An event like no other

The Ryder Cup has become one of the world’s greatest sporting events, since its conception in 1927. Every two years, 24 of the best players from Europe and the United States go head-to-head in match play competition. Drama, tension, incredible golf, camaraderie and sportsmanship are served in equal measure, captivating an audience of millions around the world. It’s an event that transcends sport, yet remains true to the spirit of its founder, Samuel Ryder.

The 2023 Ryder Cup will be played, for the first timer, in Italy from 25th September to 1st October at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, located just outside of Rome. General admission tickets have already sold out, but if you want a front-row seat at the golf event of the year, our Golf Team can get you there in style. Have a look at our sample itinerary for the ultimate Ryder Cup experience and let us know what you think.

ITINERARY

DAY 1 – DEPART UK

Head to a London airport for your flight to Rome with British Airways or a low-cost airline. Enjoy some time in the lounge before the short two-hour flight. Upon arrival into Rome, your driver will meet you at arrivals for your private transfer to your hotel.

 

DAY 2 – FIRST DAY OF THE RYDER CUP

Enjoy an early breakfast and meet your driver at the hotel reception for the journey to the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club. Make sure you arrive early and don’t miss the first tee shots!

 

DAY 3 – SECOND DAY OF THE RYDER CUP

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before heading back to the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club for day two of the Ryder Cup.

 

DAY 4 – FINAL DAY OF THE RYDER CUP

Have an early breakfast this morning to make sure you’re up and ready in time for the biggest day of the Ryder Cup. Your driver will meet you at reception for the journey back to Marco Simone Golf and Country Club for the final day of the tournament. Follow the best golfers in the world as they go head to head for the most famous team prize in golf. Enjoy the whole day walking behind the ropes and witness the presentation and celebrations as Europe are hopefully crowned Ryder Cup winners!

 

DAY 5 – HEAD HOME OR ONWARDS…

Enjoy breakfast at leisure before meeting your driver at the hotel reception. Choose either to head back to the airport for your flight back to London, or take the short flight from Rome to Palermo in Sicily to extend your adventure a little while longer!

If you end up in Palermo (and we highly suggest you do), meet your driver at arrivals for the short journey to Rocco Forte Verdura Golf Resort. Picturesque greens, golf at leisure and pure relaxation will be waiting for you. Once you’re checked in and unpacked, head down to the beach for some celebratory cocktails at happy hour before dining on a traditional Italian feast for dinner.

 

DAY 6 – PLAY THE WEST COURSE AT VERDURA

Savour a leisurely breakfast before making your way to the first tee on the West Course at Verdura. Recently renovated, this par 73 course is a great test for golfers of all levels. Gaze out over the backdrop of the Mediterranean ocean while winding your way through one of Italy’s top courses.

 

DAY 7 – PLAY THE EAST COURSE AT VERDURA

Another breakfast at leisure this morning, before you head out to the East course for your final round of golf. Spend another day soaking in the panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea while you practice your shots in pure heaven. This Kyle Philips course is the signature course at Verdura and has been voted the Number 1 Course in Italy – a must play!

 

DAY 8 – HEAD HOME

On your final day in Verdura, enjoy breakfast by the beach before relaxing on the sun beds or even heading to the spa before your evening flight back. Your driver will collect you from the hotel and take you to Palermo Airport for your direct flight to London (approximately 3 hours). On arrival into London, your driver will greet you at arrivals and take you home to recover from the best holiday of your life.
