The three-day competition will be held at the Orient Golf and Country Club in the city's Guishan District, offering a top prize of NT$600,000 (US$20,383), the Taiwan Ladies Professional Golf Association said at a press conference.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the competition is not open this year to foreign golfers, the association said.
When the tournament starts Thursday, defending champion Hou Yu-sang (侯羽桑), whose world ranking is No. 470, will come up against higher ranking Taiwanese competitors such as Hsu Wei-ling (徐薇淩), Lee Min (李旻), Phoebe Yao (姚宣榆), and Chen Yu-ju (陳宇茹).
