Penley was selected to coach the U.S. team by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
Penley has coached the Tigers for 20 years, leading Clemson to its first national championship in 2003.
Being selected to coach the Palmer Cup is one of his greatest achievements, Penley said.
'Coaching a United States team at an event named in honor of Arnold Palmer is one of the greatest honors I can experience as a golf coach,' he said.
The competition will take place August 6-7 at Ballybunion Golf Club in County Kerry, Ireland.
