Accor sponsors World Masters Golf Championship in Vietnam

The Accor hotel group join hands with golf experts Go Golfing and Golfasian to host the inaugural Accor Vietnam World Masters Golf Championship, held in Danang from September 6-12, 2015. After 20 years of staging successful World Masters tournaments in Australia, New Zealand and Thailand, Go Golfing has partnered with Golfasian to introduce this golfing tournament to Vietnam with Accor as the main sponsor.

World Masters Tournaments are open to club golfers aged 35 years and over. Competition is offered in age and handicap divisions. Playing with golfers of a similar age and standard, from all over the world, is a major draw card for World Masters events.

Accor’s Chief Operating Officer and golf enthusiast, Patrick Basset, says it is an honor to take part in such a major golf event. “We are excited to break new ground in our sports involvement in Vietnam with golf experts such as Go Golfing and Golfasian to launch the Accor Vietnam World Masters Golf Championship 2015. This tournament will welcome hundreds of golfers and onlookers, playing at Danang’s world-class golf courses, while pampering themselves in our best-in-class hotels. The ultimate objective of this tournament is to introduce Danang as a premium golf destination and bring attention to the accommodations, facilities and golf itineraries that are second to none in this region.”

“We have been working closely with Accor’s hotels and resorts for numerous years and our golf customers’ feedbacks have proven that they thoroughly enjoy their stay at the Accor properties” said Pascal Orczech, Director of Business Development of Golfasian, Asia’s largest inbound golf tour operator. “The Pullman Danang Beach Resort is a perfect fit for the Accor Vietnam World Masters Golf Championship 2015 as it provides all the amenities we look for in a tournament-host hotel. We are confident that golfers attending the event will enjoy every minute of their stay as well as the superb golf courses.”

Participants can choose to stay at the Pullman Danang Beach Resort which will host all tournament functions and dinners, while the Novotel Danang Premier Han River is another accommodation alternative.

“As a partner of the Accor Vietnam World Master Golf Championship 2015, we are so proud to be associated with this world-class golf event” said Timothy Nott, General Manager of Pullman Danang Beach Resort. “We are delighted to host Vietnam’s biggest 19th Hole festivities and golf presentations each night during the tournament as well as providing the luxurious beachside accommodation for the event. We are confident the Accor Vietnam World Master Golf Championship will be the new benchmark for Masters events in the region and look forward to many years of partnership to come,” he added.
