Dun Laoghaire Club to host 2016 Curtis Cup

The 2016 Curtis Cup will be held at Dun Laoghaire Club in Ireland.

Officials made the announcement after Britain-Ireland beat the United States 10 1/2 to 9 1/2 in the Curtis Cup.

Ireland has staged the biennial women's amateur team event only once since the Curtis Cup started in 1932. The Killarney Golf and Fishing Club hosted the event in 1996 when Britain-Ireland won for a third straight occasion.

Dun Laoghaire is located on the east coast of Ireland, 7 miles from Dublin.
