Experience the electric atmosphere!

When you think of a golf tournament, you may not think of the atmosphere being one of the biggest draws to the event, however, this is where you’re completely wrong.

With grandstands and big screens scattered across the course as well as spectator villages, the buzz amongst crowds is electric – and you certainly don’t have to be a golfer to appreciate this!

When it comes to crowd engagement, nothing can compare to the Ryder Cup, with the match play format creating the kind of competition and atmosphere you get at other sporting events. With over-the-top crowds, eccentric fan attire, and extreme pressure on matches, there is really nothing else like it in the game!

An event like no other

The Ryder Cup is now regarded as one of the greatest sporting events on the calendar. Samuel Ryder, from whom the cup gets its name, was inspired by the 1926 match at Wentworth when Abe Mitchell teamed up with George Duncan to defeat the great Open champions, James Barnes and Walter Hagen. In the bar after the game, Ryder declared ‘We must do this again’. The rest is history...

When officially introduced in 1927, the two teams competing were originally Great Britain and the United States. The US got off to an impressive start, winning the first five Ryder Cup competitions. This dominance continued both before and after the Second World War, which led to the inclusion of European players in 1979, where the playing field became a lot more even.

In recent years, the Ryder Cup has brought to our screens some of the most memorable displays in the cup’s history. Many of you will have witnessed the ‘Miracle of Medinah’ in 2012, the United States' brilliant display at Hazeltine in 2016, and Europe’s demolition job at Le Golf National in 2018. Needless to say, the trend over the past decade has been a back-and-forth tussle with each team winning on their home soil.
