Inverness set to host 2013 PING Junior Solheim Cup

The Inverness Hotel & Golf Club in Denver, Colo., one of Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play,” is set to host the biennial PING Junior Solheim Cup in 2013, the American Junior Golf Association announced Wednesday.  

 

“The Inverness Hotel & Golf Club is excited to host this special event,” said David Steinmetz, Director of Golf. “Our membership and staff look forward to a great week featuring these talented young female players from the United States and Europe.”

 

Designed by renowned golf course architect Preston Maxwell, the par-70, 7,056-yard championship course will be a true test with its unforgiving slopes, rolling hills and deep bunkers.

 

The PING Junior Solheim Cup is a biennial, trans-Atlantic team match play competition featuring the 12 best female junior golfers (ages 12-18) from Europe and the United States.  Matches include four-ball, foursomes and singles. The 2013 event will host the seventh PING Junior Solheim Cup, in which Team USA leads the all-time series, 3-2-1. 

 

Notable past players from Team USA include Paula Creamer, Vicky Hurst, Brittany Lincicome, Brittany Lang, Morgan Pressel, Jessica Korda and Lexi Thompson. Past participants from Team Europe include Melissa Reid, Anna Nordqvist, Belen Mozo and Azahara Munoz.

 

The sixth matchup in 2011 marked the first time a team captured the Cup on foreign soil, as Team USA retained the title with a 12-12 tie at Knightsbrook Hotel Spa & Golf Resort in Trim, County Meath, Ireland.

 

The PING Junior Solheim Cup is owned and hosted by PING and will be operated by the American Junior Golf Association with assistance from the Ladies Professional Golf Association and the Ladies European Tour.

 

Founded by Karsten and Louise Solheim, the Karsten Manufacturing Corporation is a long-time sponsor of the LPGA and AJGA.

Besides its presence in the United States, PING markets custom-fit and custom-built equipment to more than 70 countries.
