Women's World Cup of Golf officials took a joint decision to consider moving the date of next year's event to the end of the 2009 season.

Although a date has not been finalised yet, the move is to create the best possible chance of attracting top golfers to South Africa.

The tournament was played in January for the past four years . It has never been won by local players, despite being hosted by South Africa since 2005.

It was won by Ai Miyazato, pictured, and Rui Kitada from Japan in 2005. The following year it was lifted by Annika Sorenstam and Liselotte Neumann from Sweden, Julietta Granada and Celeste Troche from Paraguay won it last year and Jennifer Rosales and Dorothy Delasin from the Philippines won it earlier this year.

Players from 20 different countries will play in a team format of two players each. Women's World Cup of Golf, CEO, Tania Fourie said: "This tournament gives us a wonderful opportunity to showcase the magnificence of South Africa as well as some of the best golf in the world."

With Laurette Maritz and Ashleigh Simon having represented South Africa the host nation in the past four years, players such as Stacy Bregman and Lee-Anne Pace will be vying for the top two spots in the South Africa's World Cup team for 2009.
