Gleneagles to host 2019 Solheim Cup

Last Updated April 19 2017, 13:52Golf

The 2019 Solheim Cup at Gleneagles will take place from September 13 to 15 that year, the Ladies European Tour has confirmed.

Scotland had already won the right to host the biennial contest in 2019 between Europe and the United States, which will take place on the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles in Perthshire.

"The Solheim Cup has a long, rich heritage like no other event in women's golf and we are thrilled to announce the dates for our next home match at Gleneagles in Scotland," said LET chairman Mark Lichtenhein.

"Since we launched the competition in 1990 with the Solheim family and the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association), the event has grown significantly in prominence and profile and today is a strong, world recognised brand.

"As a tour, we recognise that golf is the only Olympic sport that Europe plays together as a team and take a huge amount of pride in bringing Europe's leading female golfers to compete in The Solheim Cup."

Gleneagles hosted the Ryder Cup in 2014, while this year's Solheim Cup is scheduled for August 14-20 at Des Moines Country Club in Iowa, where the US will bid to retain the coveted Waterford Crystal prize.
