As such it is in perfect condition to welcome many of the best golfers from around the world.
Asian Tour executive chairman Kyi Hla Han said: “I am confident the inaugural Thailand Golf Championship will help bring about fresh hope for the people of Thailand and it is wonderful to see the players contributing various items towards the auction.
“With a world-class line-up of stars heading to Amata Spring, we expect to see big crowds at the tournament which will be great as the proceeds from ticket sales will also go towards flood relief.”
The event will be broadcast live over the four days on the Asian Tour’s global television platform and also on Golf Channel-True Visions in Thailand.
