 2017 PGA Cup contest for Foxhills, Surrey

Foxhills Club and Resort has been announced as the host venue for Great Britain and Ireland’s eagerly anticipated PGA Cup clash with the United States in 2017.
The Surrey club will stage the 28th playing of the matches which will be contested over three days in a Ryder Cup-style format from September 15-17.
GB and I, under newly appointed Lossiemouth-born captain Albert MacKenzie, will be bidding to retain the Llandudno Trophy following their thrilling, and historic, first triumph on US soil at CordeValle, California in 2015.
Foxhills, which features two championship courses - the Bernard Hunt and Longcross – is one of the leading resorts in the south of England and is the long-term venue for the Senior PGA Professional Championship.
Foxhills enjoys a long tradition of hosting elite level golf having staged a number of prestigious tournaments such as the European Tour’s Tournament Players Championship and the Tour’s Qualifying School where Open champion Sandy Lyle tasted victory.
PGA chief executive Sandy Jones commented: “Foxhills is a perfect venue for the PGA Cup with a great history and a fantastic course that will be ideal to showcase the talents of the leading PGA players from either side of the Atlantic.
“The victory in California last year has really whetted everyone’s appetite for this next chapter in this great event."
