Barcelona Golf PGA Catalunya

We at Barcelona Golf are delighted to announce that PGA Golf de Catalunya has been

chosen as candidate to represent Spain as candidate for the Ryder Cup in 2022.

 

Real Federación Española de Golf, along with Generalitat de Catalunya and other

public Spanish and Catalan stakeholders, have announced their intention to bid to

bring The 2022 Ryder Cup, the golf biggest confrontation between Europe and United

States that will take place, if elected, at PGA Catalunya Resort (Girona), recently

awarded European Golf Resort of the Year 2015.

 

The Real Federación Española de Golf is working hardly with stakeholders from across

Spain and Catalunya, including the Sports Council of Spain (CSD), Generalitat de

Catalunya, PGA Catalunya Resort, Diputación de Barcelona, Diputación de Girona,

Patronat de Turisme Costa Brava Girona, City of Barcelona, City of Girona, City of

Caldes de Malavella and the Federación Catalana de Golf, to elaborate the bid dossier

for the European Tour Selection Committee before April 30th, 2015.

 

Gonzaga Escauriaza, President of the Real Federación Española de Golf said: “Few

countries in the world have contributed as much to the development and promotion of

European golf as Spain has over the last 30 years. Bringing The Ryder Cup to Spain is a

central part of our strategy and will continue our proud PGA European Tour heritage.

The Ryder Cup’s power to drive participation amongst new players and showcase our

world class courses across the globe is unique. We are delighted to have received so

much committed support from stakeholders and we look forward to submitting a

compelling bid to the European Tour.”

 

Iván Tibau, Secretary General for Sport, Generalitat de Catalunya said; “The world

cities of Barcelona and Girona will be the gateways for golf fans from across the globe

to experience the world leading cultural attractions, hospitality and landscape of the

region. We have a world class venue, established infrastructure and an unparalleled

track record of delivering the world’s largest events. We should be very confident in

our credentials and our ability to meet all of the requirements of a modern Ryder Cup.

All of our regional partners recognise the wide ranging benefits that The Ryder Cup

will bring to the region – our bid committee is unified in their commitment to bring The

2022 Ryder Cup to Catalunya.”

 

Denis O’Brien, PGA Catalunya Resort proprietor, said, From its inception, the Stadium

Course was designed and built with the intention to one day host The Ryder Cup.

Hosting the 2022 match would be the realisation of this vision. We have worked

extremely hard and invested significantly in recent years to make PGA Catalunya

Resort unique. It is much more than a golf resort; it is a global golf destination. We

have plans to further develop our courses and luxury property offering to introduce to

the world the next generation of golf resort. This bid has our full commitment.”

 

About Candidature

Readily accessible from the world renowned cities of Barcelona and Girona, the PGA

Catalunya Resort has been voted Spain’s No. 1 golf course for 3 consecutive years and

was recently awarded the title of European Golf Resort of the Year 2015 by the

International Association of Golf Tour Operators.

 

Barcelona and Girona are connected by a high speed rail line, transporting passengers

between the two cities in just 37 minutes.

 

The beaches and holiday resorts of the Costa Brava are a short 25 minutes drive from

the course.

 

Catalunya has an extensive track record of hosting the world’s largest events. In the

last 12 months, the region has hosted Formula 1’s Spanish Grand Prix, golf’s Open de

España, MotoGP, the FIBA Basketball World Cup and the FINA World Championships.

 

About The Ryder Cup

The 2022 Ryder Cup will be the XLIV edition of this biennial competition –started in

1927- between teams from Europe and the United States. Until 1979 there were only

British golfers in the European Team, and from then, continental European golfers

were included in the team.

 

Since then, nine edition of The Ryder Cup have been played in United States, five in

England, one in Ireland, Wales, Scotland and another one in Spain (Valderrama 1997).

Next Ryder Cup will take place in Hazeltine National Golf Club (Chaska, Minnesota,

USA), 2016; Le Golf National (París, Francia), 2018; Whistling Straits (Kohler, Wisconsin,

USA), 2020.

 

BIDDING PROCESS

Six nations remain in the running to host The 2022 Ryder Cup

Ryder Cup Europe can announce that six nations have formally confirmed their

intention to submit a Bid for The 2022 Ryder Cup. From the list of seven nations who

initially expressed an interest in hosting what will be the 44th staging of the biennial

contest between Europe and the United States, Denmark has advised of its intention

not to proceed with a formal Bid leaving Austria, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain and

Turkey still in the running. Turkey’s formal notification to bid was accepted by Ryder

Cup officials and supersedes their earlier decision to withdraw.

 

Ryder Cup Director Richard Hills, said: “The Ryder Cup bidding process has a number of

important milestones and we very much look forward to working with the six bidding

nations, their representatives, and their national golf federations, in developing the

specifics of their respective 2022 bids.

 

“The key criteria we have in place ensure we evaluate each bid equally on both its

sporting and commercial merits, while allowing us to judge each bid fairly and

thoroughly.”

 

Having already taken delivery of an official information pack, the six bidding nations

will prepare to host a series of meetings and inspection visits by Ryder Cup Europe

officials between now and Thursday April 30, 2015, which is the date that formal

submission of official bids need to be made.

 

Following the series of inspections, a period of detailed analysis of each bid by a

management team working on behalf of Ryder Cup Europe – together with the

assistance of an independent panel of experts – will be undertaken, with the

announcement of the successful host country and venue for The 2022 Ryder Cup

planned for autumn 2015.
