Thailand has been awarded the title of 'Golf Destination of the Year, Asia and Australasia, 2009' by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators(IAGTO).

The IAGTO awards, sponsored in association with Virgin Atlantic, are the official awards of the golf tourism industry and are voted for by over 1,300 members in 77 countries.

On receiving the awards Santi Chudintra, director of the Americas Market Division at the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) had this to say, “These awards are welcome, of course, but they aren’t news to anyone who works in the golf travel industry or, for that matter, anyone who has experienced a golf holiday in Thailand,”

“This will definitely help us to promote Thailand for golf and encourage golfers to come and play there. We believe it will help to bring more golfers.” Chudintra went on to say.

Last year Thailand also retained the coveted Golfer Choice Award, ‘Choice Vacation Destination’ which it first won in 2008 for its 260 superb golf courses.
“What’s clear to us is the effect of a superior product combined with affordability, important strategic partnerships and powerful marketing initiatives like ‘Golf in a Kingdom’. This award is not only for the country but also for the golf companies and individuals who have helped make this happen.” Chudintra was keen to point out.

Phuket has a number of exceptional golf courses including The Blue Canyon Golf and Country Club which has twice hosted the Johnny Walker Asian Classic and Laguna Golf course which is a favorite of Nick Faldo.  The Loch Palm is popular with locals as are Phuket Country Club and Mission Hills Links Course, located on the east coast of the island.

Phuket Ocean Villas have a range of properties for sale located on these superb courses, please contact us for more information.
