The 3rd Hanoi Golf Club Championship - Fastee Cup 2019 will take place at Long Bien Golf Course on September 27 and 28, sponsored by foreign enterprises such as the Daikin Group, the Amway Co. Vietnam, and the Vietnam - France Hospital, as well as local corporations and brands.

The Fastee Cup 2019 is being organized by the Hanoi Golf Association with sponsorship from the Vietnam Golf Association, and features the largest ever number of golfers, at up to 408. The annual championship is to develop the game and promote exchanges between local and international golf clubs.

The tournament has made great progress compared to 2018. After qualifying rounds from 45 registered golf clubs, 34 golf clubs in Hanoi with 408 official golfers and 136 reserve golfers have been selected for the final rounds and will compete for the trophy.

It is held in a team format, with the score of golf clubs being a combined score of 12 members. This is a unique feature of the 3rd Hanoi Golf Club Championship - Fastee Cup compared to other golf tournaments, which are often competed on an individual basis.

Each club features 16 members, including 12 official golfers and four reserve golfers. The tournament is based on the “Stroke Play” format with net scores. Each club is appointed 12 golfers from four groups to compete over two days: Group A (Handicap 0-9), Group B (Handicap 10-15), Group C (Handicap 16-20), and Group D (Handicap 21-26).

Each golfer is allowed to take part in one match only. Club scores are calculated based on the total net scores of the 12 member golfers.

Compared to last year’s tournament, the competition rules of the Fastee Cup 2019 have some important changes. Handicaps have been officially applied under the Vhandicap system as of September 1 (with qualifying Handicaps starting from August 1). Along with this, net points are calculated based on official Handicap and cut (-2) and (+10).

Mr. Le Hung Nam, General Secretary of the Hanoi Golf Association and Director of the Fastee Cup 2019, expects that “the 3rd Hanoi Golf Club Championship - Fastee Cup 2019 will be an inspiration, spreading the spirit of solidarity among the golfers in Hanoi in particular and golfers in Vietnam in general.”

There will be one first prize, one second prize, one third prize, and one “fair-play” prize, with prizes being a set of golf clubs for all members of the winning club. There will also be unlimited “Hole-in-One” prizes, with winners presented with a 100 sq m villa valued at VND2.5 billion ($108,000) in the new urban area of Lotus Garden in Hanoi, by the Cenhomes Property Co. 

The Fastee Golf booking app is a prestigious sponsor of the 3rd Hanoi Golf Club Championship - Fastee Cup 2019. The Diamond sponsors are the Daikin Group, Amway Vietnam Co., and golf fashion brand PING & Le Coq Sportif. The Gold sponsors are The Zei Apartments, the Habeco JSC, Vietjet Air, the Vinaconex Group, the Tan Khoa Co., the BNA Association, the Nhat Nam Co., the Homie Co., Office Interior by Hexa Group, Viet Phap Hospital, Pullman Hanoi Hotel, the Cenhomes Co., the Mopo Co., the HLT Co., and Long Bien Golf Course.
