About Ryder Cup

The Ryder Cup is one of golf’s most prestigious events. Ryder Cup is one of the few professional golfing events played simply for bragging rights, not prize money. Taking part in Ryder Cup is a great honor for both the players and the club selected to host the biennial event.

Hazeltine swirled with red white and blue linens and other decor as the United States took home the cup for the first time since 2008. Hazeltine’s Ryder Cup event was a huge success for everyone involved.
