Solheim Cup 2017

By Suzy O’Hara

Women’s golf was center stage in Des Moines, Iowa and Arizona was there in full force. Over twenty-five Arizonans from Tucson to Prescott packed up their red, white and blue gear along team spirit and headed to the Midwest to root for team USA. The folks in Des Moines were wonderful hosts and the spectators were treated to amazing golf on a beautiful golf course by the women on both teams.  

In addition to the great golf the spectators were treated to concerts by Jake Owen and Rascall Flatts, Iowa sweet corn out on the course and great pageantry at the opening and closing ceremonies. All in all it was an amazing week and team USA retained the cup in front of a record saving crowd of over 124,000.
