Time is running out for spectators to take advantage of the LGU’s special discounted season ticket offer.

The discounted season ticket at price of £30 will only be available until Thursday 1st May 2008. This ticket allows entry to the Old Course, St Andrews for all three exciting days of golf from the top women amateurs of Great Britain and the United States.

The 2008 Curtis Cup is a ticket only event with a capacity of 8,000 spectators each day. Tickets will not be available at the gate.

Susan Simpson, the LGU’s director of championships, said, “Interest in this historical match is high and I would advise you to purchase your ticket as soon as possible and avoid disappointment.”

As a bonus, all Curtis Cup ticket holders will be entitled to a 25% discount on green fees at The Duke’s Course, St Andrews, during the week of the Curtis Cup.

The Curtis Cup was donated by the sisters Harriot and Margaret Curtis in 1927 and is inscribed: “to stimulate friendly rivalry among the women golfers of many lands.” However, largely due to financial reasons, the first official match was not played until 1932 at Wentworth where the US beat GB&I 5½ – 3½.

In the series the US teams have won 25 matches, GB&I teams 6, with three matches halved. However, since 1984 the results have been much closer with four wins each and one halved match.
