Golfers to tee off at Phu My Hung tournament

HCM CITY (VNS) — The Phu My Hung Golf Tournament will make its debut on May 10 with the participation of 72 athletes gathering in HCM City.

Golfers will compete in the 18-hole event for a prize pool of up to VND1.5 billion (US$71,500) at the Nam Sai Gon Golf Course, 15 minutes drive from the city centre.

In addition to the Best Gross prize and top three winners, organisers will also hand out awards for technique and hole-in-one swings.

Organisers said the competition had attracted interest from a large contingent of golfers, some of whom had to be rejected due to limited space.

It is expected that the tournament will be expanded in the near future to accommodate demand. — VNS
