A Day At The Ryder Cup

The Beck & Score team has returned from a great Ryder Cup week in Scotland and almost recovered from jet lag. Since many of our members and social media followers weren't able to experience the excitement of this unique golf tournament (and yes, this is one golf event even the golf antagonists enjoy!), our agents helped put together what a typical Ryder Cup day looked like. Re-live the experience through their story below!

9:25 a.m. – Upon exiting customs, you walk out and immediately spot one of the Beck & Score agents awaiting your arrival with the signature red bell sign. Your agents escorts you to a private vehicle where you’ll enjoy views of the beautiful Scottish countryside en route to Glenmor Lodges at Gleneagles. 

11:30 a.m. – You arrive at Glenmor Lodges and begin to unpack. You open the fully stocked fridge that has all the groceries you requested and grab a snack while sitting down to look through your Beck & Score welcome kit. 

1:00 p.m. – You head out the door of your lodge for a short 10-minute walk over to the course where you arrive at the Beck & Score suite on the 12th green. While sipping a cocktail and enjoying lunch, you watch the end of the last day of Ryder Cup practice. Having heard a great deal about the restaurants at Gleneagles, while in the suite you request that your Beck & Score agent confirm dinner reservations for the evening at Deseo. 

3:00 p.m. – Before heading off to catch the Opening Ceremonies, you sip on afternoon tea and enjoy the pre-ceremony fanfare on one of the many TVs in the suite. Want to play a round of golf later in the week? Your Beck & Score agent offers to schedule you a round at St. Andrew’s and suggests also scheduling a massage for that evening to ward off any potential sore muscles!

5:15 p.m. – Following the Opening Ceremonies, you enjoy a relaxing stroll on the grounds on Gleneagles. 

8:30 p.m. – After relaxing for a bit, you wander over to Gleneagles for a delicious dinner at Deseo. You sit down and select a local scotch as well as a cut of beef from the “breed book” that Deseo and local butcher Simon Howie have created, giving diners the chance to select their beef the same way you’d select a fine wine. 

10:30 p.m. - You return from dinner and find a cozy fire lit in your lodge. Perfect for a damp Scotland evening! Pouring yourself a glass of scotch, you settle in on the couch to unwind from an action-packed day at Gleneagles. Don't stay up too late though, play begins bright and early tomorrow morning!
