The Solheim Cup is a biennial golf tournament contested by teams representing Europe and the United States. While the tournament will be held at Inverness Club, all off-course festivities will be held in downtown. Opening Ceremonies are on Friday, September 3 with the tournament ending Monday, September 6. 


The first Cup was held in 1990 and has grown in popularity ever since. Named after Karsten Solheim, a Norwegian-American golf club manufacturer, the event draws fans from throughout the United States and Europe. Over 150,000 enthusiasts are expected to come to Toledo to watch and cheer on their team.


Downtown Toledo will welcome them with 80 restaurants to choose from and a week of activities. Regional partners such as the Toledo Museum of Art, Imagination Station, Metroparks Toledo and others will also feature golf-themed events and roll out the red carpet.
