Sentosa, Singapore, April 11: The organiser of The Ho Tram Players Championship has announced that its tournament on the Asian Tour will be rescheduled to a new date in 2018 due to upgrading and renovation works at the Ho Tram Strip.
In order to accommodate the flagship tournament on the 2018 Asian Tour calendar, Asian Coast Development, Ltd. (ACDL) is building another 550 rooms across the street from The Bluffs golf course.
When the ongoing project is finished, The Grand Ho Tram Strip will boast two identical 22-story towers and 1,100 rooms, making for a venue easily capable of hosting the Ho Tram Players Championship.
The inaugural Ho Tram Open was held successfully in December 2015, with Spanish star Sergio Garcia winning the title in a dramatic, four-way playoff at the Greg Norman-designed, links-style course. Garcia won his first Major title at the Masters Tournament on Sunday.
Both parties will determine by the middle of this year the new tournament dates for 2018. More information will be released shortly.
