Gleneagles will host 2019 Solheim Cup renewal
THE 2019 Solheim Cup is to be played at Gleneagles after the Scottish course emerged victorious following a competitive bidding process.
The world famous PGA Centenary Course in Perthshire has been given the nod ahead of the The Bro Hof Slott Golf Club in Sweden.
Gleneagles successfully hosted the Ryder Cup in 2014 as Europe beat the United States for the sixth time in seven events and will now be the venue for what is considered the top team event in women’s golf.
The Solheim Cup also pits Europe against the USA and the US currently hold the trophy after launching an amazing comeback to win 14.5-13.5 in Germany last month.
Earlier this year, ten countries – Denmark, England, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and Wales – expressed an interest in hosting the event when it is next held in Europe four years hence.
