In the fall of 2022 the Italian capital city of Rome will host the Ryder Cup for the first time. Italy will join Spain (1997) and France (2018) as the third European country to host golf’s greatest team event. Four countries participated in an exhaustive Bid Process to identify the best sporting and commercial decision for the 2022 host—Austria, Germany, Italy, and Spain. The event will take place at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club, only 17km from the center of Rome.

The Italian bid was strong, particularly in its pledge to undertake a complete reconstruction of Marco Simone to meet rigorous standards demanded by the Ryder Cup Europe. In addition, the Italian bid promised a sizeable commitment to the Italian Open—a €7 million prize fund for the championship for 11 years, beginning in 2017.


Keith Pelley, Chief Executive of the European Tour – the Managing Partner of Ryder Cup Europe – stated, “I would like to offer my congratulations to Italy whose bold and ambitious bid has seen them become the host nation for The 2022 Ryder Cup. History has shown time and again that The Ryder Cup is pure theatre with the players the stars, and there is no question that the Eternal City of Rome will provide a wonderful backdrop for one of the great occasions in world golf

“With Paris in 2018 and now Rome in 2022 being the respective host cities for Europe’s next two stagings of biennial contest against the United States, the magical appeal of The Ryder Cup is set to continue.”
