IAGTO News Broadcast
Dear Alan,
This will be our last weekly News Broadcast for the year, so everyone here at IAGTO would like to wish you all the very best for the New Year. All the indications are that 2014 will be a good year for the golf tourism industry and we will do everything we can to support you. We will be having our IAGTO Xmas Party in the local pub this afternoon so please don't send us any difficult questions after 2pm :) Unfortunately Peter will not be joining us as he is still travelling. He is at the spectacular cliff top resort of Royal Isabela in Puerto Rico right now (if you have top end clients looking for a luxury retreat with their own incredible golf course - when it gets a ranking it will be one of the best and most challenging in the Americas, check it out on the IAGTO website). By Wednesday he will have visited every course on the island and will launch the IAGTO Puerto Rico Chapter. He is then moving on to Mexico and will be visiting the courses of Los Cabos after the holidays, so anything you need, please email Peter. Well, that's it from us for another year, so all the best to our friends and colleagues in 97 countries around the world!

THAILAND: Centara World Masters Golf Championship
Hua Hin in Thailand, recently voted the #1 Golf Destination in Asia at the IAGTO awards in Spain is set to host Asia's biggest 'week of golf' - the Centara World Masters Golf Championship from 15-21 June 2014. Registered tour operators are invited to sell event packages and earn up to 15% commission. Bring 15+ and receive an FOC package or a complimentary tour host. Download Tour Operator information here.
World class golf resorts with their ever smiling and well trained caddies, a beach resort setting with old-world charm and modern luxuries, cuisine that indulges the senses, great value shopping and markets, and sea breezes making it more comfortable than humid Asian destinations, makes Hua Hin a natural winner.
The Centara World Masters Open to male and female golfers aged 35+ competition is played in age and handicap divisions. Around 600 golfers from around the world will participate in the week-long Centara World Masters event. More than 100 golfers have signed up in the first 2 weeks. Registrations from Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Philippines, India, South Africa and Canada confirms the event's international appeal.
The Centara World Masters gives every-day golfers the opportunity to play in a world class tournament with all of the trappings of a major professional tournament. The four round tournament will also feature spectacular welcome and presentation dinners with top class entertainment and Thailand's biggest 19th Hole party venue each night. Starting at just US$1,140 the all inclusive 6 night / 4 round event package with loads of extras represents exceptional value.
In addition to Centara Hotels & Resorts, international brands including Coke, TaylorMade, Chang, Thai Airways and a host of local sponsors are backing the event. The tournament will boast more than US$70,000 in prizes.
