The championship sees teams from 14 countries competing for the Nomura Cup 2011 which is the region’s foremost golfing tournament.

The competition marks the first time Fiji will be the host for such a major tournament and the selection also represents the first time a country from the South Pacific islands has been chosen to host the event.

Another first for the tournament will be the fact that the matches will be played over two courses and this is a result of the increase in the number of member countries that are now part of the APGC. Countries set to participate include Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, India, Taiwan, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand and Thailand amongst others.

New Zealand has already announced who will lead their team during the tournament with Ryan Fox and Mathew Perry spearheading the national side accompanied by Vaughan McCall and Sam An.

Spectators using Nadi hotels can see the matches at the nearby Denarau and Natadola golf courses and these are set to be played from 16th to 19th August 2011.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at commented: "This is a major international tournament with each country’s senior players involved and this will draw many golfing fans. As the event draws closer being able to book a hotel room won’t be easy so attendees are being advised to plan ahead."
