In the 2022 Race to Costa del Sol, second-placed Grant edged closer to the leader Maja Stark, who missed the cut in Evian, although Stark followed her friend throughout the final round, walking the fairways from outside the ropes and the pair greeted each other with a chest-bump and a hug afterwards. With 2,397.5 and 2,201.49 points respectively, Stark leads Grant by 196 points heading into next week’s Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open, while Georgia Hall has moved up one place into the top 10. A victory at Dundonald Links is worth 625 points, while any LET member who wins the following week’s AIG Women’s Open at Muirfield will earn 675 points, setting up an intriguing fortnight in Scotland.
In 2020 the Costa Del Sol Tourist Board became a partner of the Ladies European Tour by sponsoring the Order of Merit, which is called the Race to Costa del Sol.
The Costa del Sol is the leading destination for golfers who seek a wide variety of quality golf courses and ideal golfing weather through 12 months of the year. With over seventy golf courses, many of which were conceived by masters of golf course design, the Costa del Sol enjoys worldwide prestige. Many top-level championships have provided unforgettable days of competition on its courses: the Ryder Cup, the World Golf Championships, the Estrella Damm Andalucía Masters and the Ladies European Tour Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España.
The Costa del Sol, Global Partner of the 2023 Solheim Cup, looks forward to hosting this historic event and to welcoming golf enthusiasts from all over the world, before, during, and after, the event.
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 3-year exemption.
The Race to Costa del Sol tees off in Kenya in February with the Magical Kenya Ladies 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.
