The inaugural Saudi Ladies International, the first female professional golf tournament to be played in Saudi Arabia, has been moved to October 8-11, following its recent postponement due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
A new date for the $1 million event at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club was agreed by tournament promoters and owners, Golf Saudi and the Ladies European Tour, which will see the world’s finest golfing talent arrive on Saudi shores.
“We will, of course, continue to work closely with health authorities both domestically and across the region in the interim but are hopeful that we will be able to bring this momentous occasion to Saudi Arabia in six months’ time,” said His Excellency Yasir O. Al-Rumayyan, Chairman of the Saudi Golf Federation and Golf Saudi.
