Following the enormous success of the inaugural 2014 Centara World Masters Golf Championship, Golfasian and Australia’s Go Golfing announced an expanded event to be held again in the city of Hua Hin, Thailand from 14-19 June 2015.
The biggest event of its kind in Asia, the tournament quickly earned a reputation as Asia’s best week of amateur golf. 500 competitors from 23 countries were unanimous in their praise of the golf courses, caddies, event organization and social functions. Further enhancements have been made to the 2015 program to ensure it is even more enjoyable.
The tournament is open to male and female golfers aged 35 and over. There are 15 divisions based on age and handicap. Playing with golfers similar in age and standard is one of the event’s great attractions. At the heart of its success is the camaraderie cultivated among participants.
The 2015 Centara World Masters Golf Championship will again see participants play a selection of Hua Hin’s world class golf resorts with all the trappings of a major professional event; details include competitor bibs worn by their caddies, embossed with participant names and flag of origin just like the US Masters at Augusta National. Black Mountain, home to the recently announced co-sanctioned European/Asia Tour 2015 Thailand Classic, Banyan, Majestic Creek and Imperial Lakeview combine for the ultimate golf experience. There are social events each night at the beautiful Centara Grand Beach Resort featuring fabulous Thai and International cuisine plus world class entertainment headlining the gala prize presentation dinner.
Despite its amateur status the event is Thailand’s richest with US$30,000 in prizes and lucky draws.
