Report: Seminole G.C. to host 2021 Walker Cup


SHARE THIS STORY

One of America's most private clubs will open its doors to some of the world's most talented amateurs in 2021.

According to a Golf World report, Seminole G.C. in Juno Beach, Fla., will host the 2021 Walker Cup, the biennial matches pitting a team of 10 American amateurs against 10 amateurs from Great Britain and Ireland. The occasion will mark the first time the club has hosted a public competition since it opened in 1929.

Seminole president Jimmy Dunne was the driving force behind convincing his board and the USGA of the idea. According to the report, Dunne was motivated by the ease with which National Golf Links of America hosted the matches this September.



In the latter stages of his career, Ben Hogan descended upon Seminole to prepare for the Masters. The club's legendary pro-member, held each year after the Honda Classic, attracts a world-class field, including many top-ranked PGA Tour players.

The Walker Cup venues through 2019 include: Royal Lytham & St. Annes (2015), Los Angeles Country Club (2017) and Royal Liverpool (2019).
