The Ladies European Tour moves to Killeen Castle near Dublin this week for the Ladies Irish Open, hosted by Fáilte Ireland, which is effectively a dress rehearsal for The Solheim Cup.
This week’s event will see all of Europe’s top players attempt to shine in front of Captain Alison Nicholas on the course that will host the biennial transatlantic match play event in seven weeks’ time, from September 23-25.
There are three potential American team members in the field, who will be feeding information about the course back to the United States Captain Rosie Jones before she names her team on August 21.
Turfgrass Consultancy have been on site throughout the advance and event week to oversee golf course preparations and liaise between the Tournament Director, Chief Rules Official and Golf Course Superintendent. Following the Ladies Irish Open preparations will commence immediately for Solheim Cup in less than 7 weeks.
Ladies Irish Open highlights will be broadcast on August 5th, 6th and 7th at 11pm on Sky Sports HD 1.
