Golfers Return to Thailand as Hua Hin Prepares to Host Centara World Masters Golf Championship

Centara Hotels & Resorts is gearing up to host the Centara World Masters Golf Championship in Hua Hin this May, as the world’s leading club golfers return to Thailand following a two-year hiatus.

This major tournament will run from 8-14 May 2022, as hundreds of players tee off at three award-winning courses: Banyan Golf Club, Black Mountain Golf Club and Springfield Royal Country Club. Most of the competitors will be accommodated at Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin, the five-star beachfront heritage hotel which dates from the 1920s.

Asia’s biggest tournament for amateur golfers, this six-day festival of sport will offer prizes totalling US$30,000 across a range of age groups and handicap divisions. The majority of players will fly in from countries in Asia Pacific, but entrants from France, Germany, the USA and UK will give the event a truly international flavour.

Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin will stage a spectacular welcome dinner on the opening night, as well as “19th hole” festivities every evening. At the end of this sporting spectacle, the resort will stage a grand gala dinner and prize presentation ceremony.

The return of Centara World Masters Golf Championship marks an important milestone in the recovery of Thailand’s golf tourism industry. The “Land of Smiles” is home to many of Asia’s finest courses and its year-round climate, warm hospitality and excellent accessibility make Thailand an unrivalled destination for golfers. As the country’s leading hotel group with almost 40 hotels and resorts currently operating across the Kingdom, Centara has always been a popular choice for golfers who want to stay and play in paradise.

“We are delighted to announce the return of the Centara World Masters Golf Championship. This will be the 6th year that we’ve hosted this important event and the first edition after the COVID-enforced two-year hiatus, so this is a very exciting and symbolic moment for us, and for Thailand. Golf tourism is hugely important for our company; we have a collection of world-class hotels and resorts in many of the destinations that players crave, such as Thailand, Vietnam, Dubai and more. At Centara, we love to host golfers worldwide” said Markland Blaiklock, Deputy CEO of Centara Hotels & Resorts.
