RYDER CUP 2020
SEPTEMBER 2020 | WHISTLING STRAITS | WISCONSIN
Since 1927 this biennial tournament has grown into one of the most fiercely contested events in sport. For an event which is intrinsically individual the Ryder Cup delivers a unique team experience like no other; pitting 24 of the best players from the USA against 24 from Europe for pride not money. Teams and fans interact like at no other tournament to create a colourful 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 the US with what many consider to be the USA's best chance to regain the Cup, making this the most sought after sporting event in North America for 2020.
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. Combine golf’s most colourful tournament with the best of what downtown Chicago has to offer. Immerse your guests in the passion, drama and skill of one of golf’s most enthralling and colourful contests, as we secure you a front row seat at what can only be described as pure golfing theatre. At the end of each days play, our Ryder Cup Curation will bring Chicago to life; take in a show at The Loop’s theatre district, sample the finest culinary hot spots around the Magnificent Mile or lose yourself in the live music scene including some of the world’s best blues bars.
