Her er meldingen fra LET:
14 February 2019; Madrid, Spain: The Ladies European Tour continues to expand
its European footprint with the addition of a third tournament in Spain this
The ‘La Reserva de Sotogrande Invitational’ will be played at La Reserva Club,
Sotogrande, in San Roque, Cadiz, on 16 to 19 May, 2019.
The full-field event will play a key part in the race for European Solheim Cup
Team qualification and will mark the first of three visits to Spain for the LET
in 2019, followed by the Estrella Damm Mediterranean Ladies Open at Club de Golf
Terramar in Sitges and the season-ending Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de España
Femenino at Aloha Golf Club in Marbella.
The €300,000 tournament will be staged over Sotogrande’s newest championship
golf course, which is nestled between the Mediterranean Sea and the densely
wooded Andalusian hills, built on a birds’ nest escarpment with stunning vistas
across the coastline. Designed in 2003 by Cabell B. Robinson, the 18-hole
championship golf course is part of the next chapter in Sotogrande’s remarkable
story and the vision for a dynamic future.
Speaking at the formal announcement in Madrid, Marc Topiol, CEO of Sotogrande
SA, commented: “I’m glad we could reach an agreement to host an additional event
in the LET annual calendar and participate in this adventure, a very nice
complement of what is happening in Sotogrande on an ongoing basis. The idea was
very simple: we try to be ourselves, as La Reserva de Sotogrande, which is a
place for families. I think it is very important for us to support women’s
sports and women’s golf. Sotogrande, the destination and the company I’m
privileged to run, has been first in many things and we are very proud in
creating the first pro ladies’ event in Sotogrande. I hope it lasts for a long,
The Royal Spanish Golf Federation’s President, Gonzaga Escauriaza, commented: "Once
again, we are delighted to offer the headquarters of the RFEG, the home of
Spanish golf, to present this new Ladies European Tour tournament, La Reserva de
Sotogrande Invitational. Women’s golf is a top priority for us and we must thank
Sotogrande for its involvement in this great tournament, the Ladies European
Tour, with Mark Lichtenhein and Marta Figueras Dotti at the forefront, for
making our country the mainstay of the LET schedule, and Deporte & Business for
organising this event. We are sure that it will be a great success and, at the
same time, the best showcase for La Reserva, women's golf and Spain.”
Ladies European Tour CEO, Mark Lichtenhein, said: “We are thrilled to bring
Europe’s best female golfers to La Reserva and I would like to thank Marc Topiol
and Sotogrande S.A. for their vision in making this happen. La Reserva is a
unique community and we look forward to showcasing the resort, its
state-of-the-art facilities and its world class golf course through live
television and digital coverage in more than 150 countries on all four
“Spain’s commitment to women’s golf is second to none in Europe and our players
love coming to this very hospitable country, which is fast becoming a home from
home for them.”
The La Reserva de Sotogrande Invitational will be the first of nine European
stops on the 2019 Ladies European Tour international schedule and also the ninth
tournament of the year.
