What is the Solheim Cup?
The 20th edition of the event promises to be one of the highlights on the world’s sporting calendar in 2026, as the iconic tournament ventures to new territory in The Netherlands.
First staged in Florida in 1990 and named after club manufacturer Karsten Solheim, who was the driving force behind its inception, The Solheim Cup is contested between two teams of 12 players over three days. It follows the same format as The Ryder Cup, with 28 matches - eight foursomes and eight fourballs over the first two days and 12 singles on the final day.
In 2026, The Netherlands are set to host the Solheim Cup for the first time at Bernardus Golf in Cromvoirt - known for hosting the Dutch Open on the DP World Tour in 2021 and 2022.
The event is not only about the world-class competition on the course, but promises to be a festival of entertainment, activity and fun, with something for everyone.
