open de franceFrom 30 June to 3 July, Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines will host the Open de France, a feature tournament on the European Tour international schedule. A word-class field is expected on the remodeled Albatros course, which will host the 2018 Ryder Cup.
Ten years after celebrating its centenary, the Open de France is on the verge of its one hundredth edition. Played for the first time in 1906, the tournament is continental Europe’s oldest national open, and has been staged without interruption ever since, with the exceptions of the war periods (1915-19 and 1940-45). Part of the European Tour international schedule since its inception in 1972, it attracts every year the finest golfers from Europe and around the world, as shows its illustrious roll of honour.
From 30 June to 3 July, 156 players will compete for a € 3.5 million purse and vital points in the qualifying rankings for the Olympic Games (11-14 August) and the Ryder Cup (30 September-2 October). The main stars will be announced in the weeks and months to come, but a top-quality field is already expected to take on the new-look Albatros course. The Hubert Chesneau-designed layout will indeed reopen in the spring, after eight months of works aimed at making it fit for the Ryder Cup, the biennial contest between Europe’s 12 best players and their American counterparts, which it will play host to in two years and a half.Tickets to attend the 100th Open de France are on sale as of Tuesday 16 February on the tournament website ( Various options – daily tickets or multiple day packages – offering different levels of services – classic or premium – are available first for the French golf federation members, then for the general audience. Furthermore, during four periods of time between February and June, buyers will have the opportunity, via lottery draws, to be awarded special advantages such as Players Lounge access for two persons.
