Tee off for a round of Ryder Cup golf from Portsmouth International Port

Golf fans looking to play next year’s Ryder Cup course, before the US and European teams do battle in France in September, can now sail, stay and play from Portsmouth International Port.

Brittany Ferries is offering exciting packages to golfers leaving from Portsmouth, heading to Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-En Yvelines just outside Paris.  The deal allows them to experience the course where Europe hopes to snatch back the Ryder Cup from the current American holders click here for information

With a specialist golf desk handling bookings, Portsmouth International Port’s biggest ferry company has put together a special four night break. As well as playing at Le Golf National, there is a round at Golf de Courson and Golf de Rochefort also included in the £559 package. 

Return ferry crossings with car and cabins on both the outward and return journeys are also part of the price, as are two nights on a bed and breakfast basis at the Hotel le Versailles.

Graham Ruth, director of Brittany Ferries Golf, himself a keen golfer, said: “Our Ryder Cup package is the jewel in the crown of our 2018 golf breaks. We offer hundreds of sail and stay breaks to play some of the most challenging and picturesque courses throughout France and Spain every year, but I have no doubt the Golf National will be among our most popular next year.”

Brittany Ferries is an approved operator of Ryder Cup Travel Services, and is already selling all inclusive packages for the big event itself which starts on 28 September 2018. Holidays include ferry travel from Portsmouth International Port, five nights’ hotel accommodation and four standard Ryder Cup admission tickets click here for information 

Travellers from Portsmouth have a good chance of seeing Europe take the Ryder Cup back from the US team. The defending champions last won in Europe in 1993.
