The PGA Tour announced Monday that the 2028 Presidents Cup has been awarded to Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia.

The club is consistently ranked among the best courses in the world and is listed No. 2 behind Royal Melbourne G.C for Golf Digest’s Best Courses in Australia. Kingston Heath has been the site for seven Australian Opens, the Australian Masters and the 2016 World Cup of Golf. Tiger Woods, Gary Player and Adam Scott are among those who have won tournaments at the club.

“On behalf of the PGA Tour, we are excited to bring the 2028 Presidents Cup to Kingston Heath Golf Club as we further cement the history and future of this event in the great city of Melbourne,” said Matt Rapp, PGA Tour senior vice president of championship management. “The Sandbelt region is home to some of the game’s most iconic venues, and Kingston Heath has proven to be a world-class host for a number of golf’s biggest tournaments. We are looking forward to contesting an incredible Presidents Cup that Australians can take tremendous pride in, showcasing Kingston Heath to golf fans around the world.”

The tour had previously designated Australia for the 2028 and 2040 matches, but a site had not been announced. This will be the fourth time the Presidents Cup has visited Australia, with Royal Melbourne hosting the first three.

Next year’s Presidents Cup will be contested at Royal Montreal G.C. in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Other future venues include Medinah C.C. in 2026 outside of Chicago and Bellerive C.C. in St. Louis in 2030
