The Ladies European Tour, Golf du Kempferhof and the EVENTEAM Group are delighted to announce that the EUROPEAN LADIES OPEN will be played close to Strasbourg, the capital of Europe. The EUROPEAN LADIES OPEN will offer the second highest purse in French women’s golf, behind the Evian Championship, thanks to a prize fund of €300,000. The first edition of the international tournament will be played on October 3-6, 2019, just after the European Week of Sport. Organised by the European Commission each year since 2014, the European Week of Sport, which will take place on September 23-30, is an initiative to promote sport and physical activity across Europe and is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level. A golf event of this scale will be an important platform to develop golf participation in Alsace.
