Spain to host Solheim Cup for first time in 2023


The Solheim Cup is headed to Spain for the time in 2023, the Ladies European Tour announced. While the dates haven’t been set, the event will be held at Finca Cortesin, Andalucía. Spain also hosted the 1997 Ryder Cup at Valderrama Golf Club.

With the 2020 Ryder Cup pushed back to next year, the next two Solheim and Ryder Cups will take place in the same year on the same side of the world.

The 2021 Solheim Cup will be held at Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio, next September, three weeks ahead of the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits. The 2023 Ryder Cup will be held Sept. 29 to Oct. 1, just 10 miles outside of Rome.

Spain becomes the sixth European country to host the Solheim Cup, joining Scotland, Wales, Sweden, Ireland and Germany. The Finca Cortesin previously staged three Volvo World Match Play Championships and underwent an upgrade of all putting surfaces in 2017.

Spain’s Carlota Ciganda finished in the top 3 of last week’s KPGM Women’s PGA Championship and has participated in the last four consecutive Solheims. Compatriot Azahara Munoz also has four Solheim appearances since 2011.

The Solheim Cup was first staged in Florida in 1990 and named after club manufacturer Karsten Solheim, who was the driving force behind its inception. Europe won the last staging at Gleneagles in spectacular fashion, with Suzann Pettersen holing the winning putt and promptly announcing her retirement.
