Rome - The Italian Golf Federation will bid to hold the 2022 Ryder Cup at Marco Simone club just outside Rome.

Located in Guidonia, northeast of Rome, Marco Simone hosted the 1994 Italian Open won by Eduardo Romero of Argentina.

The federation says on Wednesday its choice followed a consultation with IMG.

Italy is one of seven European countries that have expressed an interest in hosting the 2022 event.

The European Tour announced in September that notifications were also received from Austria, Denmark, Germany, Portugal, Spain and Turkey.

Ryder Cup officials will undertake inspection visits before the end of the year.

Formal submissions must be made by mid-February, and the winning bid will be announced later in 2015.
