The tournament to support children in need will be hosted by Hoiana – a premier resort complex in Vietnam based in the central province of Quang Nam. The event will take place this April 16 and is expected to welcome 120 amateur golfers and raise funds amounting to $10,000 for disadvantaged children.

The event, themed Hoiana Open Cup 2022 – Swing for Children, is scheduled to be held on April 16 at Hoiana Shores Golf Club, a premier 18-hole championship golf course in Vietnam. This is the first tournament hosted by the investor South Hoi An Development Co., Ltd., which is expected to be held annually.
Hoiana chose the theme Swing for Children as the profits of the tournament will be donated to disadvantaged children through the Children of Vietnam Fund (COVF).

Along with donations from sponsors and benevolent golfers, the tournament hopes to accomplish its goal of raising $10,000.
Through COVF, the donation will go directly to 102 disadvantaged children and families in the form of support in education and healthcare.
“For us, the first Hoiana Open Cup is a very meaningful event,” said Peter Witt, senior vice president at Hoiana.
“The tournament not only creates a world-class playground for golf lovers but also an opportunity for us to make a minor contribution to the community and society. I hope the Hoiana Open Cup will be a great success so that it can serve as a solid bedrock for the successive tournaments.”
Despite being a charitable activity, the first Hoiana Open Cup is not less alluring as it is played under the handicap method (Handicap System 36), featuring three groups for men and one for women with a total prize value reaching nearly $6,000. The golfers in all groups who win hole-in-one will receive a 24k gold-plated golf ball.
Owning 18 holes, 71 pars, and 7004 yards in length, located at the border between the sand dunes and the pristine sea with stunning views overlooking Cham Island, Hoiana Shores Golf Club aims to offer golfers unforgettable experiences.
