(WTNH)–The Solheim Cup is the biggest event in women’s professional golf, and the Brooklawn Country Club in Fairfield wants to host it.
The club is among a handful of courses around the country who have made their pitch to host the prestigious event in 2021. It’s the equivalent to the Ryder Cup for men, pairing American players against Europeans in match-play competition.
The Solheim Cup has never been played at a club in the northeast. Brooklawn has made its pitch already, and Daniela Lendl and Rick Ryan hope the club’s rich history is appealing to the selection committee.
