Royal Birkdale to host 2014 Women’s British
Monday, August 1, 2011
Royal Birkdale Golf Club will host the 2014 Ricoh Women’s British Open, the Ladies Golf Union and IMG announced July 27.
It is the sixth time that Royal Birkdale will host the Women’s British Open, most recently in 2010, when World No. 1 Yani Tseng won the title.
“Of course I am a little biased,” Tseng said, “but I think Royal Birkdale is an unbelievable course and I feel so proud to have won there. It has hosted so many great championships, and I look forward to returning there in 2014 where I hope I will win again.”
Said Michael Hadden, captain of Royal Birkdale Golf Club: “We are very much looking forward to the return of the Ricoh Women’s British Open in 2014. The positive feedback from our members and the spectators after last year’s championship was universal, and we look forward to welcoming the world’s best women back in 2014 to show us how it is done.”
