2008 News Archive - Holidays - Don't land in the rough, tee off to China
27 09 2007
Holidaymakers with a keen eye for a golfing spectacle may want to tee off and head to Asia this November.
The China Tour is a professional circuit that began in 1995 when the Asian PGA Tour commenced in the continent.
Park Nam-sin won the very first tournament, which sees the continent's talented sportsmen battle on golfing greens to be crowned winner.
Just three years later, the event gained recognition from the PGA Tours International Federation when it became its sixth member.
According to the sport's organisers the occasion comprises 19 tournaments in 11 countries and winning golfers are entitled to a prize fund of $10.7 million (£5.29 million).
Perhaps not an activity to partake in if you don't know your birdies from your eagles, but nevertheless such a disciplined and challenging sport always makes for an entertaining spectacle.
Those visiting Honk Kong in November may also want to at the Synergy 24 Drum Competition for a unique experience, Whatsonwhen notes.
