Presidents Cup to be Held at Royal Montreal Golf Club in 2024
The PGA Tour has announced that the 2024 Presidents Cup will be played at the Royal Montreal Golf Club in Canada.
Royal Montreal hosted the 2007 Presidents Cup, making it just the second international venue to host the Presidents Cup twice.
“The people of Canada are some of the most loyal and passionate sports fans in the world, and given the overwhelming success of the Presidents Cup in 2007, it was a natural next step for the event to return to The Royal Montreal in 2024,” said PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan in a statement.
The 2007 Presidents Cup at The Royal Montreal Golf Club saw Jack Nicklaus guide the U.S. Team to victory over Gary Player and the International Team by a score of 19 ½ – 14 ½.
“We are excited and more than pleased that we have been selected to host the Presidents Cup again, and we are thrilled that we will be welcoming the world’s best golfers to our club in 2024,” said Michael Richards, Chair of The Royal Montreal Golf Club’s bid committee. “Our club has experienced leadership and great members, and our goal is to make the 2024 Presidents Cup the best ever. With widespread support from leaders of the golf and business communities and from various levels of government and with the help of Tourisme Montreal, we are confident we will succeed.”
Graham DeLaet, Adam Hadwin and Mike Weir are the three Canadians who have competed in the Presidents Cup.
