Spain will host the Solheim Cup for the first time when the event returns to Europe in 2023.

The world-renowned championship course at Finca Cortesin in Andalucia has been selected as the biennial event heads to a sixth different European country after Scotland, Germany, Ireland, Wales and Sweden.

"We are delighted to announce Spain as the host nation for the 2023 Solheim Cup when it returns to European soil for the 18th edition of this major international team golf event," said Ladies European Tour chief executive Alexandra Armas.

Finca Cortesin previously hosted the World Match Play Championship

"The tournament will not only enhance the country's reputation as an elite golfing nation but the Costa del Sol as a must-visit destination, which will help to inspire the next generation of children to take up the game."

Next year's Solheim Cup will be staged in Toledo, Ohio in September with Team USA aiming to reclaim the trophy they lost on the last green in the final match of the singles at Gleneagles.
