Mission Hills China yesterday announced a new ladies’ tournament for 2012: the World Ladies Championships, to be held in March.

The event, which will be co-sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour and the China LPGA Tour, will be hosted by the China Golf Association and the Department of Culture of Radio, Television, Publication and Sports of Hainan Province.

"The stage has long been set for a brand new world women’s golf championship in the professional game and we are very glad to see it finally happen," said vice chairman of Mission Hills Golf Club Tenniel Chu.

"We are very thankful to the CGA, LET, China LPGA Tour and all the other parties for their collaborative input and contributions to this new event."

A three-in-one format will make the tournament unique, and include 54 hole individual play, professional team play, and individual amateur play.

The women’s world golf rankings will dictate invitations for both the individual and team categories, with the European Tour Order of Merit also being taken into consideration for the 108 player individual play field.

Each of the 18 countries and regions will field one team of two players except for host nation China, which will have two.

Top ranking players will be invited from the Ladies European Tour, China LPGA Tour, Ladies Professional Golf Association, Korean Professional Ladies Golf Association, Ladies Professional Golfers’ Association of Japan and Australian Ladies Professional Golf.
