Lahinch Golf Club will host the 2020 Arnold Palmer Cup.
The legendary Irish club, founded in 1892 and originally designed by Old Tom Morris and redesigned by Alister MacKenzie in 1926, is consistently rated one of the top 50 courses in the world and will now be host to the 24th edition of one of the top team amateur events in golf.
“Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation is pleased the Arnold Palmer Cup will return to the west of Ireland for the 2020 matches at Lahinch Golf Club,” said Kevin Bingham, CEO of Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation. “Lahinch boasts a long and rich history. … We’re pleased that future college players and their junior caddies will enjoy this character building experience on one of the world’s finest links.”
The 2020 proceedings will be the third Arnold Palmer Cup under an expanded format where the U.S. top male and female college golfers will take on counterparts from around the world. The action at Lahinch Golf Club in 2020 will take place from July 3-5.
