She then managed her lead carefully in the final round, avoiding unnecessary risks.

The Ladies European Tour (LET) stands as a premier professional golf tour exclusively for women, boasting a rich history since its inception in 1978. Headquartered at Buckinghamshire Golf Club, situated near London in England, the LET embodies a commitment to excellence and inclusivity within the realm of women’s golf.

Operating as a company limited by guarantee, the LET adopts a unique legal structure commonly seen among UK-based sports organizations. This structure prioritizes the interests of its members by focusing on maximizing returns through prize money, rather than catering to the profit-driven motives of investors. Such a framework underscores the tour’s dedication to fostering a supportive environment for its players while nurturing the growth and sustainability of women’s golf on a global scale.

Guided by a board of directors and a Players’ Council, the LET’s governance ensures transparency, accountability, and representation of its diverse membership. While the majority of players hail from European nations, the tour boasts a truly international roster, with members representing over 40 countries worldwide. This diversity enriches the competitive landscape, fostering camaraderie and mutual respect among players from varied cultural backgrounds.

Embracing a truly global outlook, the LET organizes tournaments across five continents, providing opportunities for players to showcase their talent on the world stage. By fostering a dynamic and inclusive environment, the tour continues to elevate the stature of women’s golf while inspiring future generations of players to pursue their dreams on and off the course.
