Ladies Asian Golf Tour

The Ladies Asian Golf Tour is a women's professional golf tour that was established in 2005. At that time there were five established women's professional tours in the world, of which two were in Asia, namely the LPGA of Japan Tour and the LPGA of Korea Tour. Japan and South Korea are two of the top three powers in women's professional golf, alongside the United States. The Ladies Asian Golf Tour is effectively a tour for the rest of Asia. This is comparable to the position in men's golf, where Japan has its own Japan Golf Tour and the rest of Asia has the Asian Tour. Most of the players on the tour come from Asia, but there are also representatives of various other parts of the world.

One of the tournaments is co-sanctioned by the LPGA of Korea Tour, and the winner will receive a tour card on that tour.
