Feel the unrivalled thrill
Anyone who has ever stood on the first tee will feel a thrill at the thought of watching the skill and extraordinarily exciting action such a tournament will produce. To watch those who can place a golf ball exactly where they want it to be rather than hitting and hoping is never the same when watching televised coverage!
Golf, Dalnaglar Castle and the Scottish Highlands is heady stuff!
Scotland itself is majestic and unrivalled when it comes to golf and stunning places to stay such as Dalnaglar Castle. You may not realize but there are more than 550 golf courses in the country and therefore in terms of style, landscape and difficulty there are courses to suit everyone. It’s one thing to sit and watch the Ryder Cup from an armchair but quite another to be playing in Scotland as the same time as the professionals.
Without doubt the atmosphere of the Ryder Cup will be electric.
Even a ticket to the practice days will yield unrivalled tips and inspiration for golfers at every level. The sound of a perfect golf swing, the flight of the ball and the satisfying thud as it stops dead are just a taster of what a visit to Gleneagles in 2014 will bring. Yet relaxing after all the excitement is also par of the experience.
