Phuket, 16 October, 2018 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Beijing Office is partnering China’s luxury travel company Sino Noble to organise the “Amazing Thailand All Star Golf Invitation Tournament” in Phuket from 15 to 18 October, 2018.
The event offers 20 famous Chinese movie stars, professional athletes and celebrities the chance to experience Phuket’s world renown golf facilities. They will tee off at the Red Mountain Golf Club, Blue Canyon Country Club and Loch Palm Golf Club, considered three of the most challenging championship quality golf courses in Thailand.
Mrs. Titiporn Manenate (above photo), TAT Executive Director of East Asia Region, said: “Thailand offers some of Asia’s finest golf courses across the country. There are over 200 golf courses open all year charging reasonable green fees. This makes Thailand a preferred golf destination for golfers from around the world, especially visitors from colder climates.
“There are over one million golfers and 400 golf courses across China. It has more than 40 golf courses in Beijing alone, attracting over 100,000 golfers a week for six months a year. Chinese golfers seek warmer destinations during winter, and we want to position Phuket on the top of their mind as the preferred golfing paradise.”
