9.30am 15th April 2013 - Travel


The illustrious Ryder Cup will be played on the Gleneagles PGA Centenary Course on the 26-28 September 2014. Continuing the countdown to this prestigious golfing event, European Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley paid his first official visit to The Gleneagles Hotel last month to unveil the ceremonial Silver Putter.  Symbolising the proud history of the biennial contest, the sterling silver club is adorned in a case by 24 silver golf balls and will be on display in the Dormy Clubhouse from now until the conclusion of the tournament. And now the hotel is offering you the opportunity to embrace the magic of the 40th Ryder Cup with your very own golf day on the PGA Centenary Course.

Suitable for any ability from beginners to professionals, golf enthusiasts that come to Gleneagles are in for a big treat.  Start the day with a bacon roll and coffee before warming up on the PGANationalAcademy driving range. Once on the PGA Centenary Course, golf carts using the latest GPS technology and the Fore-caddie will ensure that you have the ultimate golfing experience down to the very last detail. After winding down in the sauna, enjoy a two course golfers’ lunch in the stunning surroundings of The Dormy Clubhouse Bar and Grill. With each guest receiving a special Gleneagles 2014 Ryder Cup souvenir to finish off the day, this will truly be an unforgettable experience.

Set in 850 acres of splendid Perthshire countryside, The Gleneagles Hotel offers a multitude of activities to keep non-golfing guests entertained. Indulge yourself in relaxation at the award-winning ESPA spa or keep active with a spot of horse-riding or clay shooting.

Every golfer dreams of playing on the courses that the golfing greats have played. With prices starting at only £170 per golfer for groups of 8 or more – now is your chance to play the course before the might of Europe and the US do battle in 2014.
