Fanatical individualists by nature, the cream of the professional golfing crop from Europe and the USA sink themselves into a common cause once every two years to represent Team Europe or Team USA...and the resulting fireworks are pure sporting drama, hard to come by in any other sport. The sudden team dynamic imposed on these elite players provides a fascinating storyline and an intoxicating atmosphere which is further charged with infinitely exuberant spectators.
Arguably the greatest championship course in the US, Whistling Straits is a stone’s throw from your Curation hospitality village. This provides you and your guests the opportunity to stroll across at your leisure led by your dedicated Curation Connoisseur, avoiding the usual fuss of transfers and taxis. Within 10 minutes, find yourselves amongst the passionate crowds dressed head to toe in suits made from their nation’s flag. Take your place centre stage in the thick of the action alongside the fescue fairways and massive sand dune bunkers as the gladiators of golf come out swinging.
After absorbing the action during the day and being a part of the captivated audience that this historic event has to offer, get your own swing in check as you get hands-on tuition from some of golf’s greats back at our hospitality and golf centre of excellence with our daily onsite golf clinics. Master your drive with the likes of Ernie Els, get to grips with your chipping with an Ian Woosnam master class or just understand the roll of the greens with Steve Stricker in a putting competition.
As the event that transcends sport with its dramatic ebbs and flows reaches a climax, both nations will be battling it out as they take on the ‘Dyeabolical’ green, the infamous 18th hole for its swirling winds and the Seven Mile Creek that makes or breaks rounds of golf for even the best on the tour!
