Logo15 November, Singapore – The Asian Golf Awards, widely known as “The Oscars for the Asian Pacific Golf Industry”, annually recognize Asia’s finest golf facilities for, amongst other categories; Best Course in the Region, Best Clubhouse and Best Golf Course Maintenance.

At the Awards Gala Dinner, Lotus Valley Golf Resort was presented with the award for Best Value for Money Golf Experience 2014.

Several of Thailand’s elite golf properties were recognized at the awards including Lotus Valley Golf Resort, Thai Country Club, Black Mountain and Banyan Golf Club.

Attending the Gala Dinner Awards Ceremony were over two hundred of the Asian golf industry’s most influential people.  Among them, to accept the award for Best Value for Money Golf Experience were Lotus Valley’s Managing Directors; Khun Raya Tejapaibul and her husband Khun Somkiat Sinsunthon, Khun Woramet and Khun Duankamon Tejapaibul. Also representing Lotus Valley was TMG Academy founder Tony Meechai and Lotus Valley General Manager, Derek Schade.

This prestigious award came as a result of years of dedication by the Lotus Valley owners, who only five years ago renovated the entire property and constructed a stylish new clubhouse which renowned American coach Hank Haney referred to as one of the nicest he’d seen during his visit last year.

“Fine playing conditions have been the foundation of Lotus Valley’s success and the reason Lotus Valley is now being recognized as Thailand’s Best Value for Money Golf Experience” remarked General Manager Derek Schade.

Originally a Gary Player designed course, Lotus Valley underwent its major renovation five years ago under the guidance of TurfPro Golf and Jon Morrow. Upgrades included improved drainage, adding modern grasses, reshaping greens and approach areas in order to make the course more challenging and visually attractive.

Lotus Valley’s popularity has taken off in recent years with the addition of Tony Meechai’s TMG Academy which hosted Hank Haney’s clinics in 2013 and the World Junior Optimist Qualifying events.  Lotus Valley is quickly earning a reputation as a Thai golf experience that meets the best international standards.

Lotus Valley Golf Resort is located about 1 hour and 15 minutes east of downtown Bangkok.  With the finest conditions, facilities and service plus affordable green fees year-round it’s easy to see how Lotus Valley earned the Asian Golf Award for Best Value for Money Experience and further captured international  attention.
