New Zealand has joined the Asia Golf Leaders Forum (AGLF) as a new member. The AGLF was launched in 2020 under the banner of developing women’s golf in the Asia-Pacific region and is a consultative body composed of 14 organizations from 13 countries, including Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, and Indonesia.
The New Zealand Golf Association signed a membership agreement on the 29th of last month. Dean Murphy, president of the New Zealand Golf Association, attended and decided to join forces for the common goal of developing women’s golf in the Asia-Pacific region. With New Zealand joining, the number of AGLF members has increased to 14 organizations in 13 countries.
Dean Murphy, president of the New Zealand Association, said, “We are delighted to be able to play a role in the development of women’s golf in the Asia-Pacific region, where New Zealand golf is emerging as the center of the world’s women’s golf world through the agreement.” New Zealand has over 400 golf courses and a thriving golf industry. ‘Golf genius’ Lydia Ko (26) is a world-class star born in New Zealand. 바카라
As a result of New Zealand’s AGLF membership, an agreement was reached in principle to hold the New Zealand Women’s Open again from 2024, which had not been held for the past five years. Preparations will begin in earnest soon.
AGLF has 7 companies and golf courses as members, including Hoban Construction, Baz, Yeoeun, Sky72, Solago CC, Yuseong CC, and GA Korea (Korea, Gold CC). R&A (Royal & Ancient) is also contributing to the development of women’s golf in Asia Pacific as a special member.
