2018 – Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club, England – 2 – 5 August
The Ricoh Women’s British Open will take place at Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club for a fifth time in 2018.
The Championship was last played there in 2009 when Catriona Matthew famously became the first Scottish woman to clinch a Major title, remarkably only 11 weeks after giving birth to her second daughter.
Sherri Steinhauer won the first Championship held at the venerable Lancashire venue back in 1998. Sweden’s Annika Sorenstam followed the American into the winner’s circle when the Championship was held there in 2003 and then Steinhauer emerged victorious for a third time.
Royal Lytham and St Annes Golf Club is one of the most challenging of the Open and Ricoh Women’s British Open venues with 169 bunkers to challenge the players. The Club has hosted eleven Open Championships, the most recent in 2012, won by South Africa’s Ernie Els
