The 2017 Solheim Cup will be held at the Des Moines Golf and Country Club in Iowa.

The biennial event between the top women of Europe and America was last held in Colorado last month, with Europe winning 18-10.

The Des Moines Golf and Country Club hosted the US Senior Open Championship in 1999, drawing more than 250,000 fans.

Metro Des Moines has also hosted a Champions Tour event, the Principal Charity Classic, since 2001.

Though that tournament moved from Glen Oaks Country Club in West Des Moines to the Wakonda Club near downtown Des Moines this year, it remained among the more well-attended events on the senior tour.
