The Secretary General of my Department attended the 2018 Ryder Cup for one day at the invitation of the European Tour. The purpose of his attendance was to discuss the possibility of the hosting of a future Ryder Cup in Ireland. The European Tour requested that the meeting would be held at Le Golf National in Paris on one of the three days of the Ryder Cup, in order to illustrate the scale of the infrastructure required by the event.
He met with the CEO and Deputy CEO of the European Tour and the Ryder Cup Director. He was also in contact with a former Ryder Cup Captain who is also a member of the European Tour Board.
The cost of flights was €483.16, hotel €152.15 and train fare €10.30.
