Golfasian Sweeps the Board at World Golf Awards

POSTED ON November 5, 2018 @ 12:58 pm

Asia’s largest golf tour operator, Golfasian, has once again swept the board at the World Golf Awards, scooping a quartet of honors at this year’s event.

The Thailand-based firm, a market leader in golf tourism in Asia since its inception in 1997, has been a star performer at previous installments of the WGA.

Last year, it took first prize in three categories at the prestigious event, held annually at the La Manga Club in southern Spain. The company went one better at this edition of the gala ceremony in Andalucía walking off with four winners’ gongs.

Confirming its status as the region’s most prestigious name in golf tourism, the firm took top honors in the category for Asia’s Best Golf Tour Operator 2018.

In addition, it was named the Best Inbound Tour Operator 2018 for Thailand and Vietnam, the fifth consecutive time it has earned those two titles.

A notable debut was also achieved at this round of the event, with the operator picking up the award for Indonesia’s Best Inbound Golf Tour Operator 2018: the first occasion it has triumphed in that country category.

Personalized customer service allied to deep respect for client feedback, a pioneering approach to multi-destination and multi-country services in Asia and extensive insider knowledge of golf travel in Asia are three key factors in Golfasian’s remarkable success. The company has also earned kudos for its record of overseeing memorable and fun tournaments in the region.

“It’s no simple matter to guarantee a rounded and memorable travel experience for customers,” said Pascal Orczech, Golfasian Director of Business Development, who was in Spain to attend the awards. “These awards, in addition to the number of referrals we get from our growing pool of repeat clients, prove that we are getting it right.”

While golf tourism in most established markets has seen a slowdown, Asia has powered ahead, with fantastic new courses designed by some of the leading names in the game opening in destinations like Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia. With its expert insight on the best golf experiences the region has to offer as well as a deep passion for the game itself, Golfasian has established itself as the go-to for golfers organizing a dream vacation in the region.

“It is a huge honor for us to be recognized like this so consistently at these awards,” said Orczech. “The entire team at Golfasian is extremely proud to be considered among the leading golf travel providers in the world. This recognition pushes us to do even better in the future.”
