Solheim Cup headed to Spain for first time in 2023
One of the biggest events in women’s golf is headed to Spain, and for the first time. The Ladies European Tour announced on Tuesday that the 2023 Solheim Cup will be held on the championship course at Finca Cortesin in the Andalucía region of Spain.
“Spain is a passionate golfing nation with knowledgeable fans and a history of developing generations of talented golfers while Andalucía’s strong cultural heritage will make for a unique experience for players, guests and supporters alike,” said Alexandra Armas, the CEO of the LET. “The tournament will not only enhance the country’s reputation as an elite golfing nation but the Costa del Sol as a must-visit destination, which will help to inspire the next generation of children to take up the game.”
The Solheim Cup — a biennial event that pits the top American players vs. Europe’s best — was last played at Gleneagles in Scotland in 2019, with Europe winning a thrilling battle that came down to the final putt. The U.S. leads the all-time series 10-6.
The 2021 Solheim Cup is scheduled for Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio, which will be the 17th edition, setting the stage for the 18th in Spain come 2021.
