PGA Golf Tour - The Ryder Cup
Golf ball on the green

The Ryder Cup

This biennial event, between the USA and Europe, is played alternately in the USA and Europe and is known as the most prestigious world golfing event. In 2006 Ireland hosted the event at the K Club in Straffan, Co Kildare.

Due to the vast numbers attending – 40/50,000 daily from all over the world – a transportation plan evolved requiring total multi-agency co-ordination.

PP, in conjunction with their client, the PGA European Tour, devised planning which, for car parking, required substantial Park & Ride facilities with contingencies for inclement weather; the latter of which was fully used. The week-long Operation involved 150 PP personnel.

"It is extremely difficult to put into words a thank you that will justify all yours and your team’s hard work, research, input, time and effort that you put into the Parking operation at the 2006 Ryder Cup although we will give it a veritable try.

Although I think we can all honestly say that the pre-event build up and the event week itself was possibly the most challenging of all our careers and that without Parking Promotions invaluable efforts with regards to our off-site car parks in extreme weather conditions, we would not now be basking in the glory of such a successful event.

On behalf of the whole Staging Team a huge thank you for your time and dedication in helping us deliver what is in the media’s opinion and within the golf world itself, the best Ryder Cup ever staged. We really could not have done this without you’.

Antonia Beggs,
Event Staging Manager
