Scotland has won the right to host The Solheim Cup in 2019 and the 16th edition of the greatest team event in women's golf will be played at the world famous PGA Centenary Course at The Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire
After an extensive and very competitive bidding process, the final decision saw Scotland's submission up against a strong bid from Sweden, which nominated The Bro Hof Slott Golf Club as its proposed venue.
Earlier in the year, ten countries - Denmark, England, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and Wales - submitted expressions of interest in hosting the 2019 event, the next time it is held in Europe.
Following official site inspection visits to Gleneagles and Bro Hof Slott, the Ladies European Tour (LET) Evaluation Committee this week presented their recommendations to the LET Board for ratification.
Ivan Khodabakhsh, chief executive of Ladies European Tour said: "I want to congratulate the Scotland bid team for their work. It was an extremely close decision and our heartfelt thanks go to our friends from Sweden for their hugely impressive bid. The Bro Hof Slott Golf Club is one of Europe's very finest courses and we look forward to working with them in the future.
"The competitive nature of the bidding process for the 2019 event is testimony to the growth in interest in women's professional golf and women's sport in general. The Solheim Cup has grown to be the biggest event in the women's game delivering outstanding value to its partners at a local, national and international level."
