(SportsNetwork.com) - New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced on Tuesday that Bethpage State Park's Black Course will host The Barclays again in 2021 and 2027.
The Black Course, which opened in 1936, hosted the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Opens. The Barclays, the first FedExCup Playoff event, was first played there in 2012 and will again be contested there in 2016.
"Bethpage State Park is one of the best public golf courses in the nation, and we are proud to welcome The Barclays back for two more tournaments," Governor Cuomo said. "We look forward to welcoming golfers and spectators to these world-class competitions and urge them to also experience all that Long Island has to offer."
Tiger Woods (2002) and Lucas Glover (2009) won the two U.S. Opens contested on the Black Course, while Nick Watney claimed the 2012 Barclays.
"Today's announcement continues this tournament's stellar rotation of playing on some of the area's best courses. I'd like to thank the New York State Parks Department, Governor Cuomo and Parks Commissioner Rose Harvey for their partnership over the years at Bethpage State Park, which now extends well past the next decade," said PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem. "We're thrilled to bring the first event of the FedExCup Playoffs to such a well-respected and challenging course again in 2021 and 2027, and we look forward to announcing additional venues in the rotation in the near future."
The PGA of America announced last year that the Black Course will host the 2019 PGA Championship and the 2024 Ryder Cup.
Bethpage is one of a four-course rotation for the Barclays. Plainfield Country Club, Liberty National Golf Club and Ridgewood Country Club, which hosted in 2014 when Hunter Mahan won the title, are also part of the Barclays rotation.
