76° ITALIAN OPEN GOLF
On December 14, 2015 Italy was awarded the right to host the Ryder Cup 2022, the most prestigious international golf competition.
The competition will take place in Rome and the official gaming venue will be the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, a Capitoline club owned by the Biagiotti family.
For Italian golf, being able to organize the Ryder Cup 2022 is a historic success, which decrees the entrance from the main door in the world's elite of this sport.
The victory takes on an even more significant value if you consider the level of the opponents outdated in the race to get the right to host the Ryder Cup 2022: these are countries with a great golfing tradition like Germany, Spain and Austria, not to mention Denmark and Turkey who decided after some time to withdraw the application.
Here are the reasons that prompted the Ryder Cup Commission to choose Rome in the words of Richard Hills, Director of the Bid Management Team of Ryder Cup Europe (pictured above, during the press conference held in Rome, in the "Salone d ' Honor "of the CONI, two days after the official announcement of the Italian victory):
"The Italian candidacy impressed us with its solidity in terms of infrastructural, commercial and government support, as well as the private sector. The programs to upgrade and enhance the game are literally spectacular, as is the commitment to the development of golf in the country at all levels. We can not wait to get to work together with the Italian team to give life to the 2022 edition ".
