Even for a legend like Jack Nicklaus, the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles Hotel was a challenge. It had to be special set as it is in the heart of Scotland, and on a site Nicklaus described as “The finest parcel of land in the world I have ever been given to work with.”
The Ryder Cup 2014 is approaching and we can’t wait! In this article you’ll find information about the 2014 Ryder Cup, including dates, location, captains, VIDEOS, and much more. Enjoy!
The Ryder Cup is a men’s golf tournament played between Europe and the United States every two years. The venue for the competition, which is administered by both the PGA of America and the PGA European Tour, alternates equally between Europe and the U.S locations. The Ryder Cup is named after the Englishman Samuel Ryder, who donated the prized trophy.
We have always sought “innovation” at PerryGolf and tried to offer interesting and unique ways to enhance the golf travel experience. Our exclusive charter of the 226 passenger Le Diamant (formerly Song of Flower of Radisson Cruise Lines) for Ryder Cup 2010 is one such example. Set against a backdrop of limited accommodations in South Wales, and with the alternative of long road journeys from England along the invariably congested M4 corridor (and that is in normal traffic times), we arranged to charter and berth Le Diamant in a quiet area of Newport Docks less than 5 miles from the venue. All packages include official Ryder Cup tickets and transportation in association with Ryder Cup Travel Services. Regular shuttle transportation, available exclusively for PerryGolf passengers, will operate from the ship directly into the official transportation area and bypass the public park and ride facility. The ship offers cabins and suites from 200 to 400 square feet. If you have plans to attend the 2010 Ryder Cup at the Celtic Manor Resort then this solution really does by far provide the most comfortable and convenient accommodations available.
