Professional Tournaments ... How Can it Impact Your Club?
Professional golf tournaments. Do you remember the days when Asia hardly had any professional golf tournaments. Then came along the Asian Tour which has grown over the years. We now have another major professional tour in Asia - the OneAsia Tour.
Together with professional tours in Japan, South Korea, China, Thailand and India, professional tournaments have become a major feature on the regular golfing calendar.
Asia is also growing in importance for foreign professional tours. These days, the PGA Tour of America, the European Tour and the LPGA Tour all stage events in Asia. In years to come, this trend will grow.
In light of this anticipated growth, a special panel session will be staged at the 2012 Asia Pacific Golf Summit to be staged in the oil-rich Sultanate of Brunei on December 11-13.
The panel will be chaired by Paul Stringer, Executive Vice President of Nicklaus Design.
The panel will comprise:
Mission Hills Group
Black Mountain Golf Club, Hua Hin, Thailand
Senior Vice President
IMG Golf Management Services
Royale Jakarta Golf Club, Indonesia
"This panel session is expected to be a big draw at the 2012 Asia Pacific Golf Summit and we expect it to generate a great deal of interest amongst golf course owners and the professional tour operators," said Mike Sebastian, chief executive officer of the Asia Pacific Golf Group, the owner and producer of the Summit.
