The Rose Ladies Series is set to return in 2023, with five events each offering a £10,000 prize
This year the Rose Ladies Series has taken us by surprise before the speculation can mount up as to whether we'll see the Series for a fourth year. We normally have to wait until March to hear what is being planned but this year they have got their exciting news out early.
Started in 2020 by LET player Liz Young, the Rose Ladies Series has become a very welcome fixture on the women’s professional circuit. Although the emphasis had to shift when the LPGA and LET schedules went back to normal after the pandemic, there is no denying that these events provide a fantastic opportunity for professional women and high-ranking amateurs.
Looking at the 2023 dates, the Rose Ladies Series has managed to pick a gap in the LET schedule and a relatively quiet time on the LETAS schedule too.
2023 Rose Ladies Series schedule
Like last year the Rose Ladies Series schedule features five events at fantastic locations, all with a £10,000 winner's cheque.
West Lancashire Golf Club and Bearwood Lakes will again host these popular events with Wentworth playing host a second time but on the East Course, whilst Southport & Ainsdale and The Grove are new additions to this year's schedule.
The announcement across the Rose Ladies Series social media channels at 12pm today (February 10):
It is an impressive line-up:
Tuesday April 11 - West Lancashire Golf Club
Thursday April 13 - Southport & Ainsdale Golf Club
Thursday April 20 - Wentworth (East)
Tuesday April 25 - Bearwood Lakes Golf Club
Tuesday May 2 - The Grove
Justin Rose released a statement via the Rose Ladies Golf social channels:
"We're announcing today the fourth year of the Rose Ladies Series, I can't believe how time flies. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the ladies who have competed and supported the Rose Ladies Series it's because of you guys it has been a success and it's an honour for kate and I to keep it going."
Unlike last year when there were a few clashes with the Asian swing on the LET, this year the events are taking place when the tour has a month's break. As for the LETAS, there is the Terre Blanche Ladies Open on April 13-15, but there are still opportunities for these players to play in Rose Ladies Series events.
Looking at the way the Series has fallen, you would believe that these events will draw in a strong playing field. There's no news as yet as to whether there will be spectators but if there are, it's a fantastic opportunity to watch women's professional golf in England.
We're really pleased to see the Rose Ladies Series return for a fourth year, especially since the Rose Ladies Open was successfully launched on the LETAS last year. The calibre of locations, impressive prize money and potential strength of field just underline how important the continued support from Kate and Justin Rose and the other sponsors involved is to women's professional golf in the UK.
