the gates to open to pick their perfect viewing spot on the first tee grandstand. A black Friday style mini stampede will most defiantly occur as fans rush thru the gates. Be prepared for chaos from Europeans and USA fans.

2. GRAB A RYDER CUP RADIO

There is nothing worse than paying all that money and not being able to know the score. You might have the opportunity to view score boards to keep an eye of what’s going on so having a radio is 100% the right idea. This will keep you posted of all matches happening and really add to your overall experience.

3. THE CLOSING HOLES

The 15th and 16th holes are by far the best viewing points to watch the matches come down the closing stretch. This unique vantage point allows you to see so much golf and will be a popular spot for all fans.

4. DOWNLOAD THE APP

The 2018 Ryder Cup will keep you fully updated on what is going on the golf course. Full notifications to your smartphone as you walk around the course will allow you to see what is going on and catch up on highlights from around the course.

5. BIG SCREENS

Walking all day at Le Golf National will make you very hungry and thirsty make sure you find one of the HUGE screens around the tented village and get some rest from all that walking. A quick pit stop and at the golf tent and get on your way to watch the drama unfold!
