The DuPage Airport will be a very busy place in September when some of the world's best golfers pass through for the Ryder Cup.

The airport will serve as the transportation hub for the athletes and media for the event slated for Sept. 25-30 at the historic Medinah Country Club.

The Ryder Cup is an international golf competition highlighting some of the finest players from the U.S. and Europe. The European team will be defending their title.

“From the moment the planes touch down in DuPage, travelers will be met with airport staff dedicated to ensuring a smooth and stress-free experience; including full on-site customs, liaison with transport and lodging, and 24/7 concierge service,” said David Bird, Executive Director of the DuPage Airport.

The U.S. Ryder Cup team will feature Tiger Woods, Phil Michelson and Bubba Watson, while the European team will feature Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald and Lee Westwood.
