Over 480 Competitors Take Part in Asia’s Biggest Golf Tournament
While the golf media are currently focused on the PGA and PIF, one major golf tournament is going ahead this week without any political issues.
The Centara World Masters Golf Championship has attracted over 480 amateurs to Hua Hin in Thailand.
Now in its 8th year, the seven-day event brings together both male and female golf vacationers from over 18 countries to compete at two of Thailand’s top championship courses, Black Mountain and Banyan.
With practice days, sponsors hoarding around the courses, and all caddies wearing bibs with players’ names and countries, the tournament is run just like a professional tour event.
Apart from the competition, there are nightly parties, a major gala dinner, and thousands are raised for local charities.
Golfasian’s CEO Mark Siegel said, “We are extremely grateful to for all the courses and their caddies, plus our main sponsors Centara and Amazing Thailand for helping us to create such an incredible event. The impact it has on tourism and the local community is immense, and we are already planning to add new locations and venues to our 2024 schedule.”
Over 1,000 golf vacationers have already confirmed their participation in this week’s event and similar events in 2023 in Pattaya, Phuket, and Vietnam’s Danang later this year.
