Hua Hin, Thailand, June 11, 2023 — Once again, the undeniable appeal of a four-round competitive amateur golf tournament infused with fun and camaraderie takes center stage in Hua Hin, Thailand. Over 400 golfers from 18 countries have converged on the illustrious ‘Royal City’ to participate in this week’s highly anticipated 8th Centara World Masters Golf Championship.

As the largest and most esteemed event of its kind in Asia, this tournament will span from Sunday through Friday, June 10th to 16th, held at Hua Hin’s premier courses, the renowned Black Mountain Golf Club and the prestigious Banyan Golf Club.

Having proudly hosted more than 2,000 golfers since its inception in 2014, this year sees the return of numerous players for their third, fourth, and even fifth participation. While the Covid pandemic interrupted play in 2020 and 2021, this edition would have marked the tournament’s remarkable 10th iteration had it not been for those unforeseen circumstances. The Centara World Masters was launched by Golfasian, a Thailand-based golf tour operator, and GoGolfing from Australia, both serving as visionary co-hosts.

This extraordinary tournament mirrors the structure and professionalism of renowned professional events, while maintaining a lighthearted and convivial atmosphere. Three age divisions for men, categorized into A, B, and C grades, as well as two divisions for women, featuring A and B grades, ensure that every participant has an equal chance to compete for prizes valued at more than US$30,000.

While Australian golfers make up the majority of the field, the event boasts a vibrant international presence with participants traveling from far-flung locations such as Norfolk Island, Pakistan, New Caledonia, Qatar, Japan, Malaysia, Portugal, New Zealand, India, the UK, UAE, USA, Thailand, Germany, Papua New Guinea, and South Africa.

“The triumphant return of the Centara World Masters revitalizes Thailand’s tourism landscape, uniting golfers from around the world in a harmonious swing and solidifying Thailand’s reputation as an unparalleled golfing paradise,” states Mark Siegel, the managing director of Golfasian and one of the esteemed co-hosts.

Peter McCarthy, the CEO of GoGolfing, adds, “Bringing together a multitude of golfers and partners from 18 countries for this cherished week of golf, camaraderie, and entertainment is an achievement worth celebrating. The immense joy that the Centara World Masters brings to participants reaffirms its status as the pinnacle tournament for club golfers throughout Asia.”

Furthermore, the success of this tournament has paved the way for similar multi-age, multi-division competitions for both men and women in captivating destinations like Pattaya and Phuket in Thailand, as well as Danang in Vietnam. These extraordinary events are also masterfully organized by the visionary minds at Golfasian and GoGolfing.

Year after year, the Centara World Masters proudly kicks off the tournament season, with Hua Hin serving as its radiant focal point. This picturesque city gained international acclaim as one of Thailand’s pioneering beach resort destinations in the 1920s when a visionary train line connected Bangkok to Malaysia and Singapore. This historic railway also laid the groundwork for Thailand’s very first golf course, the iconic Royal Hua Hin, which remains open to the public, inviting golf enthusiasts to embrace its heritage.

Notably, the Centara Grand Hotel, an epitome of heritage and elegance nestled against a stunning seaside backdrop, celebrated its centenary last year. Recognized as one of Asia’s premier heritage hotels, it not only provides accommodation for many participants but also serves as the magnificent venue for tournament functions held after each day’s play. The Centara Grand Hotel proudly assumes the role of the headline sponsor, further solidifying its commitment to the event’s success.

Joining this illustrious partnership are other esteemed sponsors, including the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Banyan Thailand, Chang, Mizuno, and Coca-Cola, collectively contributing to an unforgettable experience for all participants.

    • My wife and I booked a golf weekend to Yogyakarta (Indonesia). We wanted to play golf and visit the historic (UNESCO) temples. Golfasian created a custom tour package for us. All we had to do was show up at the airport. Everything else was taken care of. Very professional. We were able to relax, play 2 different courses (Merapi and Borobudur) and visited the Prambanan and Borobudur temples. We are already looking to use Golfasian for our next golf weekend getaway.

    • This is our second golf holiday organised by Golfasian. First was a trip to Thailand and our latest Vietnam. We can not fault the services provided by Golfasian, from the first email enquiry to the itinerary provide. Watches could be set for the pick ups and all drivers were very friendly, standards of hotels were excellent. All courses we played in both Thailand and Vietnam were excellent and some quite challenging. We would highly recommend using Golfasian and we will definitely be using them again. Thank you for making such a stress free holiday from start to finish

    • booked a 13 day golf package for our group. The package included 7 awesome courses from Bangkok to Hau Hin. In addition, they booked some day excursions from spa treatments, river boat cruises to Temple visits. From the moment we touched down a driver had a sign and the tour guide spoke great English and was very polite. I strongly recommend GolfAsian.

    • Recent trip to Phuket, everything organised by Golfasian, except flights. 3 courses in 3 days, all went without a hitch, from Pick up at Airport straight to the 1st course with plenty of time to spare till our Tee off thanks to their timely pick up and suggested Tee time. All on ground from then on went like clockwork, pick up at hotels, drop off at the courses and then back to the hotel. All the courses were expecting us and were well prepared, which made things extremely easy. Well organised, on time and stress free...what more can you wish for?
