Golf Ryder Cup 2022
Rome is all set to be the location of the prestigious international golf competition in 2022. This will be the first time that Italy has been chosen to host the event. The Marco Simone Golf and Country Club, 17 km from the centre of Rome, will follow in France's footsteps who will host the 2018 event. This 44th edition of the match between Europe and the United States will be staged in the autumn of 2022.
What is the Ryder Cup? It's one of the greatest sporting events named after its founder Samuel Ryder and takes place every two years, where 24 of the best players from Europe and the United States go head-to-head in 5 match play sessions over 3 days. So far the USA has had most wins.
Apart from Marco Simone there are 28 other golf clubs, resorts and driving ranges in the Lazio region.
It's too early to purchase tickets yet but we've included a link to the official Italian golf federation, where you can find all the information plus a list of the golf courses in Italy.
Thanks for stopping by.
We hope to see you in Rome soon!
