Australia's Karrie Webb triumphed over the famous Ailsa course when the tournament was last held there in 2002.

Webb said: "I am really pleased to hear that the Ricoh Women's British Open will be returning to Turnberry. I have wonderful memories of winning the 2002 Championship and I can't wait to return in 2015. Turnberry is one of the best courses I have played so I hope I can continue on from where I left off in 2002."

This year's event is being staged over the Old Course at St Andrews, with Royal Birkdale the venue in 2014.
