TAT Public Relations Director Thanet Petchsuwan said on Tuesday that the TAT had invited more than 41 members of the media from all over the world to attend the event in order to enhance international awareness of Thailand as a world-class golfing destination with fantastic courses and facilities, and also to publicise the readiness of Thailand to host competitive golf games to boost the sport’s presence here.

Meanwhile, TAT also invited travel agents and their buyers to a business meeting and also held a golf tournament for people who were keen to experience the golf courses of Phuket.

Golf creates an interesting market that can be used to increase the sale of other products and services. In 2016, 400,000 people came to Thailand to participate in games of golf, which can generate up to B4.8 million in revenue.

Mr Thanet said, “Thailand excels at delivering a complete golf experience. Not only the diversity of courses and standardised amenities, but also unique local experiences makes Thailand competitive on both a regional and global level.”

He added, “The TGTM 2018 will strengthen the country’s position as the world’s leading golf destination. This will also enhance a new image of Phuket as a rising golf destination as well as the global sports destinations. In fact, Phuket has long catered to extensive range of sporting experiences; such as, surfing, marathon, triathlon, cycling, and so on, along with hosted various domestic and international competitions.”
