Pine Valley, New Jersey’s most exclusive golf course and one of the most exclusive in the country, will be holding a tournament for elite women golfers.

Pine Valley was recently named the number one golf course in the nation.

The august course will host the Curtis Cup in 2034; the Curtis Cup pits top amateur female golfers from the US versus top amateur female golfers from the UK.

Mike Whan, CEO of the USGA, told Golf Digest:

We are committed to bringing our championships to the finest golf courses in the country, and over the last several years, that commitment has only strengthened for our women’s championships.

Pine Valley, which only allowed female members two years ago, hosted the Walker Cup in 1936 and 1985.

The Walker Cup (for men) and Curtis Cup are patterned after the Ryder Cup, a series of matches between amateurs from the United States and Britain and Ireland.

According to a statement:

Pine Valley was founded with the mission of celebrating the best in amateur golf,” said club president Jim Davis, “so it’s only natural that we’d want to host the premier event bringing together the best women amateurs of Great Britain, Ireland and the United States. The membership cherishes our heritage with the Walker Cup and now looks forward to creating the same kind of history with the 2034 Curtis Cup.

The Curtis Cup Match, jointly run by the USGA and The R&A, is contested by two teams of eight female amateur players, one from the USA and one from Great Britain and Ireland.

It consists of six foursomes (alternate-shot) matches, six four-ball matches and eight singles matches over three days of competition. The USA leads the overall series, 31-8-3.
