About

The 47th biennial match between the amateurs of Great Britain and Ireland and the USA will be played in September 2019 at Royal Liverpool as the Club celebrates the 150th anniversary of its foundation.

Hoylake was the venue for a match between the USA and Great Britain in 1921 and the following year the first official Walker Cup match was played at the National Golf Links of America in Southampton, New York.

Hoylake is no stranger to top class amateur events having hosted The Amateur Championship on 18 occasions and the Curtis Cup in 1992.

The Walker Cup match is contested between teams of ten players from GB&I and the USA. It is played over two days with 18 singles matches and ten foursomes matches. The 2015 match was played at Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club, when GB&I were victorious 16.5 v 9.5. The 2017 venue will be the Los Angeles Country Club.

Many great players have taken part in the Walker Cup over the years including Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson for the USA and Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald and Graeme McDowell for GB&I.
