THE SOLHEIM CUP IS THE PINNACLE OF WOMEN’S GOLF WITH THE BEST PLAYERS FROM EUROPE AND THE USA GOING HEAD-TO-HEAD IN MATCH PLAY FORMAT. THE 16TH EDITION OF THE EVENT PROMISES TO BE ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS ON THE WORLD’S SPORTING CALENDAR IN 2019.
First staged in Florida in 1990 and named after club manufacturer Karsten Solheim, who was the driving force behind its inception, The Solheim Cup is contested between two teams of 12 players over three days. It follows the same format as The Ryder Cup, with 28 matches – eight foursomes and eight fourballs over the first two days and 12 singles on the final day.
From 9th - 15th September 2019, the iconic venue of Gleneagles will be under the golfing spotlight as The Solheim Cup returns to Scotland, the ‘Home of Golf’ for the first time since 2000. The PGA Centenary Course, on which Europe sealed a thrilling Ryder Cup victory in 2014, continues its match play legacy, providing a stunning battleground amid the rolling Perthshire hills.
The event is not only about the world-class competition on the course, but promises to be a festival of entertainment, activity and fun, with something for everyone.
DAY ONE – four foursomes matches & four fourball matches
DAY TWO – four foursomes matches & four fourball matches
