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 secures 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. We facilitate your stay from our range of housing inventory to combine your premium access to the tournament with exclusive hospitality and entertainment throughout the Ryder Cup week.
RYDER CUP CURATION EXPERIENCE
What better way to tee off your Ryder Cup than playing Jack Nicholas’ signature course on the Thursday where your Curation Connoisseur will host your day at The Bull at Pinehurst Farms. This “beauty of the beast” provides a wide variety of target landing areas, strategic bunkering, large undulating greens and water or gorges in some of the least expected areas. Round out an unforgettable day back at the 19th hole in the club house to share the inevitable funny moments of your round over a local craft ale.
The above is an outline of how we have curated Ryder Cup for our clients. We recognize that your needs are as unique as your business, therefore we invite you to challenge us to curate your perfect Ryder Cup experience.
Whether you have beaten the course or the course has beaten you, the excitement continues as you and your guests are invited to join the exclusive Curation’s Pitch & Run ‘Grill Out’ for an authentic 'Taste of the Midwest' BBQ feast. Rub shoulders and immersing yourself in the stories of past legends such as Sam Torrance and Tom Lehman host an informal evening full of humorous anecdotes and insights into the practice days play during.
Friday will see your Curation Connoisseurs await you and your guests at your exclusive corporate village prior to a day’s golf full of drama, tension, incredible golf, camaraderie and sportsmanship served in equal measure. Your Ryder Cup brunch upon arrival will allow you and your guests to catch up and unwind with free flowing bubbles and cocktails from a fully-stocked premium bar together with a comprehensive taste of the very best rural cuisines to set you up for your action-packed day ahead.
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 at a golf clinic back at your Ryder Cup village. Master your drive with the likes of Sam Torrance, 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.
What better way to bring down day 1 of what is assured to be yet another amazing tournament than by heading back to your Ryder Cup suite to reflect on an experience of a life time. Raise a toast with one of the many local craft ales, to acknowledge the fact that you have 2 more days of action packed golfing drama ahead. See you tomorrow for more dramatic ebbs and flows as the climax to the tournament builds. It could all come down to a final shoot out 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! Be there!
