Scotland outbid Sweden to host 2019 Solheim 

Cup at Glorious Gleneagles
Gleneagles will host the Solheim Cup in 2019, marking the third time Scotland will be home to the biennial women’s competition between the United States and Europe.
The Ladies European Tour made the announcement of its selection Thursday.
The Scottish bid won out in the final process over Sweden’s bid to host at the Bro Hof Slott Club outside Stockholm.
“It was an extremely close decision,” LET chief executive Ivan Khodabakhsh said.
The PGA Centenary Course at the Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire was also host to the Ryder Cup last year.
“The outstanding success of 2014 still looms large in the memory,” Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland, said in a statement. “I am delighted that Gleneagles and Scotland will once again play host to a major international team golf event. It will help cement Scotland’s reputation as the home of golf and the perfect stage for major golf events and help inspire a new generation of children to take up the game invented in their home country.”

We are delighted to announce that Gleneagles has been selected as The Host Venue for The 2019 Solheim Cup - the biggest event in women's golf. 
The tournament will take place on The PGA Centenary Course: the same course which saw Europe triumph in last year's Ryder Cup. 
The news comes just one week after it was confirmed that Gleneagles will also play host to the inaugural European Golf Team Championships in 2018, the first joint professional men’s and ladies golf competition to be staged. 
Bernard Murphy, Gleneagles' Managing Director, commented:
“We are extremely proud to be chosen as The Host Venue for The 2019 Solheim Cup. Gleneagles has a great history of holding major international events and we are delighted to be able to add The Solheim Cup to that list. We look forward to welcoming the teams and spectators from both sides in 2019 to take part in what we are sure will be yet another memorable event.”

Dates for The Matches have still to be confirmed and we will let you know as soon as this has been announced.
