More about The Yorkshire Ryder Cup Tour
The 2nd Ryder Cup Matches were held at the Moortown Golf Club in Leeds, England. It was very cold, with hail and at one point heavy snow on the greens. About two thousand spectators saw America gain a narrow lead after the foursome matches before the Great Britain team won singles on the final day and thus the competition by a score of 7–5 points. George Duncan of Scotland became the first of only three British captains to lift the Ryder Cup which was given to him by Samuel Ryder who was in attendance after missing the 1927 matches.
The 8th Ryder Cup Matches were held 16–17 September 1949, at Ganton Golf Club in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England. The United States team won the competition by a score of seven to five.
Still recovering from his near-fatal automobile accident in February, Ben Hogan was the non-playing captain of the U.S. team. He returned as a competitor for a final time in 1951.
The U.S. team's decision to bring a half ton of meat to England made headlines. Hogan objected to the depth of the grooves on some British players' irons, and they were modified before being allowed into the competition. Britain led three to one after the first day, but the U.S. won six of eight matches in singles on Saturday to keep the Cup.
The Ganton course measured 6,632 yards (6,064 m) for this Ryder Cup.
The 12th Ryder Cup Matches were held 4–5 October 1957 at Lindrick Golf Club in Rotherham, England. The Great Britain team, led by captain Dai Rees, beat the United States team by a score of 7½ to 4½ points, and won the Ryder Cup for the first time since 1933.
On the first day of competition was the Americans dominated the foursomes, winning three of the four matches. Dick Mayer and Tommy Bolt's 7 & 5 win over Britain's Christy O'Connor and Eric Brown was the largest margin of victory on day one.
The British rallied on the second day of competition, starting with the first two singles matches. Brown recorded a 4 & 3 victory over Bolt, and Peter Mills defeated U.S. captain Jack Burke, Jr. to draw Britain level at 3 to 3. The Americans responded when Fred Hawkins won his match against Peter Alliss, however Britain won the next four matches. Great Britain won the Ryder Cup when O'Connor defeated Dow Finsterwald, giving the British team 7 points. Harry Bradshawand Mayer halved the final singles match to bring the final score to 7½ to 4½, with Britain gaining 6½ points in the eight singles matches.

What a great short golf break we had in Yorkshire.
Everything went well – the transfers were on time, and if we wanted to stay a bit longer in the nice club houses it was no problem to change pick up times. The accommodation was great and the courses were absolutely stunning at Alwoodley, Ganton and Moortown.
A special big thank you to Darren from RC Lifestyle. He did such a great job – booked everything including restaurants, changed the time schedule for transfers and afterwards he even sent us the items we'd left behind in the hotel!
Excellent service and highly recommend Darren & RC Lifestyle to anyone looking to arrange a trip to the UK.

My aim now is how do I get to return to what is the best golfing experience I’ve had the pleasure to attend”
