8 reasons to visit the Ricoh Women’s British Open


The Ricoh Women’s British Open gets underway at Trump Turnberry Resort tomorrow with the new champion being crowned on Sunday, weather permitting of course. Here are eight good reasons why you should go along and see the action and drama unfold…

*It’s being played on Turnberry’s stunning Ailsa course – one of the world’s greatest links layouts.

* The event is one of the most international Majors in golf with last year’s field boasting players from 28 different nations, including all 20 of the world’s top 20.

*Last year’s winner, Mo Martin, is looking to defend her title against some of the greatest female golfers in the world including fellow Americans, Paula Creamer, Lexi Thompson and Michelle Wie; the youngest ever world number one,  Lydia Ko and past champions Stacy Lewis, Yani Tseng and Jiyai Shin .

*Unlike last week’s Open at St Andrews, the galleries won’t be packed to the rafters so you’re guaranteed great viewing of the world’s leading ladies in action – wherever you are on the course.

*The leading ladies swing it very nicely indeed with slow and smooth, as opposed to brute force and power, the norm.

*It presents the final chance to see the world-famous Ailsa course before it undergoes major changes this winter/spring.

*Chance to cheer on Britain’s leading ladies including Charley Hull, Catriona Matthew and Dame Laura Davies. 

*It offers amazing value at under £20 per championship day.
