Qatar to Debut at Women's Amateur Asia-Pacific Golf Championship

Qatar and Lebanon will make their debuts in the Women's Amateur Asia-Pacific (WAAP) championship, taking place at the Singapore Island Country Club from March 9th to 12th.

The championship will feature Women golfers Nada Mir from Qatar and Vanessa Richani from Lebanon on the greens for the first time.

Taimur Hassan Amin, Chairman of the Asia-Pacific Golf Confederation (APGC), said: "It's great that young players from Qatar and Lebanon have qualified for the WAAP through the WAGR. I'm hoping this will motivate young ladies in the Arab region, and other countries, to try harder to improve and take advantage of this unique opportunity to develop their game." 

The WAAP will feature a field of 85 players from 22 countries from several countries including Japan, Korea, Thailand, Chinese Taipei, and Australia. 

The tournament is considered a unique opportunity to develop the game of upcoming golfers. 

Ting-Hsuan Huang captured the gold title in the 2022 tournament and claimed the first title for Chinese Taipei at Slam Country Club in Thailand.
