Asian Golf Tourism – The Birth of a ‘New Power-House’

The Asia Pacific Golf Group has launched Asian Golf Tourism – a magazine exclusively dedicated to the promotion of golf tourism in the Asia-Pacific region.

It is sometimes surprising to realise just how much revenue is generated by golf tourism on a global scale. Golf tourism represents the single largest sports-related travel market in the world:

  • Reliable data available points to this segment of the travel market being worth over US $20 billion;
  • Total number of golf tourists travelling the globe to play golf exceeds 50 million;
  • Market intelligence also estimates that golf tourists play their game on over 32,000 courses worldwide.

“With this data, the time has never been right and ripe for the launch of ASIAN GOLF TOURISM. This is a revolutionary publishing venture that will showcase great golf escapades in Asia with the focus falling on the main golf tourism belt which encompasses Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, China and Vietnam,” said Mike Sebastian, publisher of the new magazine.

All of these golfing destinations offer a wide selection of golf courses and unique golfing experiences at very attractive rates. Collectively, the Asian golf experience is a ‘gem waiting to be discovered’ and through the pages of Asian Golf Tourism it is hoped that the world will discover that Asia is truly a wonderful haven for golfers.

“Asia beckons the golf tourist to visit for leisure and business. Asia also is ready for entrepreneurs on the look-out to develop golf resort communities and real estate designed to promote second home ownership and a great life-style,” Sebastian pointed out.
