The inaugural Women’s Amateur Asia-Pacific Championship tees off at the Sentosa Golf Club, Singapore this week with a squad of six amateurs travelling to Singapore to represent New Zealand from 21-24 February.
New Zealand received six player invitations into the championship with Wenyung Keh, Amelia Garvey, Juliana Hung, Britney Dryland, Rose Zheng and Caryn Khoo all securing their place based on World Amateur Golf Rankings and availability.
For Garvey and Hung this is an fantastic opportunity to build on their international experience playing on a world class championship course. Garvey has just moved to America to begin her golf scholarship at the University of Southern California. Hung has a couple of big weeks ahead, following the Asia-Pacific Championship she will travel to Vietnam to compete at the Faldo Asia-Pacific Final along with Hiroki Miya and Kazuma Kobori who qualified at the national event held at Clearwater Golf Club in December.
The winner of the Women's Amateur Asia-Pacific Championship will receive an invitation to play in two major championships this year, the RICOH Women’s British Open and the ANA Inspiration, as well as a place in the starting field of the prestigious HSBC Women’s World Championship on the same course, the following week.
The event will be televised in over 70 countries and reach millions of homes around the world as we look to crown the first ever champion.
