SOLHEIM CUP WITH ALISON NICHOLAS 12-16 Sept 2019
12th - 16th SEPTEMBER 2019
In 2019 The Solheim Cup will return to Scotland, the Home of Golf for the first time since 2000.
The PGA Centenary Course, Gleneagles, host of the 2014 Ryder Cup, will once again see Europe and the USA compete in one of the highlights of the golfing calendar. The Solheim Cup is a biennial tournament for professional women golfers and is named after the Norwegian-American golf club manufacturer Karsten Solheim (Ping) who was instrumental in its creation. The venue alternates between the USA and Europe.
Join our host, former Solheim Cup Captain Alison Nicholas for this exciting event, eagerly awaited every two years and in 2019 at the fabulous venue of Gleneagles, Scotland.
Alison Nicholas, MBE, is one of Great Britain’s most successful golfers. In a professional career spanning more than 20 years, she claimed 18 tournament wins including the British Open, topped the Ladies European Tour Order of Merit and, in 1997, won the most prestigious championship in golf – the US Open. Her aggregate ten-under-par total was, at the time, the lowest recorded in the history of the championship and led to her becoming The Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year, and the LET Players’ Player of the Year. Alison is well known for her Solheim Cup exploits. She played in six, and captained the European team to a famous victory at Killeen Castle in Ireland.
The 16th Solheim Cup event promises to be the biggest golf event of the year. The matches will be played on the 13th to 15th September and are expected to be watched by millions around the world.

300 years of history, just 7 miles from Edinburgh’s city centre.
Impressively situated in 1,000 acres of parkland lies the four-star Dalmahoy Hotel & Country Club. With spectacular views to Edinburgh Castle and the Forth Bridges, it’s a celebration of Scottish heritage.
With 215 rooms and suites, contemporary meeting and events spaces and a range of restaurants and bars, our historic resort also features two 18-hole golf courses, luxurious leisure facilities and a state-of-the-art fitness centre.
It’s hard to believe Dalmahoy lies just 20 minutes from Edinburgh and 10 minutes from Edinburgh Airport. It enjoys excellent transport links by air, road and rail, while offering a luxury retreat at a Scottish resort.
Dalmahoy was home to the Solheim Cup in 1992.
This ladies tournament is represented bi-annually by teams from Europe and the United States. The second ever Solheim Cup was held here at Dalmahoy between 2 - 4 October 1992.
The Europeans were victorious gaining 11.5 points against United States 6.5 points. In 2019 this event will be hosted at The Gleneagles Hotel, only 1 hour's drive away.
We can organise golf at a large variety of clubs in the Edinburgh, Fife and Angus regions on request, subject to availablity.
Dalmahoy’s golfing heritage attracts golfers of all levels, looking to test their skills at the famous venue where the European Ladies won their first Solheim Cup, and where famous names such as Seve Ballesteros, Sam Torrance and Nick Faldo have competed in the Scottish Seniors Open.
The East Course was designed by James Braid to Championship standards, and is a monster from the Championship tees at over 7,400 yards. For members’ competitions and corporate events, it’s a more manageable 6,684 yards, but is still a formidable challenge. The West Course is the shorter of the two but is still a good test of golf. There is a good mix of shorter par 4’s and par 3’s, alongside some very tough par 4’s and a par 5 which is the longest on either course.
