Patsy Hankins Trophy

QA Qatar



The Patsy Hankins Trophy is played between two teams of twelve lady amateur golfers representing Europe and Asia-Pacific. There will be three days of play. The first two days will comprise five foursomes matches each morning and five four-ball matches each afternoon. On the final day, all twelve team players will compete in singles match play. A win will count as one point, a half yields half a point and a lost match will return zero. In the event of a tie, the trophy shall be retained by the holders.


Patsy Hankins (1945-2015), was one of the most respected golf administrators New Zealand has produced. Her legacy as a trailblazer in golf administration grew due to her long list of achievements and kind and gentle approach. From fostering the development of the women’s game to playing a key role in the amalgamation of men’s and women’s golf, Patsy was incredibly influential and will leave a long lasting legacy in the game not only in New Zealand but around the world. Patsy was an accomplished player, representing Bay of Plenty Thames Valley, but it was in administration that she really made her mark.
Patsy progressed to the Board of Women’s Golf New Zealand in 2000 and four years later became their Chair. It was at this time that she really started to influence. The process of the amalgamation of men’s and women’s golf was not easy and it took a good two years to finalise the relationship. Patsy was a key figure, always remaining positive and realizing that this would only be good for our game. When this happened and New Zealand Golf Incorporated came to being, Patsy was elected the first President, a reflection of the esteem in which she was held. In 2012 Patsy Hankins was elected Women’s Chairman of the IGF, a confirmation of her wonderful abilities as a contributor to the game. Her appointment was one of the biggest achievements by a New Zealand golf administrator. Not one to rest on those laurels, Patsy was bestowed one of the greatest honours in golf when she was offered membership at the Royal and Ancient Golf Club and was one of seven women who accepted membership to the prestigious club. Only shortly before her passing Patsy travelled to the home of golf where she became the inaugural Women’s Net Medal winner at the Autumn Meeting for members of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews.


The World Amateur Golf Ranking will be used as the main reference in addition to a number of captain’s picks. According to the match conditions, no more than two players may be selected from the same country.

The Doha Golf Club was built from 1994 to 1996 and opened in 1997.

The Doha Golf Club was built from 1994 to 1996 and opened in 1997. It includes an 18 hole Championship Course, a 9 hole Academy Course, an enormous driving range and short game practice areas, 8 artificial lakes, graceful landscaping and a beautiful clubhouse designed in the old traditional Arabic style.

The golf course is designed by Peter Harradine. 

The 18 hole championship course is a tough course from the back tees and offers many strategic and heroic holes where the scratch golfer can test his skills. The course has been designed with 2 starting and finishing holes which maximizes both the playing flexibility and the number of daily playing rounds because of the returning 9 features.

Our signature hole is hole 16. The line off the tee for the longer hitters is over the large rock formation, which hides your view of the green. Taking this option can set you up with a relatively easy birdie chance but can also set you up for an easy double bogey if your ball hits the rock. The percentage shot is right of the rock, which will leave a short iron shot in to the green. The designer created this hole around an existing jebel which makes it the most unique looking hole on the course and one of Harradine's best designed holes.
