Wilmington (Del.) Country Club has been announced as the 2013 Palmer Cup venue. The annual Ryder Cup-style competition between the best collegiate golfers from the United States and Europe will be played June 7-9 on the South Course. Robert Trent Jones is credited with the initial design and construction of the South Course. It underwent an extensive renovation in 2009, led by golf course architect Keith Foster.

“We’re very pleased to hold the Palmer Cup at Wilmington Country Club,” said Jim Awtrey, the Palmer Cup chairman. “The South Course is an outstanding match-play course and should provide a tough challenge. Wilmington is one of the finest clubs in America, has a long relationship with Arnold (Palmer) and continues the Palmer Cup tradition of playing at some of the world’s top venues.”

Wilmington Country Club hosted the 1965 U.S. Junior Amateur, ’71 U.S. Amateur, ’78 U.S. Junior and Girls’ Junior and the 2003 U.S. Mid-Amateur.

The U.S. leads the Palmer Cup series, 8-7-1.
