JAKARTA, INDONESIA (23rd May, 2019): Golftripz’s flagship golf tournament, the Ballantine’s Team-Am Golf Challenge (BTAGC) is heading to Jakarta, Indonesia for its 10th edition, from 1st - 5th Oct, 2019. The BTAGC is an event created by Golftripz for amateur golfers looking for an international golf experience, where they can compete in both individual and team formats. The event has had the support of Ballantine’s for 8 years in a row now.
“The Ballantine’s Team-Am Golf Challenge will be in its landmark 10th edition this year,” said Madhav Misra, Director, Golftripz. “This is testimony to the success that this event has enjoyed amongst leisure golfers over the years. And we thought no better way than to hold this momentous edition at the best destination of the previous editions - Jakarta, where we had a record 223 golfers in the 5th edition in 2015! And as per the feedback, it was the one that was enjoyed most.”
Jakarta is rapidly establishing its presence amongst the top golf destinations in Asia. Added to the golf infrastructure, the city is popular for its cultural mix, shopping malls and high energy party spots.
The BTAGC 10 edition includes play at 3 golf courses in Jakarta - the Royale Jakarta Golf Club, Damai Indah Golf – Pantai Indah Kapuk Course (PIK) and the Pondok Indah Golf Club. For stay, golfers have the option of choosing between the 4 Star Holiday Inn Suites Gajah Mada and the 5 Star Fairmont Jakarta. The package also includes on-course refreshments, light lunch after rounds, a goodies kit, a welcome dinner, a gala dinner with prize distribution, airport transfers and golf course transfers in individual team vans.
“The abundance of quality golf courses will allow playing a different set of golf courses this time, barring Royale Jakarta. Royale Jakarta is a must in any visit to Jakarta, which golfers never seem to tire of, said Ajit Mohandas, Director, Golftripz. “The other two – the exclusive Pondok Indah and Pantai Indah Kapuk are also regular Asian Tour venues, absolutely first class. After all that hard work, there is no better place for play than Jakarta. Golfers who have traveled to Jakarta will swear it has the best nightlife in Asia. The private van for your team can take you straight to it from the golf course.”
Event packages are priced at USD 1100 for twin-occupancy in the 4 Star Holiday Inn and at USD 1310 for twin-occupancy at the 5 Star Fairmont. Extension packages to other destinations in Indonesia like Bogor and Bali are available as also packages for accompanying non-golfers.
