Fans in for a shock
The highly anticipated Ryder Cup is just around the corner, with golfing enthusiasts from both sides of the Atlantic eagerly awaiting the action. However, fans attending the event might want to think twice before heading to the refreshments stand, as the prices on the menu are enough to make anyone's eyes water.
If you were planning on starting your day at the Ryder Cup with a hearty breakfast, be prepared to shell out €9.90 (£8.62) for a breakfast roll or €5.50 (£4.79) for a pot of porridge. Vegetarians fare slightly better with the veggie roll priced at €9.50 (£8.27).
The hefty lunch bill
But the prices only go up from there. Hungry fans looking for a more substantial midday meal will have to fork over €23.90 (£20.80) for the chicken Milanese meal with a soft drink. And if you want an alcoholic drink instead, the price skyrockets to €27.40 (£23.85).
Location and challenges
The 44th edition of the Ryder Cup is taking place at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club on the outskirts of Rome, Italy. The picturesque course offers a mix of long and short holes, providing a challenge for the competitors.
The tournament will see Team Europe, led by golfing giants such as Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Victor Perez, and Viktor Hovland, facing off against Team USA, which boasts the talent of Scottie Scheffler, Max Homa, Brooks Koepka, and Xander Schauffele.

The action kicks off on Friday, with the opening ceremony taking place on Thursday. The final showdown will be on Sunday, as both teams give their all to claim victory in this prestigious competition.
No cameras allowed
Unfortunately for fans of Netflix's golf documentary series, Full Swing, there will be no footage from team meetings at the Ryder Cup. Team USA has voted to ban cameras from filming their discussions, keeping their strategies and tactics under wraps.
