Golfasian to Debut Series of Golf Tournaments in Phuket

BANGKOK (March 15, 2010) - Golfasian, the leading Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia golf tour operator, is pleased to announce an annual schedule of four tournaments per year to be held around Thailand. The tour will take in an event in Chang Mai, Hua Hin, Bangkok and Phuket.

Red Mountain Golf CourseThe tournaments will debut in Phuket in July 2010. This event is open to all players either travelling on their own, small groups as well as larger groups.

The tournaments, running for 7 days and 6 nights each, will be played over 4 rounds, at different courses, with a stableford competition accumulating over the week to result in the overall winner.

The organizer - Golfasian - emphasizes the enjoyable aspects of the tournaments, taking the best courses in each destination and offering players the chance to experience the thrill of competing in a real tournament and to meet other golfers in a sociable and competitive environment. Golfasian aims to create a loyal player base that will return to Thailand for future golf tournaments.

"I had played golf for years before playing in my first real tournament" said Graham Haslam, Director of Golf Tournaments at Golfasian, "It is a totally different feeling, I nearly missed the ball completely on the first tee because I was so nervous".

These Thailand golf tournaments will have daily winners and the usual nearest pin and longest drive each day, but the big prizes will be for the overall winners. Mark Siegel, Managing Director of Golfasian, mentioned that "The good thing about having this type of format using Stableford is one or two bad holes don’t really hurt in a 72 hole tournament, but you do need to be fairly consistent during the week to win!"

New Zealand PGA professional David Wickens, now living in Thailand said "It looks like great fun and I'd love to be a part of it!" Wickens is now onboard promoting the tournaments in his native NZ.

The tournaments will be very competitively priced for singles to join as they will receive the benefits (savings) of a group booking.

So pack your sunscreen, sun glasses, (lots of extra golf balls) and make your way to the next Golfasian Amateur Golf week for an unforgettable weeks golfing.
