We are already excited and gearing up to welcome the 43rd Ryder Cup to Milwaukee!  The Ryder Cup has become one of the world’s greatest, and most highly anticipated sporting events.  And this time, it’s our turn to experience the pageantry and drama, as it’s going to be held on the Straits course at our very own Whistling Straits.  

Considered golf’s pre-eminent event, this bi-annual competition features 24 of the best players from the United States and Europe.  Athletes go head-to-head in this dramatic and tense three-day competition, showing off their incredible talents as well as their camaraderie and sportsmanship.  It’s an event that transcends sport, and is absolutely captivating, from the first tee to the last putt, and watched by millions all around the world.

Spanning an incredible 90 years of competition, the Ryder Cup is said to be one of the last great professional sporting events where winning is the real and most desired prize, not the money.  It’s all about the glory of the title. And, if you’ve ever been to a Ryder Cup or watched the event unfold on TV, it’s easy to understand why.  The energy of the competition is just so special that it’s really the driving force that carries the athletes and the entire event.

With last year’s Cup held in Paris, France, Americans are once again thrilled to get a part of the action.  The crowd in Paris turned up some 50,000 fans, and the 2020 Fall competition here at Whistling Straits is already expected to see similar numbers.  Those involved in making next year’s event happen say that the course can hold a good number of people and that they’re also looking at creative ways to use the adjacent land to create some unique experiences for all of the fans both on and off of the golf course.      

Though there’s still some time before the athletes take the green, Ryder Cup tickets are already all the talk around town.  That’s because the tickets are only available via a lottery system, and the application process will open this spring! So, make sure you’re the first to know when registration opens, and head to the Ryder Cup website to sign up for notifications.       

The Ryder Cup is the most lucrative event in golf.  And, as you can imagine, it’s an event that helps local businesses thrive.  But, as the ticket lottery opens, bookings are going to fill up fast! So, don’t wait to call and reserve your stay.  

The Kinn MKE Guesthouse is already accepting reservations for Fall of 2020.  We look forward to hosting you during this most exciting world-class event. And, as always, we look forward to your stay with us any time of year.  So, as soon as you’re ready to book your cozy, home-away-from-home getaway in beautiful Bay View, give us a call. We’re happy to answer all of your questions and get you set up to experience all of the wonderful things that Milwaukee has to offer.
