The UK Government has set its sights on hosting the Ryder Cup, with a host of golf courses keen to stage the historic biennial event.

The Ryder Cup has not been played on UK soil since Gleneagles hosted the European clash with their American rivals, in which the home side won comfortably. Team Europe has since been hosted in France and Italy, and will next head to Adare Manor in Ireland in 2027.

However, there are now hopes that the famous showdown will return to the UK in 2031 and 2035, with the current UK government keen to launch a bid.

The plan comes as part of UK Sport's hopes to organize more high-level sporting events across the country. Simon Morton, deputy chief executive of UK Sport, said: “Live sport is an essential part of the social fabric of this country.

“No other country buys more tickets per capita to major sporting events than the UK. In the coming years, we want to host a program of live sport that resonates with British audiences and makes a difference to the lives of millions of people.”

The news comes after Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa received a boost in its hopes of staging the event last month.
