Golf | Asian Tour

Golf, one of the most talked about sport nowadays.

The Golf Asian Tour, the first Brunei Open was held in 2005 and at the end of August 2006, in the prestigious Empire Hotel & Country Club.

The superb golf course was designed by world reknowned Jack Nicklaus and had actually won "The Venue Of The Year Award 2005" by the Asian Tour.

The players can be seen truly enjoying the tournament in Brunei. They have all reason to as the course is very challenging, the view is absolutely magnificient and the first class accommodation was just the cherry on top.

Many top golfers were in the Brunei Open: Danny Chia, Jarrod Lyle, Rick Gibson, Thaworn Wiratchant, and Malaysian's Pro Alwi Kamaruddin, just to name a few, were there.

Terry Pilkadaris won the First Brunei Open in 2005, and in 2006, Chinese Taipei veteran Wang Ter-chang won the 2nd Brunei Open, and in 2007 Brunei Open is scheduled to take place on the 12th to the 15th July, 2007.

With that I'll leave u with these photos which I took during the Asian Tour.
