Take on American Golf Ryder Cup Challenge

By: Golfshake Editor | Thu 20 Sep 2018 | Comments

The Ryder Cup is nearly here, and you can experience a small taste of that pressure by taking on the American Golf Challenge, facing the spectacular par three 11th hole of Le Golf National on a Foresight Sports simulator in store.

American Golf is bringing the magic of the Ryder Cup to it’s stores by challenging the UK’s golfers to take on ‘Les Grenouilles’ or ‘The Frogs’, the stunning Par 3, 11th hole at Ryder Cup venue Le Golf National.

With a set of custom fitted TaylorMade irons on the line for nearest the pin, golfers will have three shots on a Foresight Sports simulator to see if they can take away the prize. The testing 178 yard 11th - known as 'Les Grenouilles' (The Frogs) - is guarded by water to the front and bunkers to the back, but the hazards won’t be on the minds of American Golf customers as they shoot straight for the pin.

Jennie Miller, Brand Marketing Manager at American Golf, is delighted to bring a little bit of the Ryder Cup excitement to this side of the channel. She said, “With all the action going on at Le Golf National we can’t wait to let golfers take on the same challenge as the teams in Paris. We can’t guarantee that they’ll have the same atmosphere as on the course but we can certainly say that with the help of Foresight Sports we’re giving the UK’s golfers the chance to get as close to the real life test as possible, and maybe win some fantastic custom fitted TaylorMade irons too!”
