More than 1,000 golfers will participate in the FLC Golf Championship 2018, scheduled to take place at the FLC Sầm Sơn Golf Links.
The championship will begin on January 1, 2018, in the central province of Thanh Hóa.
Speaking at a press meeting held in Thanh Hóa last week, the organising board said the annual FLC Golf Championship 2018 had been one of Việt Nam’s biggest golf tournaments in terms of the number of golfers and award value.
The three-day tournament this year will not limit the number of winners for the hole-in-one prize, meaning that a golfer can win hole-in-one in different golf holes. The award is for both professional and amateur golfers.
“The award value this year will continue to increase, with a total value of VNĐ100 billion (US$4.4 million), including a cup, a condotel at FLC Sầm Sơn Golf Link, automobiles, a golf membership and vouchers at all of FLC’s resort complexes nationwide,” said Trịnh Văn Quyết, FLC Group’s chairman of the management board.
Quyết said that by developing golf courses and Institute for Golf, FLC expected to contribute to the country’s golf tourism industry to catch up with the common trend across the world.
FLC has four golf courses in Quy Nhơn, Sầm Sơn and Hạ Long provinces. In the time to come, it would build others in Quảng Bình, Nghệ An, Hà Tĩnh and Hải Phòng.
Golfer Trần Phương from HCM City won the hole-in-one award at the 16th hole, with a value of VNĐ7 billion at the FLC Golf Championship 2017.
After six years, the annual FLC Golf Championship has become one of the most prestigious tournaments. FLC Sầm Sơn Golf Links is located in the FLC Sầm Sơn Complex, with a total investment of VNĐ12 trillion on an area of 200ha.
The golf course was chosen for many other important competitions, such as the Faros Golf Tournament, AMD Golf Challenge 2017 and Danko Golf Championship 2017.
Golfers at the tournament will enjoy free accomodation at the complex
