St. Louis Bellerive To Host Presidents Cup

Bellerive Country Club will host another prestigious professional tournament of golf.

Wednesday’s announcement by the PGA Tour that Bellerive will host the 2030 Presidents Cup gave the St. Louis area its latest chance to stage one of the sport’s most prestigious events. Bellerive has hosted many other important events such as the 1965 U.S. Open and the 2004 U.S. Senior Open. It also hosted the 2008 BMW Championship and the 2013 Senior PGA Championship.

Jay Monahan, PGA Tour commissioner, awarded St. Louis the 2030 tournament. He praised the region’s enthusiasm for the game and its willingness to host big events. Monahan stated in a statement that the combination of St. Louis Country Club and Bellerive Country Club would make it a memorable experience for both fans and viewers around the globe.

The Presidents Cup pits players from the United States against their counterparts from non-European nations. The United States team won the most recent competition at The Royal Melbourne Golf Club in 2019. The Americans won every matchup, except two, and eight consecutively.

Bellerive was built in 1960 and renovated in the 2005 renovation. It will be the seventh U.S. venue to host the tournament, following Charlotte’s Quail Hollow Club (2022), and Chicago’s Medinah Country Club (2056).

“Bellerive is delighted to host the 2030 Presidents Cup, and once again showcases the best golfers from the world in St. Louis,” Rick Walsh, Bellerive president, said. It will be a wonderful event for the players and fans, as well as a celebration of St. Louis.
