support of the Royal Family endorses their commitment to women’s sport and golf
as ideal vehicles to convey the best values, in addition to reinforcing the
position of the 2023 Solheim Cup, a memorable golf tournament that recently
received another decisive boost after being declared an event of Exceptional
