2015 Walker Cup set for Royal Lytham and St. Annes

The 2015 Walker Cup will be held at the Royal Lytham and St.

Annes course in northwest England.

The links course has twice hosted the Ryder Cup and staged the

British Open 10 times.

The Royal & Ancient director of championships David Hill

says the course will “provide a stern test befitting a contest

that has come to represent the pinnacle of amateur

achievement.”

The biannual amateur match between the United States and a

combined Britain and Ireland team is scheduled for Scotland’s Royal

Aberdeen in 2011 and the National Links of America in New York on

2013.
