OUR COUNTRY. OUR TIME. WHO WILL REIGN? The 2016 UL International Crown, a biennial team match-play event featuring the top eight golfing countries and 32 of the top female golfers in the world, will take place at the prestigious Merit Club in Gurnee, Illinois. Competition between the countries will take place over four days from July 21-24. It will feature three days of four-ball competition and one day of singles matches on Sunday. Five of the eight countries will advance to the Sunday singles matches based on the outcome of the four-ball matches contested Thursday through Saturday. In 2014, Spain was crowned the event's first champion as the team of Beatriz Recari, Azahara Munoz, Belen Mozo, and Carlota Ciganda bested seven of the other top golf nations in the world en route to the crown. "We are looking forward to hosting the 2016 UL International Crown at the Merit Club," said UL CEO Keith Williams. "Our goal as title sponsor is to keep growing the stature of this one-of-a-kind international event and the Merit Club is a prestigious and beautiful golf course right in our backyard. We are interested in seeing which country will reign in 2016." Team USA 8 GOLF NOW! Chicago
