Europe has a trophy to defend in Perthshire this autumn, and the bar’s been set pretty high on the hospitality front too. Gleneagles is the chosen venue for the 2014 Ryder Cup and it boasts a formidable array of hospitality options to match the best the USA can offer. The event runs from Tuesday 23 to Sunday 28 September and match-day packages start at £495pp, with bookings taken for groups of up to 50. Designed to offer a broad range of opportunities, the Official Hospitality Programme includes flexible catering options to help guests maximise face-time or make the most of the sporting action, depending on priorities. Private suites are available, as well as more informal locations in which to base your party.
