Ireland hosted the Ryder Cup at the K Club, Co. Kildare in 2006. Forty thousand people attended on each of the three days according to Ryder Cup Limited estimates.

Teams from Europe and the United States compete every two years for the Cup, which was inaugurated in 1927. Ireland, North and South, has had a long and close involvement with the Ryder Cup from the days of Fred Daly, Harry Bradshaw, Christy O'Connor Senior, Eamonn Darcy, Ronan Rafferty, David Feherty, Christy O'Connor Junior, Philip Walton and Des Smyth through to today's top golfers, Darren Clarke, Padraig Harrington, and Paul McGinley.

There are over four hundred golf clubs in Ireland today. One of the most popular is the Palmer Ryder Cup Course at the K Club.
