Welcome to Scotland, the Home of Golf

For this first time since 1973, and for only the second in the history of The Ryder Cup, we will proudly welcome the world as Scotland plays host to the greatest tournament in match play golf, at the magnificent Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire.

With a history stretching back nearly a century, the tournament is the most highly-anticipated team match in the sport’s calendar. This year, The Ryder Cup is returning to its roots in Scotland and the very place it started 93 years ago at Gleneagles.

An unofficial warm-up match prior to the British Open between an American and a British team consisting of 12 players a piece, the meeting on the King’s Course at Gleneagles in June 1921 has gone down in sporting history as the birth of one of the most prestigious golf titles.

The Europe team, led this year by Paul McGinley, are hoping to retain the cup following their victories at Medinah Country Club in Illinois, USA in 2012 and the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, Wales in 2010.

With nine European victories to seven American, Team USA under the leadership of Tom Watson are sure to be on form for this clash of the Titans. And so, the battle lines are being drawn on the PGA Centenary Course in September.

Keep up with all the latest news and tournament information, including advice and tips for visiting spectators, here on our 2014 Ryder Cup website. Be inspired and start planning your trip to Scotland, the Home of Golf.
