Knightsbrook Golf Club was host to the 2011 PING Junior Solheim Cup.
Knightsbrook were very proud to host this tremendously successful event, with the United States retaining the PING Junior Solheim Cup in dramatic circumstances when they came from behind to earn a 12-12 draw against Europe in an intense match which was not settled until the last putt dropped.
The PING Junior Solheim Cup is a team match play competition between Europe and the United States, each team featuring the best 12 female golfers aged between 12 and 18. The event was founded by PING in 2002. Previous PING Junior Solheim Cup competitors include Solheim Cup players such as Paula Creamer, Azahara Munoz, Brittany Lincicome, Anna Nordqvist, Morgan Pressel, Caroline Hedwall, Brittany Lang and Melissa Reid. The aim of the PING Junior Solheim Cup is to give participants great golfing opportunities to further their golfing careers and to support the future golf stars.
