The Women’s Amateur Asia-Pacific golf championship has been developed by The R&A and Asia-Pacific Golf Confederation to unearth emerging talent and provide a pathway for Asia’s elite female amateurs to the international stage.
The winner earns invitations to play in two major championships - the AIG Women’s British Open and the ANA Inspiration, as well as an exemption for the Augusta National Women’s Amateur.
The inaugural championship was won by Thailand’s Atthaya Thitikul in Singapore. The 15-year-old secured a dramatic wire-to-wire victory following a four-way play-off at Sentosa Golf Club.
In 2019, the Women’s Amateur Asia-Pacific will be played at The Royal Golf Club in Japan from April 25-28.
