Ian Ferguson, Club Manager at Dundonald Links, said, “We are excited to host the Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open next year and to work with Trust Golf, VisitScotland, the LPGA, LET and IMG to bring this prestigious event to life.

The Scottish Government and VisitScotland announced last year a five-year commitment to the Women’s Scottish Open with investments of up to £ 6 million by 2025.

Paul Bush OBE, Director of Events at VisitScotland, said, “Dundonald Links already has an excellent reputation as a championship venue and, having previously hosted the Women’s Scottish Open, I am excited to bring the event to North Ayrshire with Trust Golf as title partner returns.
