Chantaco to be the capital of golf
 Print

During the first week of October, Chantaco is to become the capital of golf when from the 4th to the 7th, the 25th Lacoste Ladies French Open will be played on Chantaco golf course, in the heart of the Basque country.

Former world number one, Lorena Ochoa of Mexico, who retired from competition some two years ago, is amongst an exceptionally strong field of competitors, while the young Spanish Solheim Cup player Azahara Munoz will be amongst her greatest challengers for the trophy.  

Under the supervision of Patricia Meunier-Lebouc, non-playing patron of the tournament, the French elite will tee off at Chantaco. Leading French player Anne-Lise Caudal (Lacoste player and 13th on the LET ISPS Handa Order of Merit), is joined by Gwladys Nocera (26th), Sophie Giquel-Bettan (39th), Caroline Afonso (54th), Jade Schaeffer (69th) and Virginie Lagoutte-Clément (90th).

The “local” basque players, from nearby Spain, include Tania Elosegui, Carlota Ciganda and Maria Hernandez.

The French and Spanish players will be challenged by the leading Europeans including three-time French Open winner Trish Johnson, Laura Davies, Lydia Hall, Becky Brewerton, Carly Booth, Maria Hjorth and Pernilla Lindberg as well as recent tournament champions Stacey Keating and Karen Lunn of Australia, the French Open champion in 1997.
