The 59th edition of the World Cup of Golf will return to Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, with The Metropolitan Golf Club, one of the best-conditioned and most beautiful courses in the country, playing host to 28 two-person teams representing their respective countries on November 21 to 25, 2018. As one of five events co-sanctioned by the International Federation of PGA Tours, the Melbourne World Cup of Golf is a truly global and historic event, which has been played 58 times since 1953 in 25 countries, and is the only event that sees the world’s best come together and compete for their countries, outside of the Olympics. The 2018 event will mark the sixth time in the tournament’s history that it will be played in Australia, which is the second-most all-time behind the United States (11), and third consecutive in Melbourne. Twenty-One World Golf Hall of Fame members have at least one World Cup of Golf title on their resumes, including the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Tiger Woods.
