The Solheim Cup is the
biggest event in women’s golf and one of the most prestigious women’s sporting
events on the planet. It was first contested in 1990 at Lake Nona Golf &
Country Club in Florida. Since then it has been held biennially with the venue
alternating between courses in the United States and Europe.
The event consists of a golf
match play competition between teams of 12 players from Europe and the United
States, mirroring the concept seen in The Ryder Cup. When held in Europe, the
rights to the event are owned by the Ladies European Tour, who delegate the
responsibility for staging the event to a host country or venue. It is
anticipated that the event will attract in excess of 100,000 attendees.
Scotland was awarded the
right to host The 2019 Solheim Cup on 29 October 2015 following a vote by the
board of the Ladies European Tour. The delivery and staging of the event will
be managed by VisitScotland’s Events Directorate on behalf of The Scottish
Government. VisitScotland has appointed IMG (UK) Ltd as the Event Staging
partner on a concession basis, following competitive tender. Gleneagles
was chosen as the preferred host venue for the bid following a comprehensive
tender process for interested venues.
VisitScotland, acting on behalf of the Event Staging Partner IMG (UK)
Ltd, will gradually post contract notifications pertinent to the delivery of
Solheim Cup 2019 here. If you would like to receive e-mail updates of all
notices published for this event, you can add the ‘Solheim Cup 2019’ code to
your alert profile. Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015 and
Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 will apply to eligible procurements.
