The World Golf Festival, which initiated in St Andrews 2012, has agreed to become a podium sponsor at the Ballantine’s Sanya Golf Team Trophy which takes place at the very exclusive Hainan Rendez-Vous at the Luhuitou Golf Club, one of China’s most exclusive clubs.

The Hainan Rendez-Vous Lifestyle Show has reached the envied reputation of the most glamorous lifestyle show in China, where exhibitors compete at the highest level to promote their luxury lines and brand new products from all parts of the world. The Show starts on 30th March 2013.

Speaking today, Richard Wax, Chairman of the World Golf Festival said, “I am very excited to be connected to one of the most exclusive new golf events in China. Our first golf festival in St Andrews reached half a billion people, breaking all media coverage records for a new event. Over the last year we have signed up 25 ambassadors from countries all over the world and sponsoring the Ballantine’s Sanya Golf Team Trophy at the Hainan Rendez-Vous, fits perfectly with our plans to take the World Golf Festival around the globe. I’ve heard so many great things about Sanya and the Hainan Rendez Vous and I am sure that it will be a superb event for fun and networking in a stunning location.”

Alain Sarfatti who is organising the event and is the Ambassador of the World Golf Festival in Greater China, Singapore and Malaysia said, “The Hainan Rendez-Vous and the Ballantines Golf Team Trophy will create a major buzz and interest for the World Golf Festival. The destination is one of the best places in China, a kind of Hawaii of its own. Playing the challenging Luhuitou course is quite a treat. Hainan and Sanya are ‘must-visit’ destinations for serious travellers and businessmen, as well as for golf enthusiasts looking for a first class experience.”

Delphine Lignieres, CEO and Founder of Hainan Rendez Vous said, “In just 4 years, we became the largest and most glamorous Rendez-Vous in China. We are really excited to partner with Alain Sarfatti – USC-88 and the World Golf Festival for the Ballantine’s Golf Team Trophy. This tournament is something unique and fun for our distinguished guests.”

The golf tournament is at Sanya city on China’s tropical island of Hainan on Monday 1st April with 36 foursome amateur teams in contention for an eye-watering 102 prizes including the Old Tom Morris sculpture, presented by the World Golf Festival.
