The RYDER COP
at the Cannes Old Course Mandelieu
Police and Golf Old Course Mandelieu share together new ideas and exceptional “Police” events.
1990 – 2002 Open Golf Police de Cannes
In October 1990, under the leadership of Patrick DREVON and the Cannes Sports Association, the Old Course hosts the first edition of the Open Golf Police Cannes which remains in everyone’s memory. The first edition, which brought together 84 players, brought together nearly 400 players 13 years later for a week of exceptional golf.
2018 The first RYDER COP
In 2017, germinates in the mind of Sébastien MANADIN of the Monaco Police to create a tournament called the RYDER COP, in a nod to the famous RYDER CUP. With his colleague Nicolas VINCENT of the French National Police of Nice the idea takes shape to see its first edition take place on 7th of June on the splendid fairways of the Old Course of Cannes Mandelieu: 8 Monegasques V 8 French, the first round is won by Monaco 3 / 1!
Would the story of the RYDER COP be written?
his first meeting that marks the beginning of a great adventure could, in a more or less close future, bring together two teams from the elite of the European and American police golf and, why not, play one day in raising curtain From the RYDER CUP!
The dream is allowed …
For this first day, the teams consisted of:
France Police Team in blue:
