Ladies European Tour

The Ladies European Tour (LET for short) is an annual series of golf tournaments for professional women golfers. It is held mainly in Europe, as well as in Australia, South Africa and Dubai.

The tournament series was introduced in 1979 and, since then, has had difficulties establishing itself alongside the very popular American women’s tournament series LPGA Tour. The two most important tournaments by far, the Evian Championship in France and the Women’s British Open in England, were held together with the American LPGA. The LET also organises the Solheim Cup alternately with the LPGA..

The prize money for individual tournaments ranges between EUR 300,000 and USD 4.5 million, in the case of the Women’s British Open. Until 2012, the Deutsche Bank Ladies Open in Losone was held on the LET. Since then, there have been repeated endeavours to hold a tournament at this level in Switzerland.
