The top golfers from Singapore and Malaysia will be squaring off in the inaugural Causeway Trophy in June.

The event, which is similar in format to the renowned Ryder Cup between Europe and USA, will be held at the Laguna National Golf and Country Club in Singapore for the next three years. Subsequent editions will be rotated between the two countries.

The top 10 players from the country's respective Order of Merits automatically qualify for the tournament. They must either be Singapore or Malaysian citizens.

Each captain is also allowed two picks, which are open to Permanent Residents as well.
