How much a day at the 2018 Ryder Cup will cost you

Ryder Cup Spectator

So, you've touched down in Paris and your hotel, flights and transfers have all been paid for... but what about once you get through the gates?

Once you get on the ground at Le Golf National, there are plenty of places for you to buy some refreshments, notably the West Village and East Village - where the main spectator areas are - while there are also vans behind the first tee grandstand.

Where better to start than the price of a pint? Heineken lager, Affigem beer and Strongbow cider are what is available on draft and here's the lowdown on how much a pint of each will set you back.

Alcohol

• ½ Pint of Heineken - €5.50
• Pint of Heineken - €9
• ½ Pint of Affigem or Strongbow - €6.50
• Pint of Affigem or Strongbow - €10

If that wasn't expensive enough, check out the full price list on the image below.

On to arguably the most important aspect of the day (yes, more important than alcohol): the food. If you’re at the event from say 7.30am in the morning - prior to the first tee shots being hit - to after 5.30pm when the final putts have been sunk, you’re probably going to need a couple of meals.

Clearly, this varies from person to person but once you factor in buying a programme and something from the Ryder Cup Shop, we've broken it down as follows:

• Programme - €10
• Meal No.1 - Ham & Cheese Baguette - €8
• Four pints of Heineken - €36
• Small item of Ryder Cup merchandise (Ball marker & divot tool - €12 to a polo shirt - €46)
