Transport

We have a variety of transport options available for your trip to Le Golf National. 

We must inform you that there are travel restrictions in place throughout Ryder Cup week in the vicinity of the venue, so it is essential that you arrange your travel well in advance if you haven’t already done so. 

Le Golf National has a secure outer perimeter, therefore it is not possible to access the course directly on foot – you can only enter the course via one of the official transport hubs:

 

TRAVELLING BY TRAIN

The easiest and fastest option to get to Le Golf National is via public transport. Whilst Ryder Cup travel cards have now sold out, anyone wishing to attend The Ryder Cup via train can still purchase train tickets.

We strongly recommend buying your tickets before your day of travel to Le Golf National, as there could be significant queues at the ticket machines at peak times, due to the crowds travelling to the event. 

To buy your train tickets: 

1.    Visit an automatic ticket machine located in the station from which you will be travelling to Le Golf National.

2.    Select ‘Tickets for Region Paris’

3.    Select your destination (Ryder Cup fans must arrive via Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines or Massy Palaiseau stations)

4.    Select 2 journeys. This will provide you with both an outbound and inbound ticket
