RSS

The best amateurs in the world will soon compete on another of America’s hidden treasures. 

This year, the Walker Cup returned to National Golf Links for the first time since 1922, when the first matches were played on C.B. Macdonald’s links-style course. 

On Monday, Golf World senior writer and Golf Channel insider Tim Rosaforte reported that the 2021 Walker Cup is headed to another of America’s most exclusive courses: Seminole Golf Club, in Juno Beach, Fla., which will host its first public competition since the club opened in 1929. 

Seminole’s president, Jimmy Dunne, was impressed by how National hosted the cup and convinced the board and USGA in less than two months, according to the report.

Upcoming venues for the biennial matches: Royal Lytham & St. Annes (2015), Los Angeles Country Club (2017) and Royal Liverpool (2019).
