The 2019 Solheim Cup takes place at Gleneagles from 9th to 15th September and Arnold Clark Car & Van Rental will be an official partner. As well as providing a fleet of vehicles to meet the needs of the teams and officials, spectators and visitors to the event will enjoy special travel partner deals on vehicle hire.
Arnold Clark will also be helping to promote golf at a grassroots level, providing a minibus for the Scottish junior teams for the next three years. This new sponsorship arrangement marks Arnold Clark Car & Van Rental’s continued commitment to women’s golf, with the company having sponsored the RICOH Women’s British open over the last three years from 2015.
David Cooper, Managing Director of Arnold Clark Finance commented: ‘We are very proud to announce this association with one of the biggest events in golf. The 2019 Solheim Cup has themes of innovation, equality and experience, which match up perfectly with our corporate ambitions and brand objectives, and we look forward to being part of this exciting journey with VisitScotland and IMG.’
The Solheim cup is a biennial, transatlantic team match-play competition that sees Europe take on America with teams from the US Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour competing against members from the Ladies European Tour. The last event took place on August 14th – 20th 2017 at Des Moines Country Club in Iowa, United States with the US Team retaining the Waterford Crystal prize by 16 ½ to 11 ½ points.
European Captain and VisitScotland Ambassador, Catriona Matthew, is focused on returning the trophy to Europe in 2019 on home soil and organisers are aiming to give the team all the support they need and set a new European attendance record.
Ross Hallett, IMG Tournament Director said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Arnold Clark as a partner for the 2019 Solheim Cup and believe their contribution, in terms of their excellent products and world-class service, will play a vital role in helping us realise our ambition of delivering the best Solheim Cup to date.’
The week will begin with the PING Junior Solheim Cup. This under-18s event will enjoy greater prominence than ever before to ensure that this is the most family orientated Solheim Cup ever staged. VisitScotland, on behalf of the Scottish Government, has stated the ambition to ensure the 2019 edition of the Solheim Cup in Perthshire will serve to both grow golf and leave a lasting legacy of increased participation in women’s sport.
Tickets including family packages and special early bird discounts are now available here for the 16th edition of the Solheim Cup at Gleneagles.Back to Latest News
