Germany will host the Solheim Cup event for the first time after Frankfurt's St Leon-Rot Golf Club was selected as the 2015 course.

The St Leon-Rot Golf Club in Frankfurt has been chosen to host the 2015 Solheim Cup.

It is the first time that Germany will entertain the women's equivalent of the biennial United States of America vs. Europe team event.

The course has previously held the European men's Tour's Deutsche Bank SAP Open, and native golfer Sandra Gal is excited about the prospect of playing on home soil.

She said: "It will be a fantastic experience for our golf in Germany. I am sure my home country will be a great host."

Europe are the defending champions ahead of the 2013 event in Colorado.
