“Golf in the Sandbelt region speaks for itself, and we appreciate The Metropolitan Golf Club opening its doors for this historic team event.”

The format from will remained unchanged from the 2016 event where teams of two from each competing country will play four-ball on the first and third days with foursomes (alternate ball) played on the second and final days
