|Missions Hills Golf Iron Man Golfathon|
Mission Hills Golf Club (which has the world’s largest collection of golf courses with 12 layouts) has organized the Iron Man of golf since 2004. In 2009 the 9th edition of this golf challenge will be held from May 1 through August 31, 2009. The tournament is widely regarded as one of Asia’s most popular and grueling open challenges in golf. Since its inauguration, the Mission Hills Golfathon has become an annual tradition at the world-famous resort with thousands of avid golfers from around the world descending on the club to test their mettle – physically and mentally.
As has been the case in the past, the 2009 Mission Hills Golfathon will see contestants tackle a total of 180 holes across 10 of the club’s 12 acclaimed courses. Those who participate will cover some 70,000 yards played out over courses designed by legends Nick Faldo, Vijay Singh, David Duval, Jack Nicklaus, Jose Maria Olazabal, Annika Sorenstam, David Leadbetter, Ernie Els, Jumbo Ozaki and Greg Norman.
Tenniel Chu, Executive Director, Mission Hills Golf Club, said: “The Mission Hills Golfathon has become one of the annual highlights on the golfing calendar at Mission Hills. We know that it’s a challenge that a growing number of our members and guests relish and look forward to every year.”
One of the many appeals of the Mission Hills Golfathon is that it is open to players of all ages and abilities. Great Mission Hills Golfathon packages are now available. Not only do these include the chance to play on Mission Hills’ famous courses, but also to receive expert advice from the club’s three world-class golf academies, relax and rejuvenate at the resort’s three spas, and share an unforgettable experience with family, friends and fellow golfers.
