Ryder Cup unveils practice day bus plan

2014 07 Inbox499

Golf club members in Scotland can now enjoy a day out at a Ryder Cup Practice Day much easier thanks to the introduction of a direct bus scheme.

The initiative will enable groups of between 11 and 45 club members and their guests to travel direct to Gleneagles in their own minibus or coach. Golf club groups will also benefit from a discount on Practice Day tickets on Tuesday September 23 and Wednesday September 24. Tickets are priced at £30 for adults and £5 for 5-16 year-olds. Ryder Cup ambassador, Alan Hansen said fans will have a great time. “The Practice Days will be a fun and memorable day out for all fans,” said Hansen. “So it’s great news that golf club groups can now share the experience together. “As a golfer myself, I’m looking forward to joining fans and seeing the players practicing on the course and being part of what will be a tremendous atmosphere at Gleneagles.”

Ryder Cup Tartan Tuesday

This year, Ryder Cup Practice Days will tee off on ‘Tartan Tuesday’ on September 23. This is set to be a fun, charitable event that will welcome both teams to Scotland in traditional style. All spectators are being encouraged to wear a piece of tartan or the one-off tartan clothes pin that will also be on sale at the event, with all proceeds going to the Official Charities of The 2014 Ryder Cup.

What else is on?

As well as seeing both teams up close and in relaxed mood as they prepare for the big match, there will also be a variety of activities to enjoy including live entertainment, fine Scottish food and drink and official merchandise shopping.
