On the day I wrote this blog, there was a frost warning in effect for north of Toronto and although I didn’t see any over my morning coffee, there was definitely a bite to the air.
Summer is now officially over and the golf season is drawing to a conclusion as much as we want to keep as many golfers as possible playing for as long as possible.
Interest in golf will hit a peak once again this week with the Ryder Cup being played at Gleneagles in Scotland, a site that you would think wouldn’t favour the Americans as they attempt to win their first against the Europeans since 2008 at Valhalla.
The Europeans have not only won the last two, but seven of the last nine Ryder Cups and things don’t look much better this year with names such as Tiger Woods, Jason Dufner and Dustin Johnson not in the lineup.
Of course, Tom Watson is the last American captain to guide his team to a Ryder Cup victory on European soil, that coming back in 1993 at the Belfry in England, so he’ll look to spin some of that magic once again this week against a powerful opponent led by Rory McIlroy.
There are plenty of interesting angles to watch on top of the usual Ryder Cup interest. That being said, does that represent an opportunity for the golf operation where you work in terms of more rounds played (a friendly competition with a Ryder Cup format) or food and beverage (Ryder Cup party)?
Is the golf operation where you work planning any special events around the Ryder Cup? That’s our question for this week.
