Casino resort Venetian Macao, owned by Sands China, has signed as the title sponsor of the Macau Open golf tournament for one year.

The deal marks the first time the gaming operator has backed the Asian Tour event. The Macau Open will continue to offer prize money of $750,000. The tournament will be played from October 11-14 at the Macau Golf and Country Club (Macau Open).

The Asian Tour hopes the Venetian’s deal will allow for expansion of the event on all fronts — from more prize money to bigger name players. The goal is to turn the city into an entertainment hub where more than just gambling is offered.{jcomments on}
