The inaugural Asia Pacific Inter-Club Golf Tournament was held in Singapore in conjunction with the 2015 Asia Pacific Golf Summit. The 2016 edition of this tournament will be held at the award-winning Black Mountain Golf Club.

“The primary objective of this tournament is to provide a platform for club management personnel to network and enjoy themselves playing a round of golf – there is a need to promote more business networking amongst those who operate and manage golf clubs in the region,” explained Mike Sebastian, chief executive officer of the Asia Pacific Golf Group which is organising and promoting this tournament. Commenting on the inter-club tournament, Harald Elisson, general manager of Black Mountain said, “We are delighted to host this tournament and I can assure you that what we have planned will be a real treat for the club teams – while we expect the mood to be competitive, we want everyone to enjoy Black Mountain and the hospitality that we will extend to all of our peers from the region.” The 2016 Asia Pacific Inter-Club Tournament will be held on October 29th and registration will be on a first come first served basis. There will be provisions for 72 two-man teams and participation in this tournament will come as an automatic entitlement for those who sign up to attend the 2016 Asia Pacific Golf Summit. The winning team will raise and keep the challenge trophy. Last year’s winning team came from the Xili Golf and Country Club in China. Besides the tournament, Black Mountain Golf Club will be hosting a special welcome reception to mark the event and the staging of the 2016 Asia Pacific Golf Summit. Another award-winning course that will welcome delegates to APGS 2016 is Banyan Golf Club. Banyan will be delighted to host delegates for either a pre-Summit or postSummit round of golf. This can be either on October 28th or October 31st. “We would be happy to play host to APGS delegates on either day and we are confident that everyone will have a truly enjoyable round of golf at Banyan,” said Stacey Walton, general manager of the Banyan Golf Club. Delegates who want to take Banyan Golf Club on its offer should advise Alice Ho by e-mail at The closing date to book a round at Banyan will be September 30th.
