Tipsport Czech Ladies Open 2019

The Tipsport Czech Ladies Open 2019, a joint event for the Ladies European Tour (LET) and the lower LET Access Series (LETAS), will take place at Karlštejn Golf Resort from 23 to 25 August. This marks the return of a golf tournament from the highest women’s European circuit to the Czech Republic after a three-year hiatus.

The 138-member field will include the top 50 LET players and the top 50 LETAS players, accompanied by golfers from an inter-tournament exchange programme or with an invitation from the promoter. Golf fans will get to see the likes of Leona Maguire, Lydia Hall and Hannah Burke. And Czech professionals and amateurs will also be in action.

The promoter of this tournament, with a purse of EUR 120,000, is Luboš Koželuh, the director of Sport Team Plzeň and father of two of our excellent golfers. Eva is a professional and caddied for Klára Spilková at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. His younger daughter, Tereza, is a promising Czech amateur. “We are very pleased to see the Ladies European Tour back in the Czech Republic, and even more so at Karlštejn Golf Resort, which is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and finest golf courses in Europe,” says Luboš Koželuh, expressing his wish to establish this tournament in the Czech Republic on a lasting basis.

A women’s LET circuit tournament was last played in the Czech Republic in 2016, when it was held at Dýšina, near Plzeň, a venue that played host four times in total. Prior to that, the event twice took place at Albatross.

But back to the present. After the official tournament opening on Wednesday 21 August, when the PRO – AM tournament and Players – Partners Party are on the agenda, Thursday 22 August will be reserved for the practice round. The first round of the tournament will take place on Friday 23 August, the second on Saturday 24 August, and after that we will know which of the golfers has made the cut for the final on Sunday 25 August. The tournament will close with the official announcement of the winners.

We look forward to your visit.
