Malaysia to Host Asia Golf Tourism Convention

Tourism Malaysia will host the first ever IAGTO Asia Golf Tourism Convention at the Mines Resort and Golf Club, Kuala Lumpur, on 22nd – 25th April 2012. For three days, 150 golf tour operators from 38 different countries will be brought together with a plethora of golf resorts, courses and hotels to network and start new business relations.

Giles Greenwood, the Golf Tourism Development Director at IAGTO, said: “Malaysia is an ideal golf destination with over 200 courses to choose from in a variety of different landscapes. I was particularly impressed with the high standard of the courses, which is why we chose Malaysia to host our first ever Asia Golf Tourism Convention.”

Malaysia’s increasing popularity with golfers of all nationalities and standards has been brought about the launch of the MGTA (Malaysia Golf Tourism Association) last year to further develop golf tourism, of which the IAGTO Asia Golf Tourism Convention plays an essential part of the strategy.
