The Thailand swing will start with the MahaSamutr Masters, sponsored by MahaSamutr Country Club in Hua Hin, a 54-hole tournament hosted by the Banyan Golf Club from May 2nd to 4th. The MENA Tour, whose ambassador is Ryder Captain Darren Clarke, is an initiative by the Sheikh Maktoum Golf Foundation.

 

Last year, professional and amateur players from more than 20 countries competed, and in 2017 the tour will include 16 tournaments held in Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Pattana Golf Club and Resort in Chonburi will be the newest stop on the tour that first visited Thailand in 2016 with Banyan Golf Club in Hua Hin and Mountain Creek Golf Resort in Korat playing host to one event each.

 

The tour will visit Korat for the Mountain Creek Open the following week on May 8-10 at the Seve Ballesterosdesigned course. The final of this year’s Thailand swing will be the 72-hole Pattana Golf Championship, sponsored and hosted by the Pattana Golf Club and Resort in Chonburi on May 16-19. All three tournaments will be shown on TV across the world, including Fox Sports and True Sports in Asia.

To support this year’s event, MahaSamutr Country Club will also be offering a special promotion for new members competing in the Pro-Am tournament on April 30, to get the chance to win a spot at the Dean & Deluca Invitational Pro -Am at Fort Worth in Texas. Stacey Walton the General Manager and Director of Banyan Golf Club, said: “Banyan GC is proud to be host venue for a second edition of the MENA Tour to build on the success of last year.

 

We have two objectives in mind and that is the commercial aspect from the media exposure MENA tour provides our club and CSR to promote the development of golf in Asia by providing players the opportunity to compete at a professional standard in Thailand.” The MENA Tour’s official 2017 season runs from March to December, and culminates with the Tour Championship in Al Ain.
