Centara to host leading Asian amateur golf event
By The Nation
HUA HIN: -- Centara Hotels & Resorts will host the Centara World Masters amateur golf tournament in Hua Hin from June 10-16 next year.
The fifth edition of the tournament, which brings golfers from over 50 countries, is expected to be a greater attraction, as it combines a week of golf at some of Thailand’s best courses with social and entertainment activities in this famous seaside resort town.
The 2017 tournament, recently completed, was lauded by participants for its beautiful courses and excellent organisation, along with world class accommodations and gala events at Centara’s famous resort in Hua Hin.
Next year’s tournament will feature four outstanding courses. Players will enjoy one round each at Springfield Royal Country Club, Black Mountain, Banyan Golf Club and Imperial Lake View. Carts and caddies will be provided at each course, and each player will be assigned a caddie wearing a bib with the player’s name and country flag.
The tournament will be open to men and women over 35.
Centara Hotels & Resorts is the major sponsor of the event.
“At Centara, we have 37 hotels and resorts internationally, including many in golfing paradises such as Bangkok, Hua Hin, Pattaya, Samui, Phuket and Chiang Mai in Thailand, and Danang in Vietnam.
We look forward to welcoming many more golfers, friends and families not only to Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas, Hua Hin, for the acclaimed Centara World Masters event next year, but also to our array of city and tropical beachfront locations year-round,” said Thirayuth Chirativat, chief executive officer of Centara Hotels & Resorts.
