The 2019 Solheim Cup will take place in Europe, likely in August or September. The exact dates will be announced at a later time. This will be the 16th time the Solheim Cup is played.

2019 Solheim Cup Golf Course

The golf course is on the grounds of the Gleneagles Hotel, a resort destination in Scotland. The resort has three courses; the 2019 Solheim will be played on the Jack Nicklaus-designed PGA Centenary Course. Gleneagles has been the site of numerous big golf tournaments over the years, including the 2014 Ryder Cup and the 1936 Curtis Cup. Gleneagles has also hosted the European Tour's Scottish Open and the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles.

Teams of the 2019 Solheim Cup

The teams at the 2019 Solheim Cup will be comprised of 12 players per side. For Team USA, 10 of those golfers will earn automatic selection via the LPGA Tour's Solheim Cup points list. Two other golfers will be named to the team by the USA captain. For Team Europe, eight golfers will earn automatic selection, four through the Ladies European Tour's points list and four through the world rankings. Four more will be named to the team by the Europe captain (the qualification process is subject to change prior to 2019 matches).

The Format of the 2019 Solheim Cup Match

The 2019 Solheim Cup will take place over three days using match play formats. The competition includes:

  • Day 1: Eight matches total on the first day: four foursomes matches and four four-ball matches. Those matches are played in a morning session and an afternoon session. The order - foursomes first, or four-balls first - is determined by the home-team captain.
  • Day 2: Same as Day 1
  • Day 3: Twelve singles matches. The order in which golfers play is determined by the opposing captains, each captain choosing her team's order without knowledge of the other side's order.
