Conducted by the International Golf Federation, which comprises national governing bodies of golf in more than 120 countries, the Women's World Amateur Team Championship is a biennial international amateur competition, which is rotated among three geographic zones: Asia-Pacific, Americas and Europe-Africa. This year the event is hosted by the Asociacion Argentina de Golf. The teams play for the Espirito Santo Trophy.
Each team has two or three players and plays 18 holes of stroke play for four days. In each round, the total of the two lowest scores by players from each team constitutes the team score for the round. The four-day (72 holes) total is the team's score for the championship.
