MENA Tour makes Thailand debut in May

DUBAI — The MENA (Middle East, North Africa) Golf Tour will make its maiden voyage to  the “Land of Smiles,” as Thailand is popularly known for its effusive hospitality, when it hosts two events there next month.

The Mountain Creek Thailand Open — the fifth event on this year’s schedule — will be held from May 10 to 12, followed by the  the Mahasamutr Masters at Banyan Golf Club in Hua Hin on May 17-19 in a vivid reflection of the tour’s growing strength.

With the Tourism Authority of Thailand stepping up its drive to attract more in-bound tourists, the two events are aimed at realising the country’s huge golf tourism potential in addition to promoting Golf Citizen, one of the fastest growing online tee time booking engines which has richly-diverse golf courses on its network.

“A lot of fresh talent coming up through the ranks over the last few years, but the opportunities to play are limited. With MENA Golf Tour travelling to new destinations, it will provide another platform for young professionals to develop and showcase their skills on a global basis,” said Darren Clarke, Patron of the MENA Golf Tour.
