The Aramco Saudi Ladies International Presented by Public Investment Fund, due to take place at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club on March 19-22, has been postponed in light of the recent health advice and travel restrictions due to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The LET’s priority is to ensure that its players and all stakeholders are safe and the decision was made following advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Alexandra Armas, CEO of the LET, said: “There is no doubt that the last few weeks have been extremely challenging for sports and postponing next week’s tournament has not been an easy decision, but we fully appreciate the recent restrictions which have been introduced in respect of travel into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
“Even though this was not our desired outcome, I wish to thank the Promoter and event owner Golf Saudi for looking into every possible option to make this event happen. We were so impressed with their passion and efforts, and we will work closely with them to find a date in the future to deliver this historic event for our members.”
All parties are committed to rescheduling the tournament at some point later in the year, but with no date confirmed at this stage.
