Huge Interest in Tickets for Solheim Cup at Finca Cortesín

19 Jan

Nine months out from the first Solheim Cup to be held in Spain, the biennial women’s team competition between Europe and the United States is already “smashing economic forecasts”. 

The event will be held from 22 to 24 September at Finca Cortesín, in Casares municipality on the Costa del Sol.  

According to the organisers, more than 45,000 tickets have been sold and the Solheim Pavilion is sold out, while the media impact of the project has exceeded €120 million euros “thanks to the different events and promotional work that has been carried out since it was announced in October 2020”.

More than half of the tickets sold (53 per cent) have been bought by UK and Irish spectators, followed by Spanish (21 per cent) and other EU nationalities (18 per cent).

“Another fact that is breaking all barriers is the ticket sales among fans from the United States. While in previous editions of the Solheim Cup held in Europe, only two per cent of the total number of tickets sold to the American public was sold, today the statistic has tripled to six per cent.”

Women’s Spanish Open at Las Brisas

Meanwhile, it has been announced that this year’s Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España will be played at Royal Las Brisas from 23 to 26 November. 

The Marbella club is one of Spain’s most renowned, with a venerable history as the host of numerous major international events, including the flood-shortened 1989 World Cup won by Australia’s Wayne Grady and Peter Fowler.

Last year’s edition of the women’s open, at Alferini in the Villa Padierna resort, was won by Swede Caroline Hedwell, while her compatriot Linn Grant secured the Race to Costa del Sol title for the highest ranked player on the 2022 Ladies European Tour.
