The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) will relaunch another tournament, which was expanded from the Minister Cup 2021, for all expat golfers in the Kingdom.
The Amazing Thailand Expat Golf Tournament Series will be held at the Blue Canyon Country Club, Phuket on 18 August, 2021. The Tournament aims to promote sports tourism in particular golfing experiences in the Kingdom among expatriate residents. Moreover, the Tournament will be organised with the safety and hygienic measures of the Amazing Thailand Safety and Health Administration (SHA) certification, which is used to assess 10 types of businesses and also includes sports for tourism.
The Minister of Tourism and Sports, H.E.

He also mentioned that the tournaments are being organised in line with the Royal Thai Government’s ‘Stay Play Safe’ policy under a collaboration between the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, Ministry of Public Health, and other tourism-related public and private organisations to build confidence in Thailand’s public health measures against COVID-19, while strengthening the economy with stimulus packages.
