The 28th Phoenix Cup is to be played over the Arden and Aylesford courses at the Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club in England from August 14-16, 2022.  

Four teams of disabled golfers will travel from around England, Scotland and Wales, to be joined by a squad from across the United States to compete over three days.

John Riordan of the Disabled Golf Association said: “We are very proud to be able to host the 4-Nations event in 2022, which will be an excellent opportunity to showcase disabled golf at a top venue. Many thanks to the Forest of Arden and the Marriott Group for their support of disabled golf
We would give special mention to Sandy Ganatra of One Golf Club for his continuing support. I’m sure the golf will be competitive but the real winner will be disabled golf.”
