Curtis Cup gets new date clear of Solheim Cup on 2021 schedule

The 2021 amateur golf calendar now has a slightly different look.

This year’s Curtis Cup — a women’s amateur event where the best players from the United States take on a team of players from Great Britain & Ireland — at Conwy Golf Club in Wales was originally pushed back to Sept. 3-5, 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The problem? There was already a rather large event that week across the pond.

The Solheim Cup – the top professional women’s players from the U.S. against the best from Europe – was already slated to be played at Inverness Club in Ohio that week. The Junior Solheim Cup is that same week, forcing some players to decide between the Junior Solheim and Curtis cups.

The Solution? The Curtis Cup has been moved to Aug. 26-28, 2021.

“We have listened to the feedback we received about the rescheduled dates for the Curtis Cup in 2021 and looked again at the schedule,” said the R&A’s Duncan Weir. “We have moved the match forward by a week and introduced a Saturday finish to enable it to slot in ahead of the Solheim Cup.”

The U.S. has won 29 matches to Great Britain & Ireland’s 8. The 1936, 1958 and 1994 matches were tied.
