Aiming to establish an annual “All Thailand Golf Tour” in Thailand’s leading tourism destination and promote Phuket Province as a sports tourism hub, Singha Laguna Phuket Open 2019 will be held during Thursday May 16 – Sunday May 19 at Laguna Golf Phuket as a co-sanctioned golf event with Asian Development Tour (ADT). First tee time starts at 7am daily, spectators welcome, entry is free.

Grandly certified with Official World Golf Ranking this year, the Open will see top professional players from within Thailand as well as in the region collect the score and rank their performance on world golf scale while vying for more than B2 million prize fund.

Mr Paul Wilson, group golf director, representing award-winning Laguna Golf Phuket, said “There will be several homegrown golfers playing in the tournament, emphasising Laguna Golf Phuket and Asian Development Tour’s shared commitment of developing the game in Asia and inspiring junior golfers.

I’d like to also congratulate All Thailand Golf Tour (ATGT) on being recognised in Official World Golf Ranking, an outstanding achievement that will take the professional golf community in Thailand to the next level. I believe working with a likeminded and committed partner like ATGT is part of the reason Laguna Phuket won gold as Best Sports Event Venue in Thailand” he concluded.
