THE countdown has begun for one of the Costa’s most stellar golf tournaments ever, which will see the world’s top women professionals fight it out on the fairways.

Heads of the Ladies European Tour joined forces with Francisco Javier Fernández of the Junta to hold a presentation in Malaga on the event, which tees off on September 21 at the Real Club Guadalmina in San Pedro de Alcántara.

Over 120 top players from across the continent will go club to club in the tournament, one of several that make up this year’s Ladies European Tour.

Azahara Muñoz will defend her Spanish Open title against other Spaniards such as Nuria Iturrios and Patricia Sanz Barrio, and UK players Florentyna Parker, Hannah Burke and Kylie Henry.

Fernandez said the event was an important step in the global campaign  to ‘normalise women’s competitions’ in the traditionally male sport and celebrate the players’ talents.
