Marketing Taiwan with a new title for the tournament
The Swinging Skirts ladies golf tournament, well into its 9th year, has been chosen by the Sports Administration, Ministry of Education, to be a “Taiwan Branded Sports Event”. The tournament will market Taiwan by changing its title. Johnson Wang, Chairman of the Swinging Skirts Golf Foundation firmly believes: “This is our good chance to market Taiwan; we will let the world know that Taiwan is an island that loves the sport of golf”. Wang also set a goal of 50,000 attendance for the final round this year, which will undoubtedly set a new Asian record for ladies golf events.
The first-ever “volunteers from amateur golf teams to be allowed to adopt-a-hole for the tournament” system; local golf-lovers can be directly involved in the success of the event
With a reputation for huge success in past Swinging Skirts tournaments, Chairman Wang praised his team for organizing an event worthy of international standards. “This year, with the goals of innovation and development, we will recruit volunteers from amateur golf teams to be responsible for the maintenance of each hole for the tournament, which will be a first in Taiwan. The participants can earn a front row seat to watch the top players play; their team flags can also be seen flying on the tees, spreading the seeds of golf to all corners of the island,” says Wang.
The biggest on-course prize draws and close encounters with top players
The organizer will build the “most attractive sports event in Taiwan” by upscaling the on-course prize draws. “This year we are organizing a world class tournament and we have also prepared an assortment of prizes for the attendees, in the hope that more young people and families would come join us at the golf course, making golf a national sport in Taiwan,” says Wang.
Together with various government administrations and business community, we can build a world class sports event
With nine successful tournaments in a row, this event has built itself a reputation for Taiwan in the international golf world. Support from all parts of the island has become a huge force for success. The organizer would like to thank the Sports Administration of the Ministry of Education, for leading the effort, as well as the New Taipei City government, the Taipei City government, the Taoyuan City government, the Pingtung County government, and the friends from our business community: CTBC Bank, Eva Air, ChungHwa Telecom, and Taiwan Beer just to name a few of the many corporations involved.
