The 2020 Ryder Cup is still more than a year away, but golf enthusiasts can now purchase official travel packages.

The PGA is working with Primesport, a global sports travel and event management company, to promote and sell the packages on its website. Golf fans can choose from gold- and silver-level travel packages as well as ones specifically geared toward those rooting for Team USA or Team Europe, said Jason Mengel, director for the 2020 Ryder Cup.

“Primesport has been  an exceptional partner to the PGA of America, supplying Ryder Cup and sports enthusiasts with unparalleled on and off-site services and experiences,” he said. “We are thrilled to have Primesport support the 2020 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits, which will be one of the most significant sporting events ever hosted in the state of Wisconsin.”
