BGA 2018 Organizing Committee’s Chief and Head of Indonesia Golf’s Association Batam Branch, Suyono, said that the current record holder for the most number of participants in a single golf game is held by Wonderful Bogor Golf Tournament counting 1,647 participating golfers. The challenge, therefore, is to beat that number, so that BGA 2018 must attract at least 2,000 golfers from throughout Indonesia and the world.

Suyono added that another reason for staging BGA 2018 is to promote Batam as a popular Golf Destination complete with its splendid international courses. And, ultimately the event will certainly also contribute to the target of international tourists to Batam and to Indonesia as a whole. “BGA 2018 will for sure open up multiple opportunities for direct investments in Batam and neighboring areas in the Riau Islands Province” added Suyono.

Separately, Acting Deputy Marketing I of the Ministry of Tourism, Ni Wayan Giri Adnyani expressed her high appreciation for the staging of the event as well as for efforts of  Batam’s golf stakeholders to develop the golf sport, thereby making golf sports a very alluring attraction for Batam and the Riau Islands.  Adding, that,  indeed, golf tournaments are regularly held here almost every month, which unfailingly attract enthusiasts, also from neighboring countries like Singapore and Malaysia. For this reason, Batam could well be dubbed a Paradise for Golfers since golf games in Indonesia cost less than in other countries.

“Batam is very promising for tourism and investments. The island is only 30 minutes from Singapore and an hour from Malaysia by regular ferry. We will definitely support this great ‘locomotive’ to further turn the economic wheel along these border regencies” assured Giri Adyani.
