Make the Ryder Cup’s Shrimp & Grits in your kitchen




Melt-in-your mouth.

The Ryder Cup Lounge touts the Shrimp & Grits as one of its signature dishes for a reason.

If you’re too far away to stop by the restaurant for your fix, consider making them at home.

Our chefs share the recipe, which makes four servings.
