The Ladies Professional Golf Association has unveiled the uniforms that the U.S. team will wear at the Solheim Cup tournament that will be held at Finca Cortesin in Andalusia, Spain, from Sept. 18 to 24.
Dunning, the official uniform supplier for the 2023 and 2024 seasons, will provide the U.S. team — including the athletes, caddies, team captain Stacy Lewis and assistant captains Morgan Pressel, Natalie Gulbis and Angela Stanford — with complete uniforms and outerwear to be worn during practice and play at this year’s competition.

Not surprisingly, the outfits sport a palette of red, white and blue and feature technical fabrics such as Coolmax with moisture wicking and breathability properties as well as stretch. Key pieces include a quarter-zip pullover, a hoodie and a vest and jacket pairing featuring PrimaLoft.
“Working with the Dunning team on designing our U.S. uniforms for 2023 and 2024 has been an incredible collaborative and interesting process,” said Lewis, a four-time U.S. Team competitor. “Their team is open to all the ideas we’ve brought to the table and their expertise in working with these performance fabrics has elevated those ideas into some beautiful uniform pieces.”
“The Solheim Cup is the absolute pinnacle of women’s competitive golf and we’re truly honored to be associated with the U.S. team and the event’s spirit of competition,” added Michael J. Setola, chief executive officer of Dunning. “Golfers often say there’s no greater honor than playing for your country, and as we strive to meet the performance needs of players at the highest levels of the game, we feel just that way, too.”
The Solheim Cup is held every two years and pits the best U.S. players against the top Europeans.
The collection will also be available for fans to purchase on the Dunning and Solheim Cup websites as well as at a select group of Dunning’s network of 1,500 country clubs, resorts and golf retailers across the U.S.
Dunning launched a women’s golf collection earlier this year. The company was founded by Ralph Dunning in 2001 and sold to Tharanco Lifestyle in 2011. Tharanco, a brand management and operating company, also owns the Greg Norman Collection label.
