Bangkok, Thailand: Award-winning Thai Country Club is in pristine condition for this week’s Thailand Open.

Panuphol Pittayarat has found the course in tip-top shape as he bids to become the first player to successfully defend his title at the Thailand Open, which is being co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour and the Thailand Golf Association (TGA).

“We are honoured to be hosting the event for the third straight year,” said John Blanch, General Manager of the Thai Country Club, a Golf Course Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“We are glad to welcome back the Asian Tour stars and officials this week. Our staff have been working very hard to ensure our course is in optimum condition so that we can provide a quality test to the players,” he added.

Rungsrid Luxsitanonda, President of Thailand Golf Association, hailed the return of the Thailand Open on the Asian Tour.

“We are delighted to sanction the Thailand Open with the Asian Tour once again this week. Working closely with the Asian Tour for a long time to grow the stature and prestige of the Thailand Open, the association has played a major role in developing the game of golf in Thailand and in the region. We are looking forward to another successful edition of the Thailand Open this week,” said Rungsrid.

Those views were endorsed by Cho Minn Thant, Commissioner and Chief Executive Officer of the Asian Tour, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

Cho said: “I would like to express our gratitude to the Thailand Golf Association and the Thai Country Club for their outstanding commitment and support. Their valuable contributions have been instrumental in strengthening professional golf across Asia. We hope the staging of the Thailand Open will continue to inspire the younger generation of players.”
