Karrie Webb: Won her only Open title at Turnberry in 2002
The Ricoh Women's British Open will be staged at Turnberry for only the second time in 2015.
The famous Ailsa course at the Ayrshire links first hosted the tournament in 2002, when Australia's Karrie Webb clinched her sixth major title in a dominant two-year spell.
Webb said: "I am really pleased to hear that the Ricoh Women's British Open will be returning to Turnberry.
"I have wonderful memories of winning the 2002 Championship and I can't wait to return in 2015.
"Turnberry is one of the best courses I have played so I hope I can continue on from where I left off in 2002."
This year's event is being staged over the Old Course at St Andrews, with Royal Birkdale the venue in 2014.
Turnberry has hosted the Open Championship four times, most notably in 2009 when Tom Watson came agonisingly close to pulling off one of the greatest sporting upsets of all time.
The five-time champion needed a par at the last to become by far the oldest major champion in history at 59, but he missed a 10-foot putt for the win before losing out to Stewart Cink in a four-hole play-off.
