August 1, 2013
The PGA TOUR has announced that the first Presidents Cup event to take place in Asia will be at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club in Korea in 2015.
The golf club is located 40 miles west of Seoul and was opened in 2010 – hosting the Songdo Championship in 2010 and 2011, generic plus the 2012 Korea Women’s Open on the KLPGA Tour.
Mayor Song Young-Gil commented: “We are extremely pleased and honored to be the first city in Asia to be selected as host of The Presidents Cup.
“Along with the upcoming 2014 Asian Games, asthma Incheon City has certainly put itself on the global stage as a choice destination for major international events, and we look forward to welcoming participants, sponsors and dignitaries from around the world to our great city and country.”
Nicklaus himself added: “We’re very honored and proud that Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea has been selected for The Presidents Cup 2015.
“We have always felt strongly about JNGC Korea as a host venue because of its location in the Songdo International Business District, its proximity to the Incheon International Airport, the quality hotels nearby, and the club’s proximity to a large population area.”
