Like Céline Boutier or Nelly Korda
LET’s top 108 players will try to succeed the defending champion Celine Boutier – French No. 1 and current 17th in the world, the highest ranking for a Tricolore in the history of the game – and to see their name engraved on the tournament trophy, to join some of the greatest champions in women’s golf.
Like the American Nelly Kordagold medalist at the last Olympic Games, winner of French appointments in the Ladies European Tour in 2019.
Le Lacoste Ladies French Open also innovates by organizing an alliance during the first two rounds. On Thursday 15 and Friday 16 September, 36 amateurs will have the privilege of experiencing a professional tournament from the inside, as close as possible to the players, each sharing their game with three of them.
The tournament renews its support for the proettes, who have not been spared by the health crisis, and will offer them accommodation on site, within theGolf Hotelprestigious 4-star hotel of the Barrière group.
Ce Lacoste Ladies French Open “increased” with an allocation increased to 325 000 euros also has the ambition to create connections between cultures and communities, and it is in this spirit that it has adopted a new visual identity in this regard, created by the artist Marie Pressmar.
Thus, this 32nd edition will be placed under the sign of art, by exhibiting on the tournament site works collected by the artistic director Jeremiah Nassir. The objective is to allow golf enthusiasts to admire exceptional creations, and to encourage a new public to come to the course to discover them… and golf at the same time.
Deauville between boards and greens
In the same spirit, the city of Deauville will organize on the Planches, the iconic seaside promenade, a photo exhibition presenting famous film actresses, clubs in hand; a symbolic link between the Lacoste Ladies French Open and the famous American Film Festivalwhich will be held in Deauville the previous week.
Moreover, a giant putting green will be installed on the beach, in front of the Bar du Soleil, to allow everyone to learn about the little white ball.
