Lauren Walsh and Annabel Wilson have been selected for the Great Britain and Ireland team for this month's Curtis Cup.

The tournament, which sees the best of Ireland and the UK's amateur golfers take on their contemporaries from the USA, is set to take place at Wales' Conwy Golf Club from 26-28 August.

Walsh plays out of Kildare's Castlewarden club, while Wilson is with Lurgan in Armagh, with both appearing in the biennial tournament for the first time.

Previous competitors include Irish Olympians Stephanie Meadow - who finished seventh in Japan last week - and Leona Maguire, as well as Olivia Mehaffey who turned pro earlier this year.

"It is a great honour to be chosen to represent Great Britain and Ireland and competing in the Curtis Cup is the pinnacle of the amateur game for these players," said GB&I Captain Elaine Ratcliffe.

"Home matches have been very successful for GB&I in recent times and this year we have selected a highly skilled and talented team which is focussed on winning back the trophy on home soil.

"I know that they will enjoy the opportunity to compete together and create memories and friendships that will last a lifetime."
