ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – The 2015 Walker Cup will be held at the Royal Lytham and St. Annes 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 biennual 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. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
