In 2018 Hans Han and the Blue Springs-Evergreen Group took up the option to be the “Naming Rights” sponsor for the VGO2018 and they have exercised the option to extend that sponsorship into 2019.

The Vanuatu Golf Open celebrates 35 years of continuous opens in 2019 and this year the event is attracting huge interest both overseas and locally.

VGO Chairman Bryan Death confirmed that already over 70 entries have been received from international amateur players. Bryan said also that the agreement with the Australian PGA was also signed off and he anticipated up to 40 professionals from Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia and other pacific countries including Fiji would play in the 2019 event.

Bryan thanked Hans and his team for their great support as without such commitment the event could not go ahead as a tier one PGA event.

The event will be played at The Port Vila Golf & Country Club from 27th August till 1st Sept 2019.

More information and entry forms can be access via the VGO Website www.vanuatugolfopen.com or by emailing Bryan Death bryan@tmsvanuatu.com
