On August 21st, 2015, golfers from everywhere in Vietnam gathered together at King’s Island golf club to participate Golf & Life’s golf tournament 2015. This year’s tournament which was held after the anniversary party in Ho Chi Minh city in April and the golf Golf & Life’s tournament at The Dunes Golf Club, Da Nang in July, marks the 10th anniversary of the magazine as a “thank you” from the magazine management to golfers and readers for the companionship and support that greatly contributed to the magazine for 10 years.
Unlike previous years, on this year’s tour golfers were divided equally based on handicaps into three divisions: A, B and C. Most of the golfers had been to the course one day before the golf tour to both familiarize themselves with the golf course and explore the unique course.
All participants were very eager to win hole-in-one prizes which include: 145 million dong Vertu phone, 2 Turkish Airlines business class tickets to Europe, 200 million dong Lucky Star diamond ring, advertising packages for Enterprise on LED worth 300 million dongs, a luxury sofa worth 440 million dongs and monarch massage chair worth 136 million dongs.
