The three-day tournament was held by BMW Group and THACO from November 16 to 18 at Tan Son Nhat golf course in Go Vap District.
Since 2019, BMW Vietnam has hosted this tournament to select the winners to represent the country in one of the world's largest amateur golf tournaments, the BMW Golf Cup International World Finals.
This annual tournament is a platform to cultivate new and current relationships among a very exclusive group of BMW owners in Vietnam.
This year, nearly 150 semi-professional golfers who are BMW customers competed in the tournament.
Three of them won tickets to the 30th BMW International Golf Tournament including Nguyen Dang Duy Nhat and Pham Van Hoang Phat who were at the top of two male group stages, and Ho Thi Lanh who was at the top of the women's group stage.
Christopher Wehner, managing director of BMW Asia, said the BMW International Golf Tournament had been growing over the past three decades.
“We are delighted that Vietnam officially participated in the 30th tournament, giving customers the opportunity to compete with many golfers from around the country,” he added.
Vo Van Minh, deputy general director of BMW distribution in Vietnam, said: “Although this is the first time, the BMW International Golf Tournament - Vietnam Finals has brought excitement and joy to golfers attending. We look forward to bringing new and memorable experiences to BMW customers through this tournament.”
Many tour operators have proposed that golf service providers offer various golfing packages at lower prices than currently available to develop the golfing tourism sector in the country and attract more tourists.
A golf tournament called “Vietnam and friends” was held in Moscow, Russia, on June 22, as part of activities marking the Vietnam Year in Russia and the Russia Year in Vietnam 2019.
