Will Scotland be able to host the 2019 Solheim Cup?

By: March 7, 2015

Scotland has submitted an expression of interest in bidding to host the 2019 Solheim Cup and will decide on whether to launch a formal bid in the summer. The expression of interest has been submitted to the Ladies European Tour by EventScotland.

I think there should be no reason why Scotland could not host such prestigious golf cup. Especially when the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles was regarded as the best-ever staging of the event. The only question which golf club will be able to provide as good service as Gleneagles to give the best customer experience.


What I really liked in 2014 Ryder Cup is that the organizers utilized Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). Fans attended Gleneagles, Scotland received Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) wristbands to go along with their tickets for entry. 

These wearables served as the prism in which users can partake in the strategically deployed activities across the golf course, encouraging to share their experiences to social media at the very moment. This is a good way to reach those otherwise would not watch golf or follow up the Ryder Cup event so close.
