Alanna Campbell (BOP), Amelia Garvey (Canterbury) and Rose Zheng (Auckland) are about to embark on the Zhangjiagang Shuangshan Golf Club, near Shanghai to represent New Zealand in the 39th edition of the Queen Sirikit Cup.

Starting this Wednesday, all eyes will be on the new-look Kiwi side who aim to match the efforts of last years team who recorded an impressive third place finish.

This young team will also relish the opportunity to gain experience at this level as they aim towards next years World Amateur Teams Championships in Ireland.

Travelling and supporting the 2017 team will be New Zealand Golfs National Coach Jay Carter who will look to bring the best out of this exciting bunch throughout one of the great weeks in womens amateur golf.

The event scoring format records the best two stroke-play scores daily for each team, while an individual prize is also up for grabs. New Zealand has won the Queen Sirikit Cup on just three occasions back in 1984, 1990 and the latest 1999.

The time difference works out very well for those who want to follow player progress with China just four hours behind New Zealand.
