The Ladies European Tour will continue to expand women’s golf globally in 2023 and its players will compete for at least €35 million, a record-breaking total prize fund. The LET announced today that the 2023 schedule will comprise 30 official events, along with the Solheim Cup in Europe.
“Thanks to our partners, promoters, host venues and fans, 2023 is going to be an incredibly exciting year for the LET,” said CEO Alexandra Armas. “This year’s Race to Costa del Sol showcased the outstanding skill of our players and there will be even higher profile opportunities for our role models to shine next year, with more total prize money than at any time in our history. The LET has grown rapidly over the last three years and we have been oversubscribed for our recent Q-School, demonstrating the record level of interest. The LET now presents a platform for women to build a successful career and achieve their dreams in professional golf. We will continue to work hard to elevate the sport in Europe and around the world.”
The 2023 global schedule will take the LET to 21 different countries, starting with the Magical Kenya Ladies Open, which will be played for the third time over the Baobab Course at Vipingo Ridge in Kenya in the first week of February.
The LET then returns to Morocco for the first time since 2019 for the Lalla Meryem Cup, which will be played over the Blue Course at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam at the same time as the PGA TOUR Champions contests the Trophy Hassan II over the venue’s Red Course.
The Aramco Saudi Ladies International presented by Public Investment Fund (PIF) will feature its strongest-ever field at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club, including 60 LET players and 50 players from within the top 300 of the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings, after the tournament announced its commitment to women’s golf by elevating the prize fund to $5million.
South Africa will host two events in March, the Joburg Ladies Open at Modderfontein Golf Club and the Investec South African Women’s Open at Steenberg Golf Club in Cape Town.
