Dubai: The 2022 Ladies European Tour season is set to present the greatest number of tournaments and prize money in the organisation’s 44-year history. LET members will compete for a minimum of €24.5 million across 31 events in 2022. The total annual purse is up €4.5 million on 2021 and offers €13 million more than in 2019.

The Dubai Moonlight Classic will be held from October 26-28 on the Faldo Course at Emirates Golf Club, Dubai, UAE, with a prizefund of $285,000.

“On the back of a strong 2021 season, which featured 23 tournaments, 2022 is going to be a record-breaking year for the LET with the largest total purse and number of events in history,” said LET CEO Alexandra Armas. “We will be launching new events in Asia and South Africa and returning to various territories across Europe and further afield, so it’s looking very exciting for our international membership.

“We have never had such incredible support from partners across the industry and corporations who see the value in investing in the LET. Our players continue to set new performance standards. For example, this year’s Race to Costa del Sol winner, Atthaya Thitikul, reached No 18 on the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings, an amazing achievement which shows what is possible by playing on the LET. The victorious European Solheim Cup Team did women’s golf proud in Toledo, Ohio, winning for only the second time in the United States. We are thankful to all of our partners as we move into the third year of our successful joint-venture partnership with the LPGA.”
