RYDER CUP 2023
SEPTEMBER 2023 | MARCO SIMONE GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB | ITALY
Since 1927 this biennial tournament has grown into one of the most fiercely contested events in sport. Although, intrinsically an individual sport, the Ryder Cup delivers a unique team experience like no other. It brings 24 of the best players from the USA against 24 players from Europe, for pride not money. Teams and fans interact like at no other tournament to create a colorful atmosphere, unlike anything in the world of golf. Guaranteed to deliver incredible drama, unbelievable golf matched with great camaraderie and sportsmanship; in short, the very best of golf. After a sustained period of European dominance, with the European team winning 4 of the last 6 competitions, the Ryder Cup returns to Europe. The cultural capital of Rome, Italy will become only the third course to host this prestigious tournament outside of the UK and Ireland for what is sure to be a supercharged atmosphere no doubt further heightened by the local Tifosi.
Our Ryder Cup Curation recognizes that there is more to attending a tournament than watching the action on the course. It’s an event, a tradition, a memory in the making securing you a front row seat at what can only be described as pure golfing theatre. Our Curation will immerse you and your guests in the passion, drama and skill of one of golf’s most enthralling contests whilst leveraging all that the magnificent city of Rome has to offer. We combine premium access to the tournament with exclusive hospitality and entertainment throughout Ryder Cup week with some of golf’s greats of the past and present on hand to guide you through the history and tactics of this unique golfing spectacle.
