After pressing pause on all scheduled events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ladies Europen Tour will officially return on August 13 with back-to-back events in Scotland.
The women's tour is resuming its 2020 season with the 2020 Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open from August 13 to 16, followed closely by the AIG Women’s British Open from August 20 to 23.
The Ladies Scottish Open will take place at the Renaissance Club in North Berwick, while the British Open will be hosted by nine-time Open venue Royal Troon in South Ayrshire.
Following consultations with the Scottish Government and the relevant bodies and authorities, both events will take place without spectators.
Scotland’s Catriona Matthew, an Aberdeen Standard Investments ambassador, said:
“We are all happy to hear that women’s golf will be getting back underway in Scotland and especially grateful to Aberdeen Standard Investments and VisitScotland for working so hard to make this happen and putting all the necessary COVID-19 related practices in place and for being so supportive of the women’s tours.
“With men’s professional golf back playing, it is important that we are able to follow suit, so this is really excellent news for the women’s game and I am delighted to be preparing for my national open in just over a month’s time.”
With so many events on the LET and LPGA cancelled this year, including the Evian Championship that was most recently postponed to 2021 only last month, we're thrilled to hear that the both tours will be returning to the UK so soon.
Plus, with the Rose Ladies Tour concluding on August 7 it means that the players can enjoy a consistent schedule of tournaments on brilliant courses throughout the summer.
Best of all, it has already been confirmed that we will be able to watch the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open on Sky Sports and the Golf Channel, while more details about when you can catch the British Open will be released nearer the time.
