Posted by on   /   Posted in golf reviews

Europe claimed a famous victory in the 2019 event

Finca Cortesin in Andalusia will host the 2023 Solheim Cup – Spain's first time to host the match between Europe and the United States.

Spain becomes the sixth European country to host the largest women's golf team event.

The country hosted the Ryder Cup in 1997, in Valderrama, and hosted 75 events during the Ladies European Tour and its development tour.

The dates for the event have yet to be finalized.

Finca Cortesin, where Nicolas Colsaerts won the World Match Play in 2012, was designed by American architect Cabell Robinson and is considered one of the best -10 courses in Spain.

"We are delighted to announce" Spain is a passionate golf country with experienced fans, "said Ladies European Tour CEO Alexandra Armas.

Spain will host the Solheim Cup in 2023 when it returns to European soil and a history of developing generations of talented golfers, while Andalusia's strong cultural heritage will provide a unique experience for players, guests and supporters alike. "

Europe is the reigning champion after winning the 2019 match in an exciting way in Gleneagles, Scotland, when Suzann Pettersen won the last singles match won on the course by putting a two and a half meter putt on the 18th green.

Catriona Matthew will again be the captain of Europe when the squad travels to America in 2021 for the game at Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio, September 4-6.

Seven Spanish golfers have played in the Solheim Cup since the inaugural event in 1990, with Carlota Ciganda taking part in the last four games, while Azahara Munoz has also played four times since her debut in 2011.
