Walton Heath Golf Club in Surrey, England, will host the 2014 Palmer Cup, the Golf Coaches Association of America announced Wednesday.

The Palmer Cup – the annual Ryder Cup-style event that pits the best college players from the U.S. and Europe – will be held this year at Wilmington Country Club.

The Old Course at Walton Heath has hosted nearly 90 major amateur and professional events, including the 1981 Ryder Cup and The Senior Open Championship. The event will be held June 26-28, 2014.

The U.S. leads the Palmer Cup series, 8-7-1.

“Walton Heath Golf Club continues the Palmer Cup tradition of competition on the finest golf courses in the world,” said tournament chairman Jim Awtrey in a statement.
