The Ladies European Tour has announced a record-breaking schedule for the 2021 season, featuring 27 events and its biggest total prize fund. Nine new tournaments and 19 different countries feature on the Race to Costa del Sol schedule, with players competing for a total purse of over €19m – €2m more than the proposed 2020 schedule before the coronavirus pandemic and €6m higher than in 2019.
“We are extremely excited to announce our record-breaking schedule for 2021 and thrilled to offer some good news to our membership after a difficult season last year.” Alexandra Armas, Ladies European Tour, CEO, said. “The LET is dedicated to supporting our members and growing the game of golf to new and existing markets and we are proud to confirm the return of not only all postponed events but the addition of several new and innovative tournaments, which shows just how much interest and momentum there is behind women’s sport.”
“I committed myself to play on the LET in Europe last year and unfortunately I was not able to play as much as I would have liked so I am pleased to see such a healthy schedule for me to get back out there.” Solheim Cup captain Catriona Matthew added. “I have six captain’s picks for the first time this year and I am looking forward to playing with some of Europe’s best as I look to assemble my team ahead of defending our trophy in September.”
