The HSBC Women's Champions is a women's professional golf tournament on the LPGA Tour. It made its debut in 2008 and its first champion was top-ranked Lorena Ochoa of Mexico, who won by 11 strokes. The tournament was played on the Garden Course of the Tanah Merah Country Club in eastern Singapore, adjacent to Singapore Changi Airport from 2008 to 2012. It is now played at the Serapong Course at the Sentosa Golf Club in Sentosa.
HSBC, one of the world's largest financial organizations, is the title sponsor of the tournament. HSBC also sponsors several events on the PGA Tour and from 2005 through 2007 sponsored the HSBC Women's World Match Play Championship on the LPGA Tour.
In 2008 and 2009, entrance in the tournament was open to 78 of the world's top golfers, based on world rankings, recent tour wins, and other criteria. The total purse in the first two years was US$2 million, with the winner's share at $300,000. In 2010, the field was reduced to 63 players and the purse reduced to $1.3 million. The purse increased to $1.4 million in 2011.
As a limited field tournament, there is no cut and all players in the field play all four rounds.
