The PGA of America announced today that the Ryder Cup is heading back to Hazeltine National Golf Club in 2028 for the 47th edition of the biennial matches.
The private golf club in Chaska, Minnesota will become the first American venue to host a second Ryder Cup.
The 2016 matches were held at Hazeltine where a Sunday duel for the ages between Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy headlined an historic tournament that saw the United States defeat Europe for the first time since 2008.
Four English courses have hosted multiple Ryder Cups: The Belfry (1985, ’89, ‘93, 2002); Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club (1961, ‘77); Royal Birkdale Golf Club (1965, ’69) and Southport and Ainsdale Golf Club (1933, ’37).
Designed by Robert Trent Jones in 1962 and reconfigured by his son, Rees Jones (2002 and 2005), Hazeltine National Golf Club is named after nearby Lake Hazeltine.
The par-72 layout blends the rolling hills, lakes, mature woods and prairies of the Upper Midwest and is consistently ranked amongst America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.
Hazeltine is also scheduled to host its third women’s major championship, the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, June 18-23, 2019.
