Aramco Team Series - Thai Country Club, Bangkok

Category: News, Tournaments


The Aramco Team Series is sanctioned by the Ladies European tour

The first of its kind, the Aramco Team Series is the first team event series on any professional tour. Welcoming the world’s best female golfers, the tournament will present winning titles for the best individual and team scores in the newest format in golf.

Using an ‘NFL-style’ draft system, each captain picks their first player, before being randomly allocated a third professional teammate and a competing amateur, largely made up of event partners. As well as competing for the team trophy, the professionals also vie for an individual title, and exciting purse.


The Format

36 teams of 4, battling it out over two days at Thai Country Club to become the fourth Aramco Team Series champions. Using a unique scoring system, and allowing an amateur to contribute to the final result of a professional tour event with a total prize fund of $1m, the Aramco Team Series, continues to bring a new level of excitement and entertainment to the Ladies European Tour. In 2022, the team event will be held over two days, with individuals making the cut for a final shoot out on the 3rd day.


A trio of Thailand’s top golfing superstars have all been confirmed for the Aramco Team Series - Bangkok, taking place at Thai Country Club on May 12-14.

A trio of Thailand’s top golfing superstars have all been confirmed for the Aramco Team Series - Bangkok, taking place at Thai Country Club on May 12-14.

Breakout international star Patty Tavatanakit, the world number 14, will make her Aramco Team Series debut in the unique team and individual format next month. Tavatanakit, 22, shot to fame in 2021 by winning her first major, followed by multiple top ten performances that catapulted her up the world rankings whilst also being crowned LPGA rookie of the year.

Former world number one and two-time major winner Ariya Jutanugarn is another big name confirmed to tee it up in Bangkok at the $1m Aramco-backed event. She will be joined by sister Moriya Jutanugarn, the world number 42, with a host of other up and coming Thai and Asian players also set to be confirmed. Last year’s debut Aramco Team Series season saw Thai world number five and 2021 LET Race to Costa del Sol winner Atthaya Thitikul narrowly lose in a play-off in London’s debut event.

Patty Tavatanakit said: “It’s amazing to see global tournaments like the Aramco Team Series come to my hometown of Bangkok. The ATS tournaments are providing really cool opportunities for players all over the world and the new wave of female talent in Thailand to get chances on the LET and impress in front of the world. There’s a real buzz for women’s golf in Thailand after some of our performances on the international stage so it’s a great chance to keep that momentum.”

The Aramco Team Series is golf’s first team event series on any professional tour – with visits to London, Sotogrande, New York and Jeddah following its opening Asian leg. The format, which includes a player-led draft at each event, gives more golfers tournament opportunities helped by teaming up with the best players on the planet. This season will also see a revised format for the event with the team event taking place over the first two days, with the third and final round for individuals making the cut in a last day shootout.

Ariya Jutanugarn added: “I’ve heard really positive things about the Aramco Team Series with a fresh format and the chance to play and connect with different players on the LET. It gives players a lot more to play for during a tournament week both as a team and as an individual. I’ve enjoyed success before in team formats alongside my sister Moriya – so I’m looking forward to seeing who I get to team up with in the draft and a chance to host them on home soil in Thailand.”

The Aramco Team Series Bangkok kicks off the 2022 tournaments at the Thai Country Club on May 12-14 before it heads to London (Centurion Club, June 16-18), Sotogrande (La Reserva Club De Sotogrande, August 18-20), New York (Venue TBC, October 13-15), and Jeddah (Royal Greens Golf & Country Club, November 9-11).

Majed Al Sorour, Deputy Chairman and CEO of Golf Saudi and the Saudi Golf Federation said: “The Aramco Team Series is bigger and better this year and it’s exciting to expand to Asia and one of golf’s fastest growing markets in Thailand. It’s a hotbed of talent with players now getting more opportunities to mix it with the LET’s very best players in different formats with global exposure. It’s a chance to showcase the growth of women’s sport, superstar names and the next generation – all from a perfect venue in Bangkok to kick off the new ATS season.”
