Players on the Ladies European Tour will compete for a record-breaking prize fund after the 2023 schedule was announced.

There will be a prize fund of €35 million for 30 events with the 2023 calendar taking in 21 different countries. The season will begin in Kenya in the first week of February.

Four co-sanctioned events with the LPGA will be played in July and August including the Amundi Evian Championship, AIG Women’s Open, the Women’s Scottish Open the week before and the ISPS HANDA World Invitational in Galgorm Castle.

The Aramco Saudi Ladies International will have an elevated prize fund of $5m.

2023 also includes the Solheim Cup at Finca Cortesin in Spain while the season will conclude at the Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de Espana.

“Thanks to our partners, promoters, host venues and fans, 2023 is going to be an incredibly exciting year for the LET,” said CEO Alexandra Armas.

“This year’s Race to Costa del Sol showcased the outstanding skill of our players and there will be even higher profile opportunities for our role models to shine next year, with more total prize money than at any time in our history.

“The LET now presents a platform for women to build a successful career and achieve their dreams in professional golf. We will continue to work hard to elevate the sport in Europe and around the world.”
