Possibly the greatest weekend that European Golf has experienced? I would say so. For those who were lucky enough to witness the most unlikely of comebacks by Team Europe it will live long in the memory. Written off by almost everyone Olazabal and his team turned the scoreboards blue on Sunday to once again bring the Ryder Cup back ‘home’ across the Atlantic. Team Europe and especially their Captain Jose Maria Olazabal have made no secret of their desire to win the Ryder Cup for the late great Seve Ballesteros or, in European terms, Mr Ryder Cup. Here at The Westerwood Hotel and Golf Resort, a course partly designed by Ballesteros, the Ryder Cup is always an extra special event on the golfing calendar due to the ties we have with the late Spanish Maestro. As a result of this we would like to congratulate Team Europe for what they have done for European Golf and lets hope that golf in this country, and in the rest of Europe, continues to prosper especially with the 2014 Ryder Cup landing just on our doorstep at the PGA Centenary Course, Gleneagles.
I hope that the triumph of the Ryder Cup will now flow down to clubs across the country as I am sure that in the weeks to come many golfers will be inspired by Team Europe’s heroic comeback to pick up the golf clubs that they had perhaps hidden away after one of the wettest summers Britain has experienced in many a year. Here at The Westerwood Hotel and Golf Resort we have at times suffered due to the weather but all credit must go to the Greenkeepers for keeping the course, and the greens in particular in good condition. Despite the season drawing quicker than I’m sure we’d all like to a close we would be delighted to welcome you to The Westerwood Hotel and Golf Resort for a bounce game with friends, or for a mini Ryder Cup.
We wish you the best of golfing luck in the coming weeks and months and look forward to welcoming you to The Westerwood Hotel and Golf Resort. To book a round of golf please visit www.QHotels.co.uk/bookgolf
