Ryder Cup adding to local golf interest

You might be seeing more people on the area golf courses with the Ryder Cup coming to Whistling Straits in Kohler in less than two weeks.  Area golf courses have noticed an uptick in the excitement and interest surrounding the game and event.  Brandon Hansen, general manager, and golf professional at Idlewild Golf Club says many businesses will benefit from the international golf event coming close to Door County.



Hansen says golf has seen a resurgence in the past year with people looking for more outdoor activities.  He notes the Ryder Cup can create more awareness of golf in different generations. 



The 43rd edition of the Ryder Cup will be held from September 24-26, with the U.S. team looking to recapture the cup from the Europeans who won in Paris, France, in 2018.
