Hua Hin/Cha-am, July 25, 2013: Golfers from Thailand and all around the world are being invited to participate in a golf festival to be held all through August and September 2013 in the popular Thai beach resorts of Hua Hin and Cha-am.

All participating golfers will be eligible for a lucky draw that will see the winner walking away with a special prize of a Honda Brio Amaze car.

Now in its 12th year, the festival is being organised by the local offices of the Tourism Authority of Thailand together with Golf Course Executives Foundation and nine golf courses at a special green fee of 999 baht per person. Each of the courses is offering a variety of services for that fee.

After golfers buy the green fee, they will receive a coupon to fill in their names and contact details which will be entered for the lucky draw prize, as well as a range of other prizes. Players can choose to drive in any participating golf course any day except on one of the competition days.

Golf is one of the four key niche markets being promoted by the TAT as part of its strategic marketing plan for 2014. The Hua Hin/Cha-am Golf Festival 2013 aims to attract Thai and foreign tourists to visit Phetchaburi and Prachuap Khiri Khan, the two provinces in which Hua Hin and Cha-am are located, during the green season.

Located about 200 kilometres south of Bangkok, Hua Hin is the country’s oldest beach resort, having been popularised by Thai royalty in the 1920s. A number of world-class golf courses, hotels and resorts, health and spa facilities have put Hua Hin even more into the international spotlight.

Thailand today has an expansive range of golf tour operators and over 200 top-quality golf courses nationwide. Golfers come from all around the world to play and attend international tournaments. TAT also holds an annual golf travel mart to provide more networking opportunities.

Not only are the courses immaculately designed, but the cost of playing in Thailand is generally much lower than that of many countries.
