RYDER CUP 2018
OFFICIAL SUPPLIER OF WEATHERWEAR TO THE 2016 & 2018 EUROPEAN RYDER CUP TEAM
Being Captain of the European Team at The 2018 Ryder Cup is a huge honour for me. I have the privilege of leading Europe’s best golfers with the chance to regain the famous trophy and add to the impressive record Europe currently has of having achieved eight victories from the past 11 contests, stretching back to 1995.
It also enables me to provide the Team members representing Europe at Le Golf National with the kind of world-class support that will enable them to perform at their very best during golf’s greatest team event. I am determined to give the European Team the clothing required to help them deliver points, whatever weather conditions prevail in Paris next September.
That’s why the collaboration with a brand like Galvin Green is so important to me and the Team. As the Official Supplier of Weatherwear to the 2018 European Ryder Cup Team, Galvin Green will provide us with 5-star technical performance garments in the form of the latest GORE-TEX® fabric with C-KNIT™ backer and the new Interface-1™ hybrid jackets.
Along with Team members at the last Ryder Cup, I was very impressed with the original lightweight C-KNIT™ rainwear. So, I’m sure that the 2018 European Team will appreciate the benefits of these latest garments from Europe’s leading weatherwear brand. They will be an integral part of a Team looking to win again.

The Product Development Team,
INTERFACE-1™ hybrid technology
Using the latest technology available in functional outwear, we are excited to introduce the ground-breaking hybrid range. The new INTERFACE-1™ shell layer provides exceptional versatility as a high-performance link between the mid-layer and outer layer. The many dimensions built into the INTERFACE-1™ make it the obvious choice for the serious golfer.
GORE-TEX® fabric with C-KNIT® backer
For the Ryder Cup 2016 we introduced the GORE-TEX® fabric with C-KNIT® backer for the first time. This year we are introducing our softest waterproof range ever – a completely new membrane featuring GORE-TEX® stretch fabric with C-KNIT® backer. This revolutionary Japanese-made technology has a super-smooth hand feel and can easily ‘slide & glide’ over garments underneath.
LE GOLF NATIONAL
Le Golf National, whose creation was decided upon on 27 September 1985 by the Committee of the FFG and its President, Claude-Roger Cartier, took three years of work to create – from July 1987 to 5 October 1990, the date of its inauguration by Ray Floyd, Greg Norman, Jeff Sluman and Marc Farry.
The grounds, which cover 139 hectares, were completely flat and bare when they were chosen, having been used as agricultural land since Louis XIV and the Château de Versailles, when it was one of the areas where wheat was farmed.
This choice allowed the land to be modelled with a topography that suits the objectives of the concept designer, Hubert Chesneau: to construct a golf stadium as a venue for the Open de France and various other national and international competitions, that can be kept open to all, all year round.
