Thailand is poised to strengthen its reputation as the world’s golfing destination during the upcoming Thailand Golf Travel Mart (TGTM) 2018 at Duangjitt Resort and Spa in Patong, Phuket during 23-26 July, 2018.
Once again, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is hosting golf tour operators and buyers from key international markets and presenting them with an outstanding opportunity to meet with suppliers and golf course owners from around the Kingdom.
At the golf trade event this time, the issue of sustainability and environment impact has also been addressed and put into action. All delegates have been encouraged to use a tumbler in order to decrease the use of plastic, glass and bottles.
Thai golf tourism has emerged as a promising segment in Thailand, bringing in a huge revenue to the country. In 2016, a total of around 400,000 serious players came to tee off in Thailand generating income of around 138.5 million USD (4.88 billion Baht). The average spending per person for golf is around 346 USD (12,215 Baht), which is ranked as the second highest of all travelling activities in Thailand.
