Race to Costa Del Sol
In 2020 the Costa del Sol Tourist Board began sponsoring the Ladies European Tour Order of Merit, which is called the ‘Race to Costa del Sol’ and offers an additional bonus pool of €250,000, split between the top three finishers.
The player who tops the Race to Costa del Sol rankings will receive an additional €125,000, with the second highest finisher receiving €75,000 and €50,000 for the third placed player following the season-long race. The winner will also receive a 7-year exemption under category 2A regulations.
The Race to Costa del Sol tees off in South Africa in May with the Investec South African Women’s Open and will culminate at the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España in November.
The Race to Costa del Sol will showcase the tourism excellence of both the Costa del Sol and Andalusia whilst providing a tremendous incentive for Ladies European Tour members.
