Regional Women Golf Champs to Pit Their Skills at the Her World Golf Challenge Asian Series Singapore 2009

Singapore, 23 June 2009 - SPH Magazines Pte Ltd’s leading women’s magazine, Her World, will hold its annual Her World Golf Challenge Asian Series on June 26, 2009. Now into its fourth year, the Her World Golf Challenge is one of the most popular all-women golfing events in Singapore.

This year’s event, to be held at Sentosa Golf Club’s Tanjong Course, features two competitions. The first is the Her World Singapore Golf Challenge, where more than 200 readers will compete. The other is the Her World Golf Challenge Asian Series finals, where 10 regional finalists, winners from the Her World Golf Challenge Asian Series in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore (2008), will pit their skills against one another.

Elisabeth Gwee, Her World's editor, says: "The Her World Golf Challenge has become a highly-anticipated event for women golfers here as well as those in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam, where Her World has regional editions. It's been growing in popularity every year as our readers know that in addition to enjoying a day out on the course, fashion, beauty and lifestyle treats await them at the event. As I've been told more than once by readers and trade partners, the Her World Golf Challenge is not only one of the most anticipated women's golf events, it is one of the most colourful and stylish too.”

Fabulous prizes await the top players this year. They include Her World Golf Challenge winner trophies, Tag Heuer Monaco Ladies diamond watches, Toshiba NB200 Mini notebooks, Mizuno Ladies golf sets, Silkair tickets to exotic Asian destinations, plus exciting prizes from Puma, Kerastase, Keraskin Esthetics and Perrier.

Novelty prizes will be also given out, such as The PUMA Best Dressed prize, the Longest Drive prize sponsored by Tiger Beer, and the Nearest To Pin prize sponsored by Keraskin Esthetics and Kerastase. The lucky golfer who scores a Hole-In-One will receive one year’s supply of skincare from Kéraskin Esthetics and one year’s supply of haircare from Kérastase.

But at the event, everyone’s a winner. All participants will take home a Her World Golfer's kit worth over $300.

Something special that the golfers can look forward to are pampering beauty treats during and after the game. At the halfway house, Kérastase has specially developed a neck and shoulder massage using cooling globes to ease tense muscles and refresh the skin. A hydrating leave-in hair conditioner that also offers UV protection will complete the indulging experience. After the game, golfers will receive a relaxing neck, shoulder, and arm massage using Kéraskin Esthetics products to ease muscle soreness and soften the skin.
