PARKER, Colo., Oct. 30, 2012 – In honor of the upcoming holiday season, the 2013 Solheim Cup is offering a special package for match-day passes through Dec. 15 for fans excited to attend the one-of-a-kind international team competition Aug. 16-18, 2013.
From Halloween until Dec. 15, the Solheim Cup is offering a holiday package where fans can buy two daily passes for $100 and receive a commemorative Solheim Cup hat as a free gift. The package is valued at $160, so Solheim Cup fans can enjoy nearly 40 percent in savings by going to SolheimCup.com and taking advantage of the offer.
“Passes for the 2013 Solheim Cup make great holiday gifts, and we’re very excited to be able to offer this special package,” Solheim Cup Tournament Director Becky Newell said. “Fans attending the Solheim Cup are a big part of what makes the event so special, and we can’t wait to see everyone packed into Colorado Golf Club to cheer on their teams.”
More than 100,000 spectators are expected for the three-day event, which pits the top 12 women’s professional golfers from Europe against the United States’ top dozen stars. Europe won last year’s installment in Ireland, but the U.S. Team has never lost on home soil (6-0), so something will have to give at Colorado Golf Club.
ABOUT THE SOLHEIM CUP
The Solheim Cup combines the tradition and prestige of the game of golf with passion for one’s country. This biennial, trans-Atlantic team match-play competition features the best U.S.-born players from the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour and the best European members from the Ladies European Tour (LET).
The Solheim Cup is named in honor of Karsten Solheim, the founder of Karsten Manufacturing Corporation, which makes PING golf equipment. In 1990, the Solheim family, in conjunction with the LPGA and the LET, developed the concept and became the title sponsor for The Solheim Cup, professional golf’s international match-play competition for women. Held every two years, the event has grown into the most prestigious international women’s professional golf team event. The Solheim Cup is the most highly coveted trophy in women’s professional golf team competition; some of the most memorable moments in women’s golf have happened during Solheim Cups, and berths on the U.S. and European teams are highly coveted by players from both organizations.
The 2013 Solheim Cup will take place Aug. 13-18 at Colorado Golf Club in Parker, Colo. The European Team enters the competition holding the Cup and will need 14 points to retain it, with the U.S. Team needing 14½ points to regain the coveted Waterford Crystal prize. The U.S. squad holds an 8-4 lead in the series, which began in 1990, and is undefeated (6-0) on U.S. soil.
