Malaysian Ladies Golf Association (MALGA)executive director, Datuk Rabeahtul Aloya Abbas said she hoped that the local lasses will step up to the challenge and emerge triumphant.

The domestic charge will be spearheaded by Genevieve Ling I-Rynn, Loy Hee Ying and seasoned campaigner Nur Durriyah Damian; who will carry the nation's challenge at the biennial games next month.
