Women’s Golf & Travel “Proud Promoter” for
Solheim Cup 2023 partners with India

USA based Women’s Golf and Travel Concierge (WGTC), has been named a “Proud Promoter” for the 2023 Solheim Cup in Costa del Sol, Spain and proudly partners with India’s Golf Association to experience this epic professional women’s golf tournament.

“We’re honored to have this designation. I believe it signifies to travelers our credibility, reliability, and the efficiency of our company,” said Barbara Gutstadt, Founder / CEO of Women’s Golf and Travel. "This will be our fifth Solheim Cup escorting fans to the most prestigious professional women’s sporting events in the world.” Barbara is known for her customized Solheim songs and cheers to her red, white, and blue mohawk, patriotic striped overalls, and star-spangled face-paint and mask, and you can count on her being front and center with the crowds cheering on TEAM USA.

The Solheim Cup matches will take place September 18-24, 2023. “Finca Cortesin has a spectacular setting at a world-class resort and we’re anticipating a large fan base to cheer on Team USA,” Gutstadt said.

In 1997, this region made history by hosting in Valderrama the first Ryder Cup held outside British and American soil, and it is once again blazing a trail as the host of the first Solheim Cup to be played on a Spanish course.

The Costa del Sol’s Finca Cortesín is ready to welcome the world’s top women players in a tournament which for the third time will leave the United Kingdom as part of its European rotation. Finca Cortesin is an independent luxury golf, hotel, and spa destination resort set in the rolling hills of southern Spain between Marbella and Sotogrande. Overlooking the Mediterranean to one side and the tranquil Casares Mountains to the other, Finca Cortesin was designed in the style of a traditional Spanish finca.

The Solheim Cup, which was first played in 1990, is an international competition between the best women golfers in the U.S. and Europe. It’s the women’s version of the Ryder Cup — a combination of passion, patriotism, phenomenal golf, and adrenaline-pumping excitement.

Women's Golf and Travel is known to travelers for its emphasis on keen attention to detail, stress-free traveling, and for well-organized itineraries.

Gutstadt says, “When you book a Solheim package with us, we’re in constant communication with our guests along the way through email, zoom calls and social media. Our goal is to make every Solheim Cup the best golf event experience for travelers and fans in their lifetime.”

As a long-standing member of the LPGA Amateurs (13,000 members), the world’s largest women’s amateur golf association, Gutstadt has organized past Solheim Cup trips for this organization as well as for State Golf Associations, country clubs, groups of individual golfers and also for other countries such as Australia, India, Canada, Latina Americans and more. Women’s Golf and Travel has signed a Proud Partner Agreement with the LPGA Amateur Golf Association as a Solheim Cup 2023 Travel Provider.

Lisa Longball, Celebrity Golfer and an 8 time reigning Long Drive Canadian champion states, “I work with Barbara organizing my USA-based Golf Schools. In addition to her incredible work ethic and knowledge of the industry, she is an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Barbara and Women’s Golf and Travel for any of your travel needs.”

Karen Leedy, past president of LPGA Amateurs Fort Lauderdale Chapter states, “I have gone on Barbara’s trips and have witnessed first hand her excellent professionalism and trip organization skills. LPGA Amateur members rave about their travel experience with Barbara”
