The Marquess Course at Woburn Golf Club will host the Women’s British Open for the second time in four years when the major championship returns to south-east England next summer.
Woburn has hosted the championship on ten occasions, the first nine of which were on the neighbouring Duke’s Course in 1984, consecutively from 1990 to 1996 and again in 1999.
The Marquess Course, though, received great acclaim from the 144-strong field when it hosted the event for the first time in 2016, which was won by Ariya Jutanugarn.
“I am so happy to hear that we will be back playing on the Marquess Course at Woburn,” said the Thai star. “I know everyone always says they like the courses where they have won before but I think I actually won because I loved everything about my week in Woburn so much.
“The crowds were amazing, the facilities were perfect, the course suited my game and, of course, there are lots of lovely places around Woburn to visit. I cannot wait to see everyone there in 2019.”
