Medinah to host 2026 Presidents Cup, report says

The Chicago-area club will replace Harding Park, which is expected to host a Steph-Curry led PGA Tour event, Golf Channel reports

Reported: By GolfChannel.com’s Rex Hoggard, that Medinah (Ill.) Country Club’s No. 3 Course will replace TPC Harding Park as host of the 2026 Presidents Cup. According to the Tuesday afternoon report, which cited multiple unnamed sources familiar with the agreement, the Chicago-area course will undergo a renovation led by former U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy’s design company ahead of the biennial matches. Medinah No. 3 has played host to a number of big events: U.S. Opens in 1949 (won by Cary Middlecoff), 1975 (Lou Graham) and 1990 (Hale Irwin); the 1999 and 2006 PGA Championships (both won by Tiger Woods); and the 2012 Ryder Cup, which Europe rallied to win after trailing the Americans by four points entering final-day singles matches. Harding Park, the site of this year’s PGA won by Collin Morikawa, pulled out of the 2026 Presidents Cup to become a regular PGA Tour stop for an event to be hosted by Steph Curry of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors, according to the San Francisco Chronicle’s Ron Kroichick. The Presidents Cup has reverted to an even-numbered-year schedule after the Ryder Cup reclaimed its position in odd-numbered years when COVID-19 prompted cancellation of this year’s Ryder Cup. The 2022 Presidents Cup is scheduled for Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C., and the 2024 matches will be played at Royal Montreal. The U.S. has won eight consecutive matches against the Internationals and leads the series, 11-1-1.
