The PGA of America, Ryder Cup Europe and PGA Tour have collaborated to establish future Ryder Cup Venues through to 2030.
After the 2020 Ryder Cup was postponed to 2021, the tournament organisers have sought to solidify its venues and they have done so in a concerted fashion. The 43rd edition was scheduled for 22 – 27 September at Whistling Straits Golf Course in Wisconsin, USA, but it has been delayed by a year; the new dates are 21 – 26 September 2021, still at Whistling Straits. The Covid-19 pandemic is the sole cause of all PGA Tour delays for 2020, and the Ryder Cup was no exception. To date, the US has experienced 14 million Covid-19 cases and almost 275 thousand deaths in 2020. A number of PGA Tour members contracted the disease and were forced to miss major events, including World Number 1. Dustin Johnson, who missed the CJ Cup in May but and went on to win the US Masters in November. The event was played eight months after the original date, and it is expected to return to its normal April slot in 2021.

History/Future of the Ryder Cup
The Ryder Cup was established in 1927 at Worcester Country Club in Massachusetts and was run biennially on odd years. The tournament was originally contested by Team USA and Team Great Britain until 1971 when Ireland joined Great Britain to form Team Great Britain & Ireland against Team USA. From 1979, that grew to include continental Europe, where the matches have been played on an increasingly level playing field. In 2001, the 34th rendition was delayed to 2002 and the subsequent Ryder Cups were played biennially on even years. The 2020 delay to 2021 has shifted the subsequent tournaments back to odd years from 2021. See the 2021 event here. For more information on Ryder Cup venues past 2030, see here.
