Cape Town - The 2022 Ryder Cup at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Italy will take place from September 30-October 2, 2022.

It will be the first time the Ryder Cup has been played in Italy, which will host the biennial contest between Europe and the United States.

The 2022 contest will include three build-up days from the Tuesday, September 27 to Thursday, September 29.

The dates were confirmed on the same week of the European Tour's Italian Open, which gets underway on Thursday at Olgiata GC in Roma.

Marco Simone, which is on the outskirts of the Italian capital Rome, is currently undergoing an extensive renovation programme in preparation for hosting golf's greatest team contest.

Alongside work to the course, the clubhouse and practice facilities will also be fully refurbished, to allow Marco Simone to host the Italian Open in autumn 2021.

Gian Paolo Montali, General Director of the Ryder Cup 2022 Project, said: "Our commitment for The Ryder Cup 2022 project is not only to host an iconic sport event, but also to leave a legacy for Italy and the Italian people. With the work being carried out at Marco Simone, the 2022 Ryder Cup course will become a sporting 'pilgrimage' site that will continue to attract golfers for many years and will help develop to economic income through golf tourism.

"We are ambitious and these images give fans around the world a taste of what they can expect in September 2022. Today marks another important step in our journey towards hosting Italy's first Ryder Cup with the announcement of the dates and we must say thank you once again to Franco Chimenti. He is the one who had the vision and the courage to bring this fascinating competition to Italy."
