Resale Ticket Prices Decrease for Upcoming Ryder Cup
This year’s Ryder Cup is right around the corner, with the 2016 event taking place in Chaska, NM, from September 27 to October 2. The Hazeltine National Golf Club will play host to the 1927-established competition, kicking off on a Tuesday for three days of practice rounds. Here’s how ticket prices are shaking out so far.
Current Resale Prices for Ryder Cup
|Event||Avg. Resale Price||Current Listing Price|
|Tues. Practice Round||$47||$46|
|Wed. Practice Round||$64||$51|
|Thurs. Practice Round||$144||$114|
|Fri. Competition Round||$398||$317|
|Sat. Competition Round||$406||$323|
|Sun. Competition Round||$397||$295|
As you can see, prices have come down, as the current listing prices are below the average price people have paid so far. In fact, for the three competitive rounds SeatGeek has seen the prices drop about 25 percent in the past month. This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, we often see this around sporting events as they get closer.
Looking at the last Ryder Cup in the U.S., in 2012 at Medinah in Illinois, the average resale price for each of the six days are still a bit lower than where the prices sit currently. But, with costs dropping lower each day, they’ll likely taper off to a similar average.

Unsurprisingly, the three competition days are going to end up being some of the most in-demand events we have ever seen in Minnesota (until the Prince tribute tickets are released, at least). The only two events that top the three Ryder Cup days are the 2014 MLB All-Star Game ($548 average resale price) and the September 18 Packers at Viking matchup ($411 average resale price).
