For golf and tavel lovers! HIS Golf Cup 2018 Tour Report – Bangpakong Riverside Country Club –

This is the report of the HIS Golf Cup 2018 Tour held on Saturday, January 27 under the slogan of “enjoy golf with all tourists and those who live in Thailand all together”.

January is the best season for Thailand. Tropical flowers welcome guests coming all the way from extremely cold Japan.

The Bangpakong Riverside Country Club which has an excellent condition and a good access with 60 minutes from Bangkok city is the venue for the event, and is carefully selected by the HIS Bangkok Branch.

The course is popular for long hitters with wide fairways.

Golfers usually don’t take a break after playing 9 holes in 18-hole play for round in Thailand and the afternoon shotgun is the prevailing style for tournament. It is pleased that golfer can play the round in the afternoon without regard to oversleep the next day after enjoying the nightlife in Bangkok.

Even golfers who are unfamiliar with overseas golf would be comfortable since HIS staffs take care of them in a polite way at the reception desk.

Wow! The four popular female pros joined the tournament. From the left, Haruka Kudo, Maria Shinohara, Asami Kikuchi, and Kurumi Doi.

The participants can experience their brilliant plays at hand as they join the groups of amateurs for few holes. Great conversation in a relaxed atmosphere.

Japanese female pro Mariya Shinohara and Haruka Kudo started golf in Thailand.

Maria Shinohara who passed the JLPGA PRO-TEST in 2015 won the LPGA rookie tournament and had got attention. She is expected to have good season in 2018 after ranked 6th in qualifing tournament.​ ​

Mr. Nishioka, the GM for the HIS Bangkok Branch, loves golf so much!

Mr. Itsuhiro Kangyo, the director of Sink Corporation, won the tournament. This was the first overseas golf for him and he said “I’ll be absolutely back next year!”

When playing golf in foreign country, I often feel that I realize the culture of that country in a short time.

It is a well-known fact that golf which you can know the personality of your partners is used as a communication tool, such as building relationships in business.

You would feel a tremendous sympathy with your partner by sharing the moments when you are happy with a nice shot, or when you are sorry as you find the water in long 18 holes. And even though the language and the culture are different, golf is worth more than anything since it deepen the mutual understanding easily by overcoming such barriers.

However, it is natural that the overseas golf would be felt out of your element and its hurdle is high. So, we recommend for those who feel that to join in the tour which travel expert plans and includes tournament.
