PGA of America to begin selling tickets to 2004 Ryder Cup Matches on May 27, 2003

August 19, 2004

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.-Sports fans from around the world interested in attending the 35th Ryder Cup Matches next year at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Township, Mich., Sept. 14-19, 2004, can register for tickets online at beginning May 27, 2003. Entries will be accepted through, Aug. 15, 2003, and registration is free.

The PGA of America is once again expecting the demand for Ryder Cup tickets to far exceed their ability to accommodate all requests, therefore, a random drawing to determine ticket purchasers will be held Sept. 30, 2003. Results of the random drawing will be announced Oct.15, 2003.

The gallery will be limited to 38,000 per day, but unlike previous Ryder Cup Matches, daily tickets will be available, which will allow more fans to experience the event. A maximum of two weekly tickets, or, four daily tickets per person may be purchased. Applicants will be charged for Ryder Cup tickets Oct. 1, 2003, only if they are selected in the drawing. Payment will be accepted by MasterCard, Visa or American Express.

There are three ticket options:

  • International Pavilion Ticket ($425) allows access to all six days of the Ryder Cup Matches, the opening ceremonies and the International Pavilion. This exclusive facility will be located on the grounds of Oakland Hills Country Club. There will be elaborate decor, big screen televisions, upscale food and beverage, outdoor patio and a festive atmosphere unique to the climate controlled Ryder Cup International Pavilion.
  • Season Ticket ($275) allows access to all six days of the Ryder Cup Matches and the opening ceremonies.
  • Daily grounds tickets are available for Tuesday ($40), Wednesday ($40), Thursday ($75), Friday ($85), Saturday ($85) and Sunday ($100).
  • Official Ryder Cup Travel Packages, which include tickets to the Matches and accommodations, are available through Premier Golf-the official travel company of The PGA of America at 1-800-283-4653.

The Ryder Cup Matches are one of the most spirited, exciting and compelling events in sport-covering nearly 80 years, involving the greatest players in the world and producing some of the greatest moments in the game. Ryder Cup Captain Hal Sutton will lead a U.S. Team that looks to win back the Cup in 2004 from Europe, which scored a stunning 15.5 to 12.5 victory over the United States in the 34th Ryder Cup Matches at The Belfry in Sutton Coldfield, England.
