Golf Business News – GB & Ireland Curtis Cup team announced


The Great Britain and Ireland team to play the USA in the 41st Curtis Cup matches in Wales later this month has been announced. 

The team is Hannah Darling (18, Broomieknowe, Scotland); Louise Duncan (21, West Kilbride, Scotland); Annabell Fuller (19, Roehampton, England); Charlotte Heath (19, Huddersfield, England); Caley McGinty (20, Knowle, England); Emily Toy (23, Carlyon Bay, England); Lauren Walsh (20, Castlewarden, Ireland), and Annabel Wilson (20, Lurgan, Ireland). The reserves are Hazel MacGarvie (21, Royal Troon, Scotland) and Julie McCarthy (22, Forrest Little, Ireland)

The stage is set for an exciting match at Conwy Golf Club as the USA, who have not won on this side of the Atlantic since 2008, will be bidding to retain the Curtis Cup.  GB&I will be looking to emulate the winning form of the 2012 and 2016 teams, who were victorious on home soil.

Elaine Ratcliffe, GB&I Captain, said: “It is a great honour to be chosen to represent Great Britain and Ireland and competing in the Curtis Cup is the pinnacle of the amateur game for these players. Home matches have been very successful for GB&I in recent times and this year we have selected a highly skilled and talented team which is focussed on winning back the trophy on home soil. I know that they will enjoy the opportunity to compete together and create memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.”

Fans will be able to attend the match at Conwy from the opening ceremony on Wednesday, 25 August through to the conclusion of play on Saturday, 28 August for a £40 adult season ticket. Children aged 18 years or under will be admitted free of charge when accompanied by an adult ticket holder. 

Tickets must be pre-purchased and be bought before August 20. For details, www.randa.org.
