The Solheim Cup, the magnificent women’s golf fencing between Europe and the United States, which will take place in Spain for the first time between 22 and 24 September 2023 in the enchanting Finca Cortesín de Casares, begins the countdown with events celebrating the championship. One year to go.
This means that there are only 365 days left for the start of this wonderful event in the emblematic Finca Cortesin in Casares. It can be said that this Soldheim Cup joins the list of great events organized by Spain: the FIFA and Basketball World Cup, the 1997 Ryder Cup, the America’s Cup for Sailing.
