The 91st Portuguese International Ladies' Amateur Championship is underway.
The four-round stroke play event, organised by the Portuguese Golf Federation, is regularly ranked as one of the strongest amateur championships on the continent.
Originally scheduled for 10 to 13 February, the event was postponed due to Covid-19 related public health measures in Portugal and is now taking place from 12 to 15 May.
Despite just one player from Great Britain & Ireland on the starting list (presumably due to Covid-19 related travel restrictions), the event has attracted a strong international field. 105 ladies representing 18 different countries will compete for this year's title.
Montado Golf Resort, host of the 2017 European Ladies' Team Championship will present the challenge to the players. The course is located next to the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, and will also host the Portuguese Men's International event next week.
Alessia Nobilio is the defending champion of the tournament. The Italian player carded a 15-under par total in January last year to win the event by eight shots over Spain's Carolina Lopez-Chacarra.
