Experience the 2017 Solheim Cup with Your Golf Travel

Solheim Cup - Des Moines Golf and Country Club, Iowa, USA (18-20 Aug 2017)

Solheim Cup

The Solheim Cup is the most prestigious team event in women's golf, with the elite individuals from Europe and the United States battling for the famous crystal trophy. Like any good team format championship, the Solheim Cup is charged with emotion, with patriotism and national glory fuelling the fire.

It is now well established, but the Solheim Cup has only been competed for since 1990, when the dream of Ping founder, Karsten Solheim, was finally realised. An avid backer of women's golf, Solheim made history by pioneering this now prestigious event.

Like the Ryder Cup, the women's equivalent is played every two years and alternates between venues in Europe and the United States. Enquire now for your chance to soak up the phenomenal atmosphere with our official Solheim Cup ticket and hospitality packages.

A Look at the 2017 Solheim Cup

The course
Measuring over 7,000 yards from the tournament tees, the Pete Dye designed North course will be a tough test for the women golfers who gather in Iowa to do battle for the 15th Solheim Cup.

Set amongst 471 acres of undulating land Des Moines Golf and Country Club boasts some spectacular holes that will provide a suitable stage for matchplay golf. The 18th is a great risk and reward hole, the water hazard just in front of the green may well decide the outcome of a few of the Singles matches on Sunday.

What you need to know

Getting there
You can fly into Des Moines via a number of US hubs with Virgin Atlantic and Delta Airlines.

What an experience, I am so glad we decided to go, watching the Ryder Cup on television was exiting but actually being amongst the action was even better. The weather could have been a little better but we still had a fantastic time, thanks Your Golf Travel.

A little disappointed that Europe lost but wow what an experience, the atmosphere on the final day was just electric. Think I may be tempted to go to Hazeltine or Des Moines.

Thanks Your Golf Travel for organising a trip of a lifetime for my wife, what a fight back on the last day. We would recommend this experience to anyone and may be booking a Masters trip next.

The golf was first class, the fight back from the US team was amazing and we even had a little controversy thrown in. Thank you for organising such a wonderful trip.
