Hua Hin International Golf Festival, a delight for the connoisseur

  • i

The Hua Hin International Golf Festival is a true delight for golf enthusiasts, offering a not to be missed opportunity to engage in their favourite sport. Taking place in August and September each year, the special festival is conducted in several courses in the area. These include The Imperial Lake View Hotel & Golf Club, Springfield Village Golf & Spa and the Palm Hills Golf Resort and Country Club amongst others. Many of the golf courses in the locality are considered to be world class.

During the duration of the event many special activities are conducted, including a Ryder Cup style competition versus golfers from the locality, numerous prize draws and heavily discounted charges at the participating golfing venues. Other special features include free of charge golf swing workshops with well known golf professionals, a contest for the longest drive and the opportunity to browse, examine and purchase from an extensive range of exclusively discounted golf equipment.

Perhaps the most attractive feature of the festival is the fact that throughout the duration of the extravaganza enthusiasts may play at the participating venues for vastly reduced green fees. This offer never fails to lure many foreign as well as local golf enthusiasts. These offers are valid throughout the extent of the festival except on certain Sundays on which special tournaments are conducted. Visitors may choose to enter these tournaments for a reasonable fee which usually includes caddie services, dinner and souvenirs. The tournaments offer attractive awards, such as prizes for the longest drives and rewards for a hole-in-one on certain holes.

Since the festivities lure a large number of aficionados to the locality, visitors are advised to book their accommodation in advance.

Hua Hin has established a strong reputation as a resort destination for both local Thais and foreign visitors. Featuring a long beautiful beachfront and numerous other attractions the locality is considered a prime leisure destination. The area is noted for its tasty fresh seafood which may be sampled at many local restaurants.

When selecting Hua Hin hotels an excellent choice would be the Anantara Hua Hin, Thailand. One of the exceptional Hua Hin luxury hotels, this fine accommodation provides elegant rooms and gracious hospitality.
