Ryder cup to return to European mainland in 2018

Six countries – France, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Sweden – have announced their intention to bid for the 2018 Ryder Cup. The deadline for the submission of bids is the end of April next year, with the announcement expected in 2011. Celtic Manor in Wales will host the event in 2010, while Gleneagles in Scotland plays host in 2014.

“We have set the date by which bids must be received in order to provide each country with the optimum opportunity in the current economic climate to present their strongest possible bid,” said European Ryder Cup director, Richard Hills. “In setting the sporting and commercial criteria that will be used to assess bids, we have been quite clear that each country bid must be channelled through its national golf federation and that no bids from individual venues will be considered. Assuming that all necessary criteria are met, the 2018 Ryder Cup will be played in mainland Europe.”
