Ny turnering på LET

03.10 LET:
Ny turnering på Europa Touren for damer
Det ser ut til at interessen for europeisk damegolf er for oppadgående. Nå kommer det enda en ny turnering på programmet.

Den kommer allerede 5. - 8. desember 2019. Turneringen arrangeres på Baobab-banen på Vipingo Ridge, Kilifi County i Kenya.

Etter at terminlisten har skrumpet inn for noen år siden, har det i det siste kommet stadig nye turneringer med på terminlisten. Hyggelig!

Her er meldingen fra LET:

New LET Event in Kenya Announced
2nd October 2019
The Magical Kenya Ladies Open, a new tournament on the Ladies European Tour, will take place from the 5th to the 8th December 2019 on the Baobab Course at Vipingo Ridge, Kilifi County, Kenya, in collaboration with title sponsor Magical Kenya, presenting sponsor MPesa and Promoter U.COM Event GmbH.

Mohamed, Cabinet Secretary for the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Heritage, said: “We are pleased to host the Magical Kenya Ladies Open for the first time. lt is our hope and expectation that your participation will inspire other women to take up the sport and awaken their potential to play professionally. We warmly welcome all the players to Kenya and wish everyone a rewarding experience in our magical country.”

Broadcasted live across the globe to millions of viewers, the event will showcase Kenya as a unique golfing and holiday destination as well as elevate the country as an important player on the world’s stage, not just in terms of golf but sports in general.

Dirk Glittenberg, Managing Director of U.COM Event, explained: “Our long-term vision of bringing women’s professional golf to Kenya is finally becoming a reality. We are always striving to find new destinations for the Ladies European Tour and the Kenyan Coast will be a very memorable one for all players, their guests and TV spectators worldwide.”
