A Brief Overview
Experience one of golf’s most captivating events in 2020 at the luxurious Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, USA.
The Ryder Cup has become one of golf’s most entertaining events and is held every two years alternating between USA and Europe. The competition takes place over three days with 28 matches played in total. Friday and Saturday consist of Fourball and Foursome matches, while Sunday is reserved for singles matches. The very best players from Europe and the United States are selected to play for their teams with plenty of drama, tension, incredible golf, and camaraderie on offer.
This year’s Ryder Cup will be played on the famous Straits Course at the very luxurious Whistling Straits in Haven, Wisconsin USA. The Straits course replicates the ancient Irish seaside links courses and is set along a 3km stretch of stunning Lake Michigan. Vast rolling greens, deep bunkers, big elevation changes and exposed open fairways make this course very challenging. It’s a captivating event like no other and one we can highly recommend.
Over a number of years, as an Official Partner of Ryder Cup, we’ve been helping fans experience the event in style. Le Golf National in Paris was an incredible event and we are very much looking forward to Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, where Ryder Cup has never before been held.
After a complete travel experience? We can organise your entire trip from start to finish, including flights, transport, travel insurance, sightseeing, accommodation, event tickets and much more. For those looking for a premium experience, we recommend choosing a Grandstand or Hospitality Package—both of which we can help you with.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 2020 edition of the Ryder Cup in the United States.

The Course: Whistling Straits
Whistling Straits is arguably one of the finest golf courses in the United States. Having hosted the 2004, 2010 and 2015 PGA Championships and the 2007 US Senior Open, Whistling Straits has the pedigree, experience and stunning setting to ensure the 2020 Ryder Cup is one of the biggest yet. The club, located on the shores of Lake Michigan, is home to two courses designed by Pete Dye and both rank among the countries very best. The Straits course (Ryder Cup course) and The Irish course are both modelled on traditional Irish links courses and feature windswept, open and rugged terrain with big dunes and bunkers that make for challenging play and fantastic viewing.

Not only are our team extremely experienced, but we are passionate about helping fans get the most from their travel experience, something we hope to do for you.
By choosing us as your travel partner, it means you have access to Official Tickets and are not supporting the secondary or black markets, which is a risky way to enjoy an event. On top of this, we are fully accredited with AFTA, ATAS and other organisations.

What’s the difference between a Package and a Tour?
Packages are designed for independent travellers and are not escorted day-to-day by Events Travel staff. With a package, you’re travelling on your own, but you may see Events Travel staff at formal events, transfers or ticket collection centres (if applicable).
With a Tour, it’s the opposite and you will be escorted throughout your trip by a Tour Manager who is there to manage the group and to make sure everything happens smoothly. All our Tours are designed for small-groups and balance event experiences, destinations and are often themed, for example, golf, gourmet or nature. Tours are a great option to travel with like- minded people. Sit back and relax, knowing everything is taken care of.

What travel services do you offer?

Please note: Extra nights are subject to availability and are best booked as early as you can. Note that if you book at the same hotel via other means (e.g. a hotel booking site or direct) then you may not receive the same room for the duration of your stay.
