Two players eligible for the PING Junior Solheim Cup 2023 – born in 2005 or later – will travel to Ohio in September to experience the competition first-hand.
Representing your country and continent in a major international competition such as the Solheim Cup, a duel between the women’s teams of Europe and the United States every two years, is a priority objective for any high-level player. Soaking up the atmosphere and spirit of the tournament is also a unique and incomparable experience.
All this will be available to the participants in the “Objetivo 2023” programme, an initiative promoted by the Spanish Golf Federation, in coordination with Deporte & Business, which will offer its best classified players the chance to experience a magical week at the Solheim Cup to be held this year in Toledo, Ohio (USA).
The RFEG and Deporte & Business have launched this programme to improve the performance of elite golfers and encourage competition among the youngest golfers with the option of qualifying for the European team of the PING Junior Solheim Cup 2023, which will be held on the Costa del Sol as a prelude to the Solheim Cup 2023 and will take place in Finca Cortesin, Andalusia, for the first time in history in September 2023.
To this end, throughout the 2021 season a ranking will be established to achieve all the objectives set within the programme, whose rules and operating system will be based on the criteria used by the RFEG Junior Technical Committee for the 2021 National Junior Ranking set out in RFEG Factsheet 65/2020 dated 23 December 2020.
The first two classified in the ranking at the end of the last round will enjoy a trip supervised by the Spanish Golf Federation to the PING Junior Solheim Cup 2021 to be held on 1 and 2 September in Ohio (USA), where they will share time and experiences with the European team of the PING Junior Solheim Cup 2021 and then feel the excitement of living the most important women’s competition in the world, the Solheim Cup, to be held from 4 to 6 September in Inverness Club.
The 2021 Ranking calendar includes four scoring events: the Ladies Spanish Championship U18 to be held from 18 to 21 March at Sherry Golf (Cádiz); the National Junior Women’s Championship to be played from 9 to 11 April in La Torre (Murcia); the Ladies Spanish Championship U16 to be played from 30 April to 2 May in Alicante Golf and, as a closing event, the Ladies Spanish Championship to be held from 31 May to 3 June at RCG La Coruña.
The registration period for the first event, the Spanish Women’s Under 18 Championship 2021 (scoring event for the Women’s World Amateur Ranking (WWAGR), as well as for the Women’s Under 18 and Under 16 National Amateur Rankings 2021) is already open and ends on Thursday 4th March at 23:59 hours.
