|QUALITY GOLF PREPARES TO HOST A TRIO OF TOURNAMENTS
Quality Golf is delighted to announce that its three major clients in Asia will all be hosting professional tournaments in the second half of 2005.
Santiburi Samui Country Club, on Koh Samui, is set to welcome the Bangkok Airways Open, a US$200,000 Asian Tour event, from 13th -16th October; Thai Country Club will host the prestigious Volvo Masters of Asia, the US$600,000 Asian Tour Championship for its Top 60 players, from 8th - 11th December; and the Omega Hong Kong Open, a US$1m event co-sanctioned by the PGA European Tour and Asian Tour, will again be held at The Hong Kong Golf Club from 1st - 4th December.
“Hosting a professional tournament is an ideal way to showcase any golf facility as it attracts significant public interest, both in terms of attendance and the considerable television and print media coverage it creates. We are honoured by these exciting announcements from our clients and greatly look forward to preparing their facilities to international standards that will present a challenging examination for some of the world's leading professional golfers”, said Qualtiy Golf.
“For Santiburi Samui Country Club, it will be the first time that the course has held such a high profile event. Further to its recent 5 th place ranking amongst golf courses in Thailand by the readers of Asian Golf Monthly, the event will firmly place the course in the limelight in Southeast Asia due to its spectacular design on such dramatic terrain. For Thai Country Club, it reaffirms their unparalleled commitment to the 5-star golf industry and represents an exceptional opportunity to unveil the greens renovation programme that we have undertaken, re-grassing all 18 greens with state-of-the-art TifEagle bermudagrass. For The Hong Kong Golf Club, it will be the 47 th consecutive staging of the event, for which we have undertaken an extensive amount of minor renovations to improve the quality and playability level of the course for both the members and professional golfers” , said Qualtiy Golf.
