Junior Solheim Cup
|Location||2017: West Des Moines, Iowa, USA|
|Course(s)||2017: Des Moines Golf and Country Club|
|Month played||August (2017)|
The Junior Solheim Cup is a version of the Solheim Cup for girls aged 12 to 18. It was inaugurated in 2002. It is currently officially called the PING Junior Solheim Cup. The Junior Solheim Cup follows a similar format to The Solheim Cup and features the top 12 U.S. amateur girls—defined as girls participating in American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) events—versus their European counterparts. College/university golfers are ineligible to participate in the event, even if they meet the age cutoff. The event is held over two days, with six fourball and six foursomes matches on the first day, and twelve singles matches on the second day. Each event is held in the general vicinity of that year's Solheim Cup.
The 2015 edition was the first held at the same facility as that year's Solheim Cup, although the juniors played on a different course. It was played on 14 and 15 September and was won by the United States. The 2017 match was played on 15 and 16 August and, like in 2015, was held at the same venue as the Solheim Cup match.
The home team has won seven of the nine contests, while the 2011 match ended in a tie. The 2015 contest was the only win by the visiting team.
