Due to the Coronavirus pandemic attendance, including all players, caddies and officials, will be limited to 1,850. Match tickets costing $500 were put on sale by the USGA on 1st April 2021 and were sold out within two weeks.
The USGA officially confirmed Seminole as their 2021 venue on 15th December 2016. Tim Rosaforte of Golf Digest originally reported on 11th November 2013 that this ultra exclusive Floridian course had been provisionally earmarked.
This will be the first time the Donald Ross-designed Seminole, which has recently been renovated by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, will have fully opened its doors to the general public since its establishment in 1929.
It will also be the first time Seminole will have hosted a USGA event and the first time the match has been contested in Florida. The stormy Autumn East Coast weather not lending itself to this traditional end of season event. As a result of the above 2021 will be the first time the match will be played in the Spring in the USA.

It’s not easy to top the announcement of Seminole as your 2021 venue but the USGA managed to do it when they also announced on 15th December 2016 that the Cypress Point Club in California had agreed to host the 2025 match.
Cypress Point was designed by Alister MacKenzie in partnership with Robert Hunter and like Seminole opened for play in 1929. Located alongside the Pacific Ocean it is of course one of the most picturesque and photographed golf courses in the world.
In February 2020 Golf Digest posted this hole-by-hole drone footage of the famous course.
