Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia, will host the 19th Solheim Cup in September 2024, the LPGA has announced.
Robert Trent Jones Golf Club opened in 1991 and is named after the course’s designer. The course hosted the first four Presidents Cup events in the United States and is located on Lake Manassas, 35 miles west of Washington D.C. This will be the first major women’s competition held at the club.
“It is a tremendous honor to be selected to host this prestigious event and believe our club is an ideal venue for this competition,” said George Cantrell, president of Robert Trent Jones Golf Club. “Under the leadership of Tournament Chair Penny Lee, our club and membership look forward to welcoming the top U.S. and European women golfers and fans from across the globe.”
Dates for the 2024 Solheim Cup will be announced as the LPGA Tour and the Ladies European Tour finalize schedules. The 2024 event will mark the competition’s return to an even-year rotation, opposite the Ryder Cup. It will be the second time in history it will be held in consecutive years, along with 2002 and 2003.
“We are honored and excited to bring the 2024 Solheim Cup to Robert Trent Jones Golf Club. RTJ has a strong tradition of hosting world-class international competitions, and we can’t wait to add the Solheim Cup, one of the flagship events in women’s golf, to the list,” said LPGA Commissioner Mollie Marcoux Samaan. “Playing the Solheim Cup on this magnificent golf course near our nation’s capital will provide the perfect backdrop for these elite athletes to battle for the Cup. I have no doubt that the club and its members will serve as wonderful hosts, and that fans from around the world will enjoy an experience of a lifetime.”
