The Ladies European Tour (LET) announced this Thursday an additional tournament to the 2023 calendar that will take place in November in Mallorca, a week before the end of the season of the Race to Costa del Sol.

Let, schedule

Emotion Sports Spain will be the promoter of the Mallorca Ladies Open and it will be played at Golf Son Muntaner, which previously hosted the DP World Tour Mallorca Golf Open in 2022.

Golf Son Muntaner, inaugurated in 2000, was designed by architect Kurt Rossknecht. The tournament, which has the support of the Mallorca Tourist Board, has signed a three-year agreement and this 2023 edition will take place from November 16 to 18.

The 'field' will be made up of 72 players, 64 from the LET and eight guests. It will be a 54-hole stroke play tournament without a cut, with a prize pool of 400,000 euros. Official World Golf Ranking points and Race to Costa del Sol points will be awarded.

The Rules of Golf are a set of standard rules and procedures by which the sport of golf should be played. They are jointly written and administered by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, the governing body of golf throughout the world, outside of the United States and Mexico, which are the responsibility of the United States Golf Association.

An expert commission made up of members of the R&A and USGA oversees and refines the rules every four years. The latest revision is effective January 1, 2016. Changes to the rules of golf generally fall into two main categories: those that improve understanding and those that in certain cases reduce penalties to ensure balance.

The rule book, entitled "Rules of Golf", is published on a regular basis and also includes rules governing amateur status. In Italy it is up to Federgolf to supervise the competitions by enforcing the rules issued by the R & A, checking that these rules are observed by the Clubs, Associations and their members and managing the resulting sporting justice, protecting their interests abroad.

The rules of golf are relatively complicated compared to other sports because they are applied outdoors, close to nature and animals. Respect for the rules is a basic element in the game of golf, which, almost always based on the self-control and free conscience of the players, often sees distorted results, consciously at times, but often unconsciously or through carelessness, due to non-compliance on the part of many players of the game rules.

In addition to rules, golf adheres to a code of conduct, known as etiquette, which generally means playing the round with due respect for the golf course and other players. Etiquette is an essential component of this sport.
