Date set for Ryder Cup announcement - News - Lurgan Mail: "The venue for the 2018 Ryder Cup - a fight between France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and the Netherlands - will be announced on May 17.
It will be only the second time that the match has been staged in continental Europe after Valderrama on Spain's Costa del Sol played host in 1997. The official announcement, to be made at the European Tour's Wentworth headquarters, comes at the conclusion of the first formal bid process undertaken by Ryder Cup Europe, which commenced at the end of 2008.
Richard Hills, Ryder Cup director, said: 'It has been a hugely challenging and stimulating process, taking almost 18 months to complete.'
Sweden were also involved in the early stages, but pulled out last March for financial reasons and said they would focus on the 2022 match"
