Marbella mayor, Ángeles Muñoz, said yesterday that the Solheim Cup would showcase “all the wonders of the Costa del Sol” to the world.
At the official presentation of the Club Ambassador 2023 programme, held in Benahavís, the mayor highlighted that the Solheim Cup 2023, “in addition to its sporting value, is also a powerful tool for tourism promotion that transcends the world of golf ”.
Muñoz, who is part of the ‘Honour Committee’ of the sports competition that sees the best female golfers in Europe and America face off against each other, congratulated the ambassadors on their appointment and thanked them in advance for their work in spreading the virtues “of a unique tourist destination ”.
“We are counting on you to make Marbella and the entire Costa del Sol known; you have a sports background, but now it’s your turn not only to promote the golf courses, but also all the wonders that we have and that range from gastronomy to leisure and an impressive environment ”, she added.
The Solheim Cup is due to take place between September 18-24 at Finca Cortesin.
