The 2019 Solheim Cup

Gleneagles, Scotland
13-15 September

It all leads to this moment

The Solheim Cup combines the tradition and prestige of the game of golf with passion for one’s country and continent. The 2019 Solheim Cup will be screened to more than 600 million homes worldwide and will see 100,000 people through the gates of Gleneagles during the course of the week. The match-play format aims to engage both the traditional golf audience as well as wider sports fans, raising the profile of women’s golf both in Scotland and internationally. European Captain and long-time Aberdeen Standard Investments Ambassador, Catriona Matthew, is looking to return the trophy to Europe in 2019 after an inspired USA team won 16 ½ to 11 ½ points in front of record crowds in Iowa in 2017. Organisers are aiming to set a new record for a European edition in 2019.
