Newwest Travel's Top Sports Trips for 2018
1. 2018 Ryder Cup
In 2018, The Ryder Cup will be held in Continental Europe for only the second time in its history. Le Golf National in France will be hosting the biennial match on its spectacular L'Albatros course. Following recent extensive renovations, the course is shaping up to be a true test of both teams’ abilities and has a formidable reputation amongst some of the world’s top players and Ryder Cup luminaries
Situated around 20 miles south west of Paris, the spectacular course is one of the best in the world for spectators and is consistently ranked in Europe’s top ten courses.
2. 2018 U.S. Grand Prix
It may be one of the more recent additions on the Formula One calendar, but Austin has already proven itself as an exemplary host. Of course for F1 fans, it’s the race itself that’s the highlight, but the spectacular state-of-the-art facilities at the Circuit of the Americas takes it to the next level and is a big reason this circuit is one of the most popular with drivers.
Then there’s the city itself; Austin’s got great live music, a vibrant food scene and electric nightlife. Throw in some famous Texan hospitality and you’ve got a weekend that won’t soon be forgotten.
3. The Masters - Augusta, Georgia
While fans come to see golfers, it's the Augusta National Golf Club itself that's the top attraction. It's a perfect time of year with all the flowers and azaleas. This is the golf Mecca. Will we have another first time winner in 2018? After seeing Sergio Garcia win his first Major, you'll want to be in the centre of the action. Securing tickets and accommodations for the Masters can be difficult so plan this golf trip far in advance!
4. Oilers Now Road Trip - Las Vegas
Join Oilers Now host Bob Stauffer in Nashville for an exciting hockey road trip! We'll be heading to Las Vegas for the Oilers first ever game in Sin City.
5. 2018 Kentucky Derby
Experience the Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports! So much more than just a horse race, the Kentucky Derby is the original springtime sports party of extravagance, tradition, and celebrity! Each year, Churchill Downs draws an impressive crowd that includes some of the biggest names in entertainment and sport, as everyone who’s anyone descends upon the Twin Spires for the famed Run for the Roses.
The 2017 Kentucky Derby did not disappoint. In one of the most popular races to date, over 158,000 fans at Churchill Downs (and an additional 16.5 million watching on TV) witnessed post time favorite Always Dreaming claim the first leg of the triple crown, in convincing fashion.
