It’s almost 20 years away but the 2036 Ryder Cup venue has already been announced.

Congressional Country Club, in Maryland, will stage the 51st edition of the biennial battle between Europe and the USA – one of eight PGA of America sanctioned championships and events that it will play host to over the next two decades.

One of the most iconic courses in the United States, Congressional has an illustrious past, having hosted three editions of the US Open – most recently in 2011 when Rory McIlroy won his maiden major – as well as the 1976 US PGA Championship and the 1995 US Senior Open. It also staged 15 other PGA Tour events.
