Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio, is set to host the 2021 Solheim Cup.
According to multiple reports, the club will be formally named the host on Wednesday, with the club beating out Lancaster Country Club, host of the 2015 U.S. Women's Open, for the bid.
Lancaster Country Club president Ted Bloom wrote a letter to membership on Friday expressing disappointment.
“Despite fundraising that exceeded the totals of any previous Solheim Cup, I am disappointed to inform you that LCC was not selected to host the 2021 Solheim Cup. According to the LPGA, we finished a very close second to Inverness Club," he wrote.
Inverness Club hosted the 2011 U.S. Senior Open as its last big professional event. It has hosted the U.S. Open four times, including for the last time in 1979.
In 2017, Des Moines Golf and Country Club in Iowa will host the biennial matches, pitting the United States against Europe in a Ryder Cup format of matches.
