Koreans to participate in RP's first golf junket

More than a hundred South Korean golfers will arrive tonight and stay at the Subic Bay Freeport for three days as part of the Philippines’ first-ever golf junket.

The special program intends to bring an estimated 180 golfers twice weekly this year, said Benjamin John Defensor, President of Hanafil Golf and Tours which sponsors the junket.

The initiative is being headed by Hanatour, South Korea’s largest tourism company, and its Philippine unit, Hanafil.

The arriving 174-member delegation, which is scheduled to visit other tourism facilities, will be flown in by Jeju Airlines.

“We want to fully utilize the capabilities of Subic Bay Freeport's location by using the Subic Bay International Airport (SBIA) to become the entry point of international golfers and tourists," he said.

Besides citing the many “recreational activities in Subic," Defensor said that the newly-opened Subic-Clark road will make it easy for foreign golfers to “visit other areas in central Luzon and even Metro Manila."

Hanatour is currently listed in the London Stock Exchange as well as the Korean Stock Exchange. - John Bayarong, GMANews.TV
