Women's golf closes its season this weekend in Marbella

Published on

The Andalucía Costa del Sol Spanish Open 2023 is held in the Real Club de Golf Las Brisas from 23rd to 26th November and is part of the programme of the Solheim Cup 2023, an event declared an Event of Exceptional Public Interest (AEIP) and which provides significant tax benefits to participating companies. 
The Real Club de Golf Las Brisas, located in the coastal town of Marbella, will wear its best clothes to receive the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España 2023, tournament that, as it is traditional since 2020, will close the season of the Ladies European Tour and, in addition, will decide the winner of the Race to Costa del Sol, the ranking of the circuit.

Therefore, the historic course designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. in 1968 and updated by Kyle Phillips in 2015, will not only crown the last winner of the 2023 LET but will also decide the golfer who will take over from Sweden's Linn Grant, winner of last year's Order of Merit after a thrilling battle with her compatriot Maja Stark.

Likewise, the spectacle and excitement are assured in this Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España, as the fight for the Race to Costa del Sol is far from decided, with half a dozen players with options and a change of leader after the Mallorca Ladies Open held last weekend.

Thailand's Trichat Cheenglab, with a second place in Mallorca, is the new number one in the ranking, overtaking France's Céline Boutier, who is second.

And along with these two golfers, also have mathematical possibilities of winning the Race to Costa del Sol the Indian Diksha Dagar, the Swedish Johanna Gustavsson, the German Alexandra Fosterling, recent winner at Golf Son Muntaner, and one of the local stars, the Malaga Ana Pelaez.

In addition to the players who are immersed in the fight for the Race to Costa del Sol, there are others to consider for victory at the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España, such as Carlota Ciganda, winner in 2021; the two-time winners of the tournament, Azahara Muñoz and Anne Van Dam from the Netherlands; and even the defending champion, Caroline Hedwall from Sweden.

Finally, another award that will be up for grabs at the Real Club de Golf Las Brisas will be the "rookie of the year". The classification that distinguishes the best rookie golfer of the season on the Ladies European Tour is also led by Thailand's Trichat Cheenglab, ahead of Germany's Alexandra Försterling and Sweden's Sara Kjellker.
