Tanah Merah to Host World Amateur Team Championships

Tanah Merah Country Club’s Tampines Course will stage the World Amateur Team Championships in 2025.

Paris, France: Singapore’s Tanah Merah Country Club (TMCC) has been selected as the site of the 2025 World Amateur Team Championships.

To be hosted by the Singapore Golf Association (SGA), the event that features the best male and female amateurs from around the world will be held on the Tampines Course at TMCC, a Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

Tan Chong Huat, President of the SGA, said: “We are honoured to be selected to host the World Amateur Team Championships in 2025. We would like to thank the International Golf Federation (IGF) and all national Federation members for giving us this opportunity to further our mission to promote the game of golf in Singapore and the entire region.

“This will be the first time Singapore will host this prestigious event and we look forward to welcoming top golfers and officials from around the world to our island.”

At its biennial meeting on the eve of the 2022 Eisenhower Trophy in Paris, the IGF also announced that the 2027 championships will be staged in Morocco at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam.

“The IGF was fortunate to have two outstanding members bid for the 2025 World Amateur Team Championships. The biennial meeting recognised this and selected Singapore Golf Association as the host for 2025 and Royal Moroccan Golf Federation as the host for the 2027 World Amateur Team Championships,” said IGF Executive Director Antony Scanlon.

“We have no doubt that both Federations will be outstanding hosts for the leading amateur players in the world and that our athletes will be warmly welcomed and have a fantastic experience in both countries,” he added.

Jalil Benazzouz, President of the Sports Commission of the Royal Moroccan Golf Federation, said: “The Royal Moroccan Golf Federation, chaired by His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Rachid, is honoured to host the World Amateur Team Championships in 2027.

“These championships are the flagship events of world golf, to which Morocco has attached great value for more than 50 years. The hosting of WATC 2027 in Morocco is an important part of our strategy to promote national golf on a large scale and to significantly increase the number of licensees, especially among ladies and young people, and make Morocco known as a quality golf destination. We are excited to receive all the players.”

Both championships feature the world’s leading amateurs and are played over 72 holes of stroke play. Each country is represented by a team of two or three players.

The men’s competition of the 2022 World Amateur Team Championship, hosted by the French Golf Federation, begans yesterday at Le Golf National and Golf de Saint-Nom-La- Bretèche in Paris, France, with 72 teams competing.

The 2022 Women’s World Amateur Team Championship concluded last Saturday with Sweden claiming its third Espirito Santo Trophy in a tie-breaker over the United States. Featuring Mizuki Hashimoto, the reigning Women’s Amateur Asia-Pacific champion, and Saki Baba, the US Women’s Amateur champion, Japan claimed the bronze medal. A total of 56 teams competed in the championship.

The 2023 championships will be played in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
