The third Women’s Amateur Asia-Pacific (WAAP) championship has been rescheduled to September 30 – 3 October 3, 2021, due to the continuing uncertainty created by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The venue will remain at Siam Country Club’s Waterside Course in the championship’s first visit to Thailand. The prestigious event was originally scheduled for February 12-15 this year and was postponed to October 7-10 and subsequently to February 4-7, 2021. The latest change comes as the world continues to battle the spread of Covid-19.
Established in 2018, the WAAP was developed by The R&A and the Asia-Pacific Golf Confederation (APGC) to unearth developing talent and provide a pathway for Asia’s elite women amateurs to emerge on the international stage. The winner earns invitations to play in the AIG Women’s British Open, the Honda LPGA Thailand, the Hana Financial Group Championship and the Augusta National Women’s Amateur.
The 2021 tournament will be supported by the Tourism Authority of Thailand and the Sports Authority of Thailand plus a number of partners including Rolex, Samsung, Hana Financial Group, Kabaya Holdings and Trust Golf.
The inaugural championship at Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore was won by Thailand’s Atthaya Thitikul, wile Yuka Yasuda triumphed on home soil in last year’s edition at The Royal Golf Club in Hokata, Japan.
