11 June 2024

Hua Hin, Thailand, June 9, 2024 — The 9th Centara World Masters Golf Championship is set to captivate the hearts of golf enthusiasts from around the globe. This year, 350 golfers from 17 countries will gather in Hua Hin, Thailand, for an extraordinary week of competition, camaraderie, and celebration. The tournament, running from Sunday through Friday, June 9th to 15th, will be hosted at three of Hua Hin’s most prestigious courses: Pineapple Valley Golf Club, Springfield Royal Country Club, and Palm Hills Golf Resort and Country Club.

The Centara World Masters, recognized as Asia’s largest and most esteemed amateur golf tournament, has continually attracted a diverse and passionate group of golfers since its inception. This year’s event is supported by a distinguished lineup of sponsors, including Centara Hotels & Resorts, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Coca-Cola, Titleist, Lazudi, Bangkok Hospital, and Carabao Beer.

Participants in this year’s tournament hail from Australia, Germany, India, Ireland, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Marshall Islands, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Portugal, Singapore, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States, showcasing the event’s international appeal and the universal love of golf.

In a significant and heartfelt development, the tournament has chosen Mercy House, a sanctuary for needy, disabled, and abandoned children in Hua Hin, as its official charity for 2024. This partnership highlights the event’s commitment to giving back to the local community and supporting those in need.

Mark Siegel, Managing Director of Golfasian, reflects on the tournament’s impact: “The Centara World Masters continues to enhance Thailand’s standing as a premier golfing destination. This tournament not only brings together golfers from around the world but also fosters a spirit of unity and goodwill. We are thrilled to support Mercy House this year, reflecting our commitment to making a positive difference in the community.”

Peter McCarthy, CEO of GoGolfing, adds, “The Centara World Masters is more than just a golf tournament; it’s a celebration of friendship and shared passion. Each year, we see returning golfers who bring new friends and spread the word about the incredible experience here in Hua Hin. This event has become a highlight in the amateur golfing calendar, and we are proud of the joy and connections it creates.”

This year’s tournament promises an unforgettable experience with meticulously organized competitions and a welcoming atmosphere. The event features three age divisions for men (A, B, and C grades) and two for women (A and B grades), ensuring fair and exciting competition for all skill levels. With prizes valued at over US$30,000, participants have much to look forward to.

As the tournament continues to grow in prestige and popularity, it paves the way for similar events in other stunning locations, such as Pattaya and Phuket in Thailand, and Danang in Vietnam. These events, also organized by Golfasian and GoGolfing, follow the same successful formula of multi-age, multi-division competitions for both men and women.

Hua Hin, a city renowned for its historical significance and picturesque beauty, provides the perfect backdrop for the Centara World Masters. The city first gained fame in the 1920s with the establishment of a train line connecting Bangkok to Malaysia and Singapore, leading to the creation of Thailand’s first golf course, Royal Hua Hin. This heritage is celebrated each year as golfers from around the world come together to enjoy the sport in one of Thailand’s most iconic destinations.

The Centara Grand Hotel, a beacon of heritage and elegance, continues to serve as the headline sponsor and the central hub for tournament activities. With its stunning seaside location, it offers participants luxurious accommodation and a venue for the event’s social functions.
