The Ryder Cup heads to Continental Europe for just the second time in its history. Le Golf National, Paris will be this year’s host and will be fairly familiar to most of Team Europe due to it hosting of the annual European Tour event, HNA Open De France.

Eight of Europe’s team played in this year’s event, including the eventual winner, Alex Noren. Compare this to only Justin Thomas having played the course from Team USA, Europe already seem to have a slight upper hand.

The players will be playing on L’Albatros course and it has already been hyped up by Europe vice-captains Lee Westwood and Graeme McDowell. Westwood said: “It’s my favourite course in Europe. It could be a great Ryder Cup venue”.

The course has a yardage of 6,649 yards from the black tees, 534 yards less than 2016 Ryder Cup venue, Hazeltine.

Here’s a hole-by-hole guide to the course:
