Seventy-two of Europe’s finest golfers will grace the tournament, including 64 players from the women’s European tour and 8 special guests. The competition, a 54-hole stroke play without a cut, promises to be a thrilling display of sportsmanship and golfing mastery.

He went on to say that the Son Muntaner golf course ‘offers the perfect setting for European female golfers to shine and inspire the next generation of athletes.’

This statement underscores the importance of the tournament not just as a competition, but as a future goal for other aspiring athletes.
