Ryder Cup Heritage Exhibition
Illustrating the rich history of one of the most compelling events in world sport, and building up to the 2010 Ryder Cup at the Celtic Manor Resort, Newport.
The Ryder Cup began in 1927 as a match between the professionals of Great Britain and the United States.
This exhibition tells the story of the competition, from its humble beginnings to the present day, and features a fascinating and unique collection of Ryder Cup memorabilia.
Items ranging from historic signed programmes and menus to team gifts and equipment are brought to life by photography from those first encounters more than 80 years ago right through to recent matches.
The exhibition is on display at the Riverfront Theatre and Arts Centre in Newport until 19 August, and can be seen at the Museum from 24 August to 22 September.
From 27 September to 3 October, when the eyes of the sporting world are focused on the first Ryder Cup to be held in Wales, the exhibition will be in the tented village at the Celtic Manor Resort for the thousands of spectators who will flock to see Colin Montgomerie’s European Team take on the United States Team led by Corey Pavin.
The Ryder Cup Heritage Exhibition helps bring to life the rich heritage of golf’s greatest team event and visitors will get a fascinating insight into how the competition has evolved over the years.
