Out of the record 10 countries that put in a bid to host the 2019 Solheim Cup, only two remain. The Ladies European Tour announced Sept. 1 that Scotland’s Gleneagles and Bro Hof Slott Golf Club in Sweden will go head to head in the coming weeks for the chance to stage the biggest event in women’s golf. The final recommendation will be made to the LET board on Oct. 29, and an announcement will be made shortly thereafter.
Gleneagles, of course, hosted the 2014 Ryder Cup on its PGA Centenary Course. Bro Hof Slott Golf Club, located roughly 30 miles northwest of Stockholm, has hosted the European Tour’s Nordea Masters and will do so again in 2016.
The Solheim Cup will celebrate its 25th anniversary in Germany Sept. 18-20 when Team USA takes on Europe for the 14th staging of the biennial competition. The U.S. squad holds an 8-5 series lead.
