27 Sep 2018

Nolan Associates with GL Events have completed the design for the temporary grandstands and corporate facilities around the Albatros course at Le Golf National course near Paris where the Ryder Cup 2018 will be staged this week.

The course designed by architects Hubert Chesneau and Robert Von Hagge, in collaboration with Pierre Thevenin, it is located in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, southwest of central Paris and will be the first used in France.

The temporary grandstand to the 1st tee, 15th and 18th green will provide seating for over 6500 spectators along with media facilities. The BBC’s commentary position over the final green is at top top of the vast stand.
The BBC’s golf correspondence Ian Carter has provided a look around the stand and describes the view as ‘absolutely incredible.’
