Where Is The Solheim Cup Being Played?

The 2023 Solheim Cup is being played at Finca Cortesin in Andalucia, Spin, which overlooks the Costa Del Sol and is one of Europe’s best courses.

The European team will be looking to make history with a third straight win against 12 of the best American players from the LPGA Tour.

The par-72 layout which measures 7,500 yards is sure to provide an interesting place to play golf, having hosted multiple European Tour events including the Volvo World Match Play Championship.

First opened for play in 2005 and designed by Cabell B. Robinson, the championship layout is a pretty special place to play and experience golf.

Solheim Cup 2023 will take place in Spain for the first time ever and will become the 6th European country to host the event since it began in 1990.

Future Solheim Cup Venues

The 2024 Solheim Cup returns to an even-numbered year from 2024, with the idea that it was alternate years with the Ryder Cup like it did previously.

The 2024 event returns to the USA and Gainesville, Virginia. The Robert Trent Jones course has played host to many team events in the past, having been the venue for the first four USA President Cups.

In 2026 the Solheim Cup heads back to continental Europe, with The Netherlands hosting the event for the first time. It’s a golf course fit for big events, having hosted the men’s Dutch Open on two occasions and is a fabulous heathland layout.

  • 2024 – Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, USA
  • 2026 – Bernardus Golf Club, Netherlands

Despite hosting the 1997 Ryder Cup at Valderrama Golf Club, the 18th showing of the Solheim Cup will be the first time the event has been hosted in Spain.

Since the first Solheim Cup in 1990, the match-play tournament has been played at some of the best golf courses in the world in some iconic locations:

  • 2021 – Inverness Club, USA
  • 2019 – Gleneagles, Scotland
  • 2017 – Des Moines, USA

There’s been many great stories in the tournament’s history, with plenty of controversies to add to the drama.

Who could forget the 2015 ‘Gimme Gate’ at St Leon Rot Golf Club in Germany, where confusion over a gimme putt led to a feisty final-day comeback from Team USA.

Or the Eagle that never was, in the 2021 match at Inverness Club, where Nelly Korda’s putt was conceded as Birdie but deemed that Team Europe hadn’t waited long enough for it to potentially fall into the cup for Eagle.

Final Thoughts

There’s nothing quite like the competition of team golf events and the Solheim Cup is one of the best you can watch.

The best golfers from the LPGA Tour and Ladies European Tour, competing over three days for nothing more than national pride and the chance to get one over your sporting rivals.
