The par 72 layout designed by Robert Trent Jones in 1962 and enhanced by his son, Rees Jones, in 2002 and 2005, Hazeltine National Golf Club was the site of the United States’ 17-11 victory in 2016.

Four English courses have hosted multiple Ryder Cups: The Belfry (1985, 1989, 1993, 2002); Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club (1961, 1977); Royal Birkdale Golf Club (1965, 1969) and Southport and Ainsdale Golf Club (1933, 1937).

Hazeltine has also twice hosted the U.S. Open (1970, 1991), PGA Championship (2002, 2009) and U.S. Women’s Open (1966, 1977).

This year’s Ryder Cup will be stage in France at Le Golf National outside Paris from Sept. 28-30.
