Aramco Team Series 2023: How does the format work, where is it being held and who are the past winners?
The $5m Aramco Team Series returns for 2023 this week, when dozens of the world’s top women’s golfers will play for individual and team prizes in Singapore. Here is all you need to know about the series.
How the Aramco Team Series format works
Aramco Team Series events follow a unique format comprising both individual and team competitions, both offering $500,000 prize funds.
The field is divided into teams of four, with captains getting to pick one other player before being allocated a third professional and an amateur, which can be male or female.
Play takes place over three days, with the first two rounds deciding the outcome of the team competition and the individual prize being settled in the third and final round.
The team competition is based on a team’s two best scores at each hole, while the individual competition, which is restricted to the pros only, is normal stroke play.
The venues: Where the Aramco Team Series is being played in 2023
The Aramco Team Series is once again calling at five venues across three continents.
The difference this year, however, is that four of the five venues are new to the series, with the London leg – played at Centurion Club in St Albans – the only one to be retained.
Last year’s first stop, Bangkok, has been replaced by Singapore’s Laguna National Golf Resort Club, which is poised to host the curtain-raising tournament from Thursday.
With London moving to the middle slot, the Aramco Team Series heads to Florida for its second leg at Trump International Golf Club, West Palm Beach, from 19 to 21 May.
Centurion Club will become the first venue to host three Aramco Team Series events when the action returns to England from 14 to 16 July.
The stars of women’s golf then head east to Hong Kong Golf Club, which replaces Sotogrande in Spain as the penultimate leg of this year’s series, on 6 to 8 October.
And in a final change, the 2023 Aramco Team Series will culminate in Riyadh, which replaces Jeddah as the stage for the finale on 3 to 5 November.
