New York - Bethpage Black, one of America's top public golf courses, will host to The Barclays, a US PGA playoff event, in 2021 and 2027, New York governor Andrew Cuomo has announced Tuesday.
The state park layout that opened in 1936 has already hosted the 2002 US Open won by Tiger Woods and the 2009 US Open won by Lucas Glover.
The Barclays was first staged there in 2012 and also will be played there again next year.
"We are proud to welcome The Barclays back for two more tournaments," Cuomo said of the extension deal. "We look forward to welcoming golfers and spectators to these world-class competitions."
Bethpage Black will be busy in other years as well. The PGA of America has already awarded the course the 2019 PGA Championship and the 2024 Ryder Cup.
Bethpage will be part of a four-course rotation for the Barclays along with Plainfield Country Club, Liberty National Golf Club and Ridgewood Country Club, which hosted last year when Hunter Mahan won the title.
"Today's announcement continues this tournament's stellar rotation of playing on some of the area's best courses," US PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said.
