History of Vietnam Lady Golf Tournament

In 2012, for the first time, the Vietnam Golf Association decided to separate the Female section in the National Championship to make it be a National Lady Championship for Vietnamese female golfers, in order to develop the lady golf movement, as well as promote the sport to the community. At the same time, honouring the beauty of the ladies on the course, this has received great response and support from golfers at home and abroad.

From 2012 to 2017, the Vietnam Lady Championship has continuously maintained two National Championship tables (Gross score), Movement table (Calculating NET score) and Group section, these attracted a lot of female golfers of all levels to participate and contributed greatly to the strong development of the golf movement for women in Vietnam. It is from this playground, the Vietnam National Golf Team found out Nguyen Thao My (Champion of 2014, 2015), Hanako Kawasaki (Champion of 2016,2018), Doan Xuan Khue Minh (Champion of 2017) and a series of young female golfers like Tran Chieu Duong, Ngo Le Hoang Nam Phuong, Joung Sun Mi...

The year 2018 marked a turning point for the female golf movement when, for the first time, the Vietnam Lady Amateur Championship was opened to international amateur golfers to participate and it was also the first time the tournament was counted to WAGR, turning into a high achievement tournament for the female golfer. The Movement section using NET score in 2018 is still maintained but the competitiveness, as well as the extreme environment, have partly affected the wide development of Vietnamese female golf when the number of women who dare to challenge themselves in a playground that has been extended to the regional scale is very limited.

Immediately after the 2018 Vietnam Lady Amateur Open (VLAO), the Directors of the Vietnam Golf Association re-evaluated the 7-year-outstanding-development of the Vietnam Lady Championship and recognized that the mission to expand the women's golf movement has been successfully completed, and it's time to bring the tournament to an international level, with an open playing field for top female golfers. Accordingly, in 2019, VLAO - a top extreme playing field will be held together with the Vietnam Amateur Open (VAO) for male, takes place in the summer vacation of young golfers returning from abroad. The Vietnam Lady Individual and Group Championship will take place in late October 2019, with the ideal weather and continues the mission to develop the female golf movement in Vietnam.
