NOTES:
Conducted by the International Golf Federation (formerly the World Amateur Golf Council), which comprises the national governing bodies of golf in more than 120 countries, the World Amateur Team Championships are a biennial international amateur golf competition rotated among three geographic zones: Asia-Pacific, Americas and Europe-African. A total of 53 teams will compete this year, topping the record of 52 set in 2010.

Each team, which has two or three players, plays 18 holes of stroke play for four days. In each round, the total of the two lowest scores by players from each team constitutes the team score for the round. The four-day (72-hole) total is the team's score for the championship. Players must be amateur golfers under the Rules of Amateur Status of either The R&A or the United States Golf Association. The winning team in the women's competition receives custody of the Espirito Santo Trophy for the ensuing two years. Members of the winning team receive gold medals; members of the second- place team receive silver medals; and members of the third-place team receive bronze medals. The lowest individual score in the championship is recognized at the respective awards ceremony, but no prize is awarded.

The American team will be represented by Austin Ernst, Erynne Lee and Lisa McCloskey, while Carol Semple Thompson will serve as the captain. Ernst won the 2011 NCAA Individual Championship as a freshman at LSU. Lee reached the quarterfinals at the 2012 U.S. Women's Amateur. McCloskey was the stroke-play medalist at the 2012 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links.

The tournament will be played on two courses in Turkey, the Old and New Courses at Gloria Golf Club. This is the first time that the World Amateur Team Championships will be staged in Turkey.

In 2010, Korea etched its name into the record book en route to a huge victory. The team shot a five-under 139 in the final round and finished at 30-under 546 to establish a new tournament scoring record, obliterating the former mark of 558 set by the United States in 1998. The Koreans won by an eye-opening 17 strokes over the U.S., but their margin of victory only tied the second-largest ever in championship history. The 1998 American team won by a shocking 21 shots.

In 2008, Sweden, behind the powerful team of Anna Nordqvist, Caroline Hedwall and Pernilla Lindberg, cruised to a 12-shot win over Spain, becoming a multiple winner of this championship. Held in Australia, the Swedish trio dominated the event, leading by 10 shots after the opening day, eight after round two, and by 11 following the third round. Sweden's 10-stroke lead after the first round on the par-73 East Course at The Grange Golf Club shattered the championship mark for leading margin through 18 holes by five strokes and its 275 through 36 holes was also a record. Sweden, the only team to have finished in the top 10 in all 24 competitions, won its second championship after taking the victory in Puerto Rico in 2004. Their wire-to-wire win was the first in 18 years, since the USA did so in 1990. Hedwall's four-day total of 280 was the low individual score by one over Nordqvist.

South Africa withstood a late rally from Sweden in 2006 to become the first victorious host nation since 1980. The two countries finished tied at 566, however, South Africa won after a tie-breaker. The first tie-breaker was still tied after the final-round, non-counting score was both 75. The second criteria, was the non-counting score from the third round, which South Africa's Ashleigh Simon shot 73 compared to Sweden's Sofie Andersson's 77. Kelli Shean and Stacy Bregman rounded out the winning South African team.

The 2014 tournament will be staged in Karuizawa, Japan at The Prince Hotel Resort. The championship courses will be the Iriyama & Oshitate Courses.
