Billing itself as the largest pro-am tournament for women in the world, the Saudi Ladies International Pro-Am is a two-day charity event that takes place in the desert before the $4m 2018 Saudi Arabian LPGA Tour season begins.
USA’s Emily Pedersen represented her country in the Dubai Ladies Masters, and is also the current junior World no. 2.
The event takes place in the Saudi desert throughout the month of October, every year, and this year it’s being supported by MAFSA, who run courses across the region.
Many of the 2018 Saudi Arabian LPGA Tour players will also be present, including the remaining members of the LPGA team who played in the HSBC Women’s Champions at Lake Malaren in Switzerland, along with other representatives of the sport.
The elite field includes last year’s winner who returned to defend her crown and an additional 132 players with a combined scores of over 50,000 rounds.
Regardless of which team you support, the event celebrates the beautiful desert course in Saudi Arabia. From chic lines to fast flowing water, this venue has a variety of lush looking greens and sees off competitors with swings to rival any professional’s.
All events, including the weigh-in and opening ceremony on Tuesday, are taking place at the Majlis Desert Golf Club, located on the northwestern side of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
