Bethpage Black is sure to make a *stunning* Ryder Cup venue.
The Ryder Cup is one of golf’s best traditions, but how did it become that way? History is a factor. With the conclusion of the 2021 Cup at Whistling Straits, there have been 43 editions of golf’s biennial match play event. But an equally important factor? Venue.
Of the greatest moments in Ryder Cup history, venue factors into all of them. The Ryder Cup wouldn’t be the Ryder Cup without its travels to many of the greatest courses in the United States and Europe.
