The Netherlands is to host the Solheim Cup for the first time in 2026, with Bernardus Golf named as the venue for the biennial contest.

Bernardus Golf, located in Cromvoirt close to Eindhoven, opened in 2018 and has hosted the Dutch Open on the DP World Tour on two occasions, with it scheduled to be that tournament’s venue once again in 2023.

The Championship course, designed by renowned American golf course architect Kyle Phillips, is a heathland golf course with tricky water hazards, a compact layout, an architecturally stunning clubhouse and world-class practice facilities.

The Bernardus Solheim Cup bid was supported by the Royal Dutch Golf Federation (NGF), with the ambition to deliver a world-class Solheim Cup and create a benchmark in women’s sports events and leave a long-term positive legacy for Bernardus, Dutch golf, the Netherlands and local community.

Robert van der Wallen, the owner of Bernardus and the chairman of PSV Eindhoven, said: “We are very excited to be hosting the Solheim Cup in 2026 and to partner with the Royal Dutch Golf Federation, IMG, the LET and LPGA. The opportunity to host such a globally significant sports event is a huge honour for our whole team. Experience is what we are all about at Bernardus and our preparations are already under way to ensure we play our part in providing the stage to host a best-in-class Solheim Cup experience in September 2026.”

With more than 420,000 golfers, golf is the fourth most popular sport in the Netherlands and this number is still growing.
