LONDON – The Netherlands will host the Solheim Cup for the first time in 2026 after being selected to host the biggest team event in women’s golf.
Bernardus Golf will host the event, organizers said Tuesday. The village of Kromvoort in the southern Netherlands, close to the historic cathedral Den Bosch, opened in 2018 and hosted the Dutch Open for male European visitors in 2021 and 2022 and will run again next year.
Catriona Matthews, the European captain for the Solheim Cup in 2019 and 2021, described Bernards as a “fantastic place”.
“This reminded me a bit of a links course,” Matthew said. “There’s going to be a lot of risk-reward over the last few holes so it’s going to be interesting and that’s what the fans want to come and see.”
Europe will face the United States in Spain’s Finca Cortesin in September next year.
The Solheim Cup will return to being held in 2024, with Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Virginia hosting it in 2024.
