Banyan Tree Group, a leading multi-brand hospitality group, today announces its entrance into The PGA Principal Partner Program.
The three-year partnership builds on the existing relationship between The PGA and Banyan Tree Group, whose globally renowned Laguna Phuket resort in Thailand already boasts a PGA-branded academy and has hosted The PGA’s popular International Members’ Conference on three separate occasions.
A number of exciting opportunities have arisen for PGA Members as part of this new three-year agreement including an exciting one-off Banyan Tree Group pro-am event and hotel, leisure, travel and residential property incentives. Open to PGA Professionals worldwide, the event will provide playing opportunities along with pre- and post-event stays, allowing participants to tailor their own unique travel experience.
PGA Members will also be able to access exclusive offers at select global Banyan Tree Group destinations to enable them to host clients in the most luxurious surroundings. This includes a 30 percent discount when staying at the group’s flagship resort, Banyan Tree Phuket. Huge savings on group packages are also available as a result of the partnership.
Ravi Chandran, Banyan Tree Group Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer at Laguna Resorts & Hotels said, “We are delighted to enhance our existing relationship with the PGA. Becoming a PGA Principal Partner and hosting the Banyan Tree Group Pro-Am Series enables us to mark another keynote golf event whilst extending exclusive partnership benefits and introducing exceptional travel experiences to PGA Members across our Banyan Tree Group.”
Robert Maxfield, Chief Executive of The PGA, added, “We are delighted to welcome the Banyan Tree Group onboard as a PGA Principal Partner. The partnership and associated Pro-Am Series are a fantastic opportunity for PGA Members to play abroad, sample Thai culture and enjoy Banyan Tree’s outstanding customer experience.”
