The last thirty years have witnessed the construction of world class golf courses throughout the Asian continent. Many of these courses have now become legendary for a variety of reasons.
For the 2012 Summit, the organisers have pre-selected three golf clubs to be featured on the programme. The three clubs are:
Each of these clubs has a distinct story to tell and a valuable experience to share with their peers in Asia. The success story of BlackMountainwill be narrated by its general manager, Harald Elisson. Harald’s course has played host to the Black Mountain Masters, one of the region’s most successful professional tournaments and the 2010 Royal Trophy clash between Team Europe and Team Asia.
From Indonesia, we check out the highly successful and award-winning Royale Jakarta Golf Club, home to the prestigious Indonesian Masters. Come and meet the affable and personable golf-loving George Chandra, the club’s chief operating officer. George will walk theSummit through what makes his club tick.
Finally, from the beautiful resort belt of northern Thailand, there is the exquisite Chiangmai Highlands Golf and Spa Resort. Its success story will be told by WoranonSamakoses, the managing director of this sprawling facility.
“This is definitely a first for theSummitand forAsia- to have top flight club executives share their management practices and philosophies with their industry peers. We hope that this serves as a fore-runner to similar presentations from other Asian golf clubs in future,” saidMike Sebastian, chief executive officer of the Asia Pacific Golf Group, the owner and producer of theSummit.
The 2012 Asia Pacific Golf Summit is aimed at golf club owners, operators, general managers and business executives involved in growing the club experience. The dates are 11 – 13 December, 2012. The Sultanate of Brunei will roll out the red carpet to welcome guests to a truly peaceful abode.
