Barry University women’s golfer Nicky Ferre was invited to compete in the World Amateur Team Championships in Karuizawa, Japan Sept. 3-6.

Ferre, a junior coming off a Second-Team All-American season for the NCAA Division II runner-up Buccaneers, will represent Venezuela in the team event.

The World Amateur Team Championships is a biennial international amateur golf competition rotated among three geographic zones, Asia-Pacific, American and European-African.

A men’s tournament will also be held Sept. 10-13. Competition will be held at the Iriyama Course and Oshitate Course located on the 108-hole, six-course Karuizawa 72 Golf Complex.

Each team has two or three players who compete in an 18-hole format. The two lowest scores from each team constitutes the team score for the round. The four-day, 72-hole total makes up the team’s score.

WATC’s first event was held at the Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland in Oct. 1958.
