2015 Centara World Masters Golf Championship aiming high
The biggest event of its kind in Asia, the tournament quickly earned a reputation as Asia’s best week of amateur golf. 500 competitors from 23 countries were unanimous in their praise of the golf courses, caddies, event organization and social functions. Further enhancements have been made to the 2015 program to ensure it is even more enjoyable.
“At Centara Hotels and Resorts we are very delighted about the immense success of the inaugural event and are excited to welcome even more golfers to Hua Hin in June 2015” said Khun Thirayuth Chirathivat, CEO of Centara Hotels&Resorts.
The tournament is open to male and female golfers aged 35 and over. There are 15 divisions based on age and handicap. Playing with golfers similar in age and standard is one of the event’s great attractions. At the heart of its success is the camaraderie cultivated among participants.
The 2015 Centara World Masters Golf Championship will again see participants play a selection of Hua Hin’s world class golf resorts with all the trappings of a major professional event; details include competitor bibs worn by their caddies, embossed with participant names and flag of origin just like the US Masters at Augusta National.

There are social events each night at the beautiful Centara Grand Beach Resort featuring fabulous Thai and International cuisine plus world class entertainment headlining the gala prize presentation dinner.
