Last Tango in Paris

There is something of the unreal about Le Golf National in Paris.

The course is host to the 2018 Ryder Cup, annual French Open and now the unfolding epic of the  Wryter Cup.

This week it was time for the golfer in us all to step up as my great and worthy Press Golfing Society teammates battled it out against our mighty French APG rivals.

Despite our best efforts we were unable to overcome the voyeuristic gluttony of hazards and bunkers coiled panther-like throughout this beast of a course. Stretching nearly 7,000 yards in the flatland region of Guyancourt, the Albatros Course is the centrepiece of Le Golf National and offers a truly memorable 18-holes.

The vast greens are the biggest challenge expertly shaped around water features requiring you to use every club in your bag making this a test of strength, versatility and accuracy. Le Golf National is a masterfully crafted true championship course. Each hole has its own character and charm but the layout will challenge even our Ryder Cup heroes.

We may have lost the battle of the Albatros but the French are in for a real taste of cold British steel at Royal Porthcawl in 2013.
