ASIAN GOLF – May 2018

The May edition of ASIAN GOLF is out! And it is full of original content that you won’t find anywhere else!

The cover story is devoted to golf in India. ASIAN GOLF was recently on the giant sub-Continent to witness for itself the state of the glorious game in this ancient land. Although golf had been introduced to India in the early 1800’s, it has languished as a sport for the elite. Now, after nearly two centuries, the game is experiencing a sort of “renaissance” as Indian golf awakens to make its presence felt in the world of golf.

Its arrival on the world stage is manifested through the prestigious Indian Open, a tournament that is steeped in tradition and class. Its venue is the world-class DLF Golf Club in the spanking new Indian city of Gurgaon – a sight to be seen to be believed.

ASIAN GOLF talked to the movers and shakers of golf in India and it reports that there is no turning back for the country. The government, the game’s institutions, corporations and players are hell-bent on developing Indian golf into a game as big as what cricket is in the country. Will the combined push work? Read about it and find out how India is rising!

The May issue is also dedicated to celebrating the achievements of golf’s new heroes – the young stars of the game. The era of Nicklaus and Woods is past and a new era is dawning – the era of young guns who have no fear and who have already taken the game to new heights never before experienced in the game. ASIAN GOLF checks out the new rising gods of golf.

Also in this issue is the launch of the 2018 Asia Pacific Golf Summit (APGS), the most successful summit on the business of golf in the Asia Pacific. Now in its 12th year, APGS will be staged in the pulsating citty of Bangkok in Thailand and it already promises to be the biggest and the best in the series. Plus a whole lot more articles!

APGG - Call For More Shorts And Chicken Legs!
 
Tiger Woods, remember him? Well, the guy now wants professional golfers to be permitted to be able to wear shorts and show some legs. Not a bad idea at all! It may be that big idea to help give golf a boost!
 
Anyway, the one-time golf phenom said, “We play in some of the hottest climates on the planet. We usually travel with the sun, and a lot of our events are played in the summer, and then on top of that when we have the winter months here a lot of the guys go down to South Africa and Australia where it's summer down there.”
 
"It would be nice to wear shorts. Even with my little chicken legs, I still would like to wear shorts,” he added. ""I would love it!"

APGG - China Opens The Flood Gates To Golf Tourism

Happy days are ahead for golf tourism in China. The positive signs of change follow Chinese President Xi Jinping’s decision to further open up the island of Hainan.

Visitors from 59 countries including Australia, Germany, Great Britain, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Spain and the United States can now enter Hainan visa-free for up to 30 days each time, according to new policies aimed at opening up the island known as ‘China’s Hawaii’.

Other measures announced for the province include the introduction of free trade, sports betting and duty free shopping, all of which will provide a significant boost to the golf tourism market in Hainan, say some of the sport’s stakeholders.

Reacting to the new policies, Tenniel Chu, vice chairman of the Mission Hills Group said, “There has been a huge boost in interest from overseas golfers and golf tour operators since the new reforms were announced for Hainan. There are currently 23 international cities outside of mainland China with direct flights into Haikou, many of them bringing golf tourists.

With the new policies, we predict that the number of overseas golfers coming to Hainan will be boosted by a further 60 per cent in the next 12 months alone.”
