Sept. 25-Oct. 1, 2023 Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, Rome, Italy

Thousands upon thousands of people visited Le Golf National for The 2018 Ryder Cup, but for John and Rochelle Plumb, they weren’t expecting the surprise they got on the Tuesday morning of Ryder Cup week. 

The couple from North London, who now live in the Canary Islands, had never attended a golf tournament before and as the first people in the queue, they were afforded an invaluable experience. 



The day started by going inside the ropes at the team photo on the 10th fairway. Rochelle even managed to meet her favourite golfer, Luke Donald. 

For John, meeting fellow Arsenal Fan Ian Poulter was a highlight in a day they will not forget in a hurry. 

This was topped by following the Celebrity Match inside the ropes, affording Rochelle the opportunity to meet one of her favourite actors – Jamie Dornan. 

The Ryder Cup had been on their bucket list for years and what an incredible way to witness your first ever golf tournament.
