What is the Ryder Cup?
The Ryder Cup is the most prestigious event in golf, and is a biennial golf competition between teams from Europe and the United States, with venues alternating between them.
The format for the Ryder Cup involves various match play competitions between players selected from two teams of twelve. Currently, the matches consist of eight foursomes matches, eight fourball matches and 12 singles matches. The winner of each match scores a point for their team, with ½ a point each for any match that is tied after 18 holes.

Can I play the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles?
Yes. You can find more information on green fees and how to book a tee time on the golf course through Gleneagles.
When is the best time to play golf in Scotland?
You can play golf in Scotland all year round. The main golf season is April until September. May and September are the busiest months. We advise you to book well in advance to avoid disappointment. Golf is played by Scots throughout the winter, especially on links courses.
What clothing should I bring?
When playing golf in Scotland we recommend that you come prepared, as the weather can be a little unpredictable. Pack a woollen sweater and a set of waterproofs. It is also worth remembering that many clubs operate a dress code where jeans, collarless shirts and trainers are not permitted. It is best to check directly with the golf club.
