The Hero Women’s Indian Open, now in its 15th year, is the ultimate proof of the rapid strides made by Women’s Professional Golf in India. The flagship women's golf event of the region is sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour and attracts the very best of talent from across the globe, with most players coming from Europe and Asia.
The 2023 edition of Hero Women's Indian Open offers a prize purse of US$ 400,000 and will be held from October 19-22, 2023 at the picturesque DLF Golf and Country Club in Gurugram.
Scheduled in the latter half of the season, the Hero Women’s Indian Open is an exciting halt for all participants, since the Race to Costa del Sol (season-long competition to crown the LET’s number one player) gets really intense.
The tournament, which was first held in 2007, offers an opportunity to talented young Indian women golfers to test their skills against some of their overseas counterparts. The field for the Women’s Indian Open has consisted of some marquee players, and the field for this year’s edition is already appearing impressive. Four of the top five players on the Race to Costa del Sol have entered the event - No. 2 Johanna Gustavsson of Sweden, No. 3 Ana Pelaez Trivino of Spain, No. 4 Diksha Dagar of India and No. 5 Trichat Cheenglab of Thailand, who is also leading the race for Rookie of the Year standings on the LET. Former champions in the field will include Christine Wolf (2019), Becky Morgan (2018) and Camille Chevalier (2017).
In-form Diksha Dagar, the highest ranked Indian on LET, will lead the Indian challenge at this year's edition of Hero Women's Indian Open, which will have a field of 120 players from approximately 27 countries.
