The Hong Kong Open has named Japanese golf equipment manufacturer Honma as their title sponsor.
The newly named ‘Honma Hong Kong Open’, which has a purse of $2 million (£1.52 million), takes place in Fanling between November 22nd and 25th.
Both organisations are due to celebrate their respective 60th year anniversaries at the tournament.
Martin Hadaway, Captain of Hong Kong Golf Club, commented: “The Hong Kong Golf Club is pleased to welcome Honma to the Hong Kong Open. 2018 promises to be a very special year in the history of the tournament as the Hong Kong Golf Club celebrates 60 years of bringing the best golfers in the world to Hong Kong to compete in this prestigious tournament.
We share Honma’s passion for the game and look forward to celebrating this important milestone with them. Over the last two years, the tournament has made significant steps to make the Hong Kong Open accessible to everyone in Hong Kong with free access on Thursday and Friday continuing in 2018.”
Yoshihiro Nishi, President of the Hong Kong Golf Association, added: “We welcome Honma to the golf community in Hong Kong. Their sponsorship of the 2018 Honma Hong Kong Open is testament to their reputation as one of the leading brands in the golf industry and we look forward to celebrating the 60th anniversary of both organisations in November this year.”
