Race to the Costa del Sol – 2020 Ladies European Tour: Open de España from 26 – 29 November
LET Race to Costa del Sol Speeding Along as Usual!
Despite the unusual state of the world this year, and the uncertainty around most events, the LET Race to Costa del Sol has teed off as usual, making a stop in Aberdeen for the Ladies Scottish Open. Sponsored by the Costa del Sol Tourism Board – which is where the race gets its name from – the Ladies European Golf Tour graced Scotland last month, following a successful initial start in Australia back in February.
The Scottish leg of the race featured the crème de la crème of female Spanish golfers including some household names like Azahara Muñoz, Nuria Iturrios, Luna Sobrón, Carmen Alonso, Noemí Jiménez, María Hernández and Silvia Bañón.
Following this, the next part of the LET Race to Costa del Sol then graces the Czech Republic for the Tipsport Czech Ladies Open, followed by the Swiss and French ladies opens respectively in September, before taking a brief pause and heading over to the United Arab Emirates for the penultimate event; the Omega Dubai Moonlight Classic.
As always, the final leg of the race will take place at the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España Feminino, which is being held in November. With an ever-growing prize fund, the event is likely to attract the best in both local and international talent, which will no doubt attract a large crowd of golf enthusiasts as in previous years.
Although three Spanish golfers have in the past laid claim to the title of winner of the LET Order of Merit, this year’s race is dominated by Swedish Julia Engström, with English-born Alice Hewson and Belgium’s Manon De Roey hot on her heels.
Speaking about their involvement with this year’s event, Francisco Salado, President of Costa del Sol Tourist Board, said: “The Costa del Sol Tourist Board is proud to be part of this new stage in the history of LET. Women’s professional golf will continue to grow in popularity, thanks to the dedication, and mastery, of LET’s incredible players and the message that Costa del Sol is a champion of women’s golf will be welcomed by golfers throughout the world.”
To further prove their commitment to women’s golf, the Costa del Sol Tourist Board has doubled the prize money to a staggering €600,000. And if that wasn’t enough, the top three finalists will also be well rewarded for their skill in the game. The winner of the 2020 Order or Merit will receive €125,000 while the LET players in second and third place will be awarded with €75,000 and €50,000 each.
