As it was decided that the biennial Solheim Cup and Ryder Cup should move back to alternate years, this means the 2024 Solheim Cup will take place again next year in the USA at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Virginia from 10-14 September.

Both Solheim Cup captains Stacy Lewis and Suzann Pettersen and their respective teams will go head-to-head once again at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Virginia from 10-14 September.

Solheim Cup 2024 venue: Robert Trent Jones Golf Club

Located in the small town of Gainesville in Prince William County on Lake Manassas, just 35 miles west of Washington D.C, the prestigious private golf club, named after the legendary course designer, opened in 1991 and is considered to be one of his finest.

While it will be the first time a major women’s competition is held at the club, which is often referred to simply as RTJ, it was home to the first four Presidents Cups in the United States between 1994 and 2005 and has held multiple PGA Tour events over the years.

Players and fans will be treated to a breathtaking setting and the beauty of Lake Manassas, which takes centre stage on the course, especially along the back nine.

The course is known for its challenging layout and undoubtedly the par-3 9th hole with its peninsula green and the par-3 11th hole, which is played over the lake, will add moments of suspense and excitement to the Solheim Cup.

In classic Robert Trent Jones style, the course features expansive fairways, cleverly placed bunkers, and undulating greens, offering players numerous risk-reward opportunities, so overall it promises to be an excellent test of golf for the world's leading players from the USA and Europe.

Why is Solheim Cup in 2023 and 2024?

The Solheim Cup is on in back-to-back years in 2023 and 2024 mainly due to Covid-19 affecting golf's Major schedule.

The 2020 Ryder Cup had to be pushed back to 2021, meaning that both the Ryder and Solheim Cups took place in the same year.

That will change from next year, when the Solheim moves to even-numbered years and the Ryder Cup remains in odd-numbered years.
