The Opening Ceremony Day will be packed with live entertainment, music and the official unveiling of the teams on stage. Join us to kick off the event in style!
We have an amazing day of entertainment and activities lined up for you to ensure The 2019 Solheim Cup starts with a bang. The Main Stage in the Spectator Village will host an exciting line-up of stars, including world-famous bands Texas, Bjorn Again and Elephant Sessions plus Highlands dance group Flings and Things, Morrison’s Academy Pipe Band, DJs from Glasgow’s Pretty Ugly Club and Scottish girl group FARA.
Hosted by well-known sports presenters Andrew Cotter and Di Dougherty, it will also feature the official welcomes, speeches from the Captains and the official introduction of the two teams before Friday morning’s pairings are revealed – all in front of a live television audience around the world.
The Spectator Village will be a hive of activity, buzzing with all the fantastic activities which will appeal to people of all ages. Got children in your party? Head to the Kids’ Zone complete with crazy golf, soft play area and mini ride-on tractors. Fancy swinging a club?
