A high level tourism delegation comprising Sanya brand hotels, golf-related operators and led by Sanya Tourism Development Commission attended the 2nd Asia Golf Tourism Convention held in Pattaya, Thailand from April 29 to May 2, 2013.


Michel L. Goget, the General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Sanya on behalf of Sanya City made a detailed introduction to the attendees at the convention on the convenient transport and the comprehensive golf facilities and great opportunities for golf development in Hainan.


However, the initiative to establish Hainan as ‘Asia’s Golf Hub’ has still a long way to go. According to the related person from Sanya golf industry, the tourist arrivals for golf tourism in Hainan have declined annually.


To put the golf industry to move in the right direction, Sanya government will organize a series of promotional activities and strengthen its efforts to expand its overseas market such as Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Korea, Thailand to help the entire golf industry grow on a healthy path.
