Prestigious Ryder Cup 2018 on our grass

Prestigious Ryder Cup 2018 on our grass

At the end of September, the top golfers from Europe and the United States will play at Le Golf National in Paris to compete for the Ryder Cup 2018. On the world’s strongest grass… Ours!

The world’s greatest golfing event, with teams of the best golfers, will take place on exceptional grass: a mixture of perennial ryegrass with unique horizontal stolons. This guarantees a perfect and fair playing surface for optimal ball control during the swing and bounce and roll.

Ambitious greenkeeper convinced

Alejandro Reyes, Superintendent at Le Golf National, discovered Barenbrug’s regenerating grass (RPR) a few years ago during a visit to the Netherlands. What he saw was exactly what he wanted on his foregreens, tees, fairways and semi-roughs. After an initial trial, he overseeded all the holes at Le Golf National with the same mixture.
