The Wales Ladies Championship of Europe was a women's professional golf tournament on the Ladies European Tour.

The tournament was first played in 1996 at Gleneagles in Scotland. It was titled as the McDonald's WPGA Championship and was the first event on the tour to be played solely for charity.[1] Following the withdrawal of McDonald's as sponsors after just four years, there was a one-year break before the tournament returned to the tour in 2001 with a new home in Wales. It was last played in 2010.
