The Perthshire resort has unveiled The Ryder Cup Experience, a group golfing package on the PGA Centenary Course which will allow participants to play the final tournament course before it hosts the world’s top golfers in 2014.

Groups of up to 72 can experience a Shotgun Start tournament on the Jack Nicklaus-designed course, including 18 holes on the PGA Centenary Course; coffee/tea and a bacon roll on arrival; and a two-course golfers’ lunch in The Mitchell Room (named for golfer Abe Mitchell, the figure atop the Ryder Cup trophy) on the day of the competition.

Also included are GPS-guided golf carts, a one-hour golf clinic at the PGA National Golf Academy prior to play, photography on tee and full scoring and tournament administration from Gleneagles’ team of qualified PGA professionals, including personally branded scorecards, Ryder Cup pin flags, and tournament signage.

Each participant will be given an exclusive Ryder Cup branded gift, unique to the Ryder Cup Shotgun Experience. For corporate groups, there is the opportunity to include personalised welcome messages on golf cart GPS screens, and company branding on carts and signage across the course.

Andrew Jowett, Gleneagles’ head pro said: "As The Ryder Cup fast approaches, and we gear up to host one of the world’s biggest sporting events, this is the perfect opportunity for groups to experience the PGA Centenary Course for themselves, before it sees the golfing greats of the U.S. and Europe do battle. It would make a fantastic, fun activity for incentive and team-building groups, or a quirky alternative to the usual corporate golf day."
