Jakarta, Indonesia: The Asian Development Tour (ADT) will return to one of its most popular destinations with confirmation that four events in Indonesia having been included on the schedule.

Joining the Indonesia Pro-Am Presented by Combiphar & Nomura on the calendar are the BNI Ciputra Golfpreneur Tournament, the OB Golf Invitational and The 2nd Indo Masters Golf Invitational presented by TNE.

“This is another important announcement for the Asian Development Tour, the Asian Tour’s incredibly important feeder circuit, that continues to flourish and confirm its essential position across our platforms,” said Cho Minn Thant, Commissioner & CEO, Asian Tour.

The Indonesia Pro-Am Presented by Combiphar & Nomura is a new and innovative event benefitting from the support of a duo of strong, existing tournament partners.

To be played at Gunung Geulis Country Club from August 16-18 the event will feature an individual tournament and a Pro-Am. Total prize money will be US$125,000, while there is a pot of US$25,000 for the Pro-Am. The venue’s West and East Courses will be utilised.

The US$125,000 BNI Ciputra Golfpreneur Tournament – won last year by Thai Suteepat Prateeptienchai, the 2022 ADT Order of Merit (OOM) winner following a hat-trick of victories – will return to Damai Indah Golf, BSD Course, from August 23-26. This year will mark the eighth edition of the tournament.

In 2019, Tom Kim Joo-hyung, the Korean now ranked 22nd on the Official World Golf Ranking, and a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, claimed the Ciputra event.

The US$70,000 OB Golf Invitational, first played in 2018, will be hosted by Sentul Highlands Golf Club, a new venue for the event, from October 6-8.

Rising Indonesian star Naraajie E. Ramadhanputra triumphed in the event last year during an outstanding start to his professional career which also saw him win the inaugural PIF Saudi Open and finish third on the final ADT OOM to secure, along with Suteepat, full playing privileges on this year’s Asian Tour – a reward bestowed on the top-10 finishers on the Merit list.

The 2nd Indo Masters Golf Invitational presented by TNE completes the four events and will be hosted by Imperial Klub Golf, from October 11-13. The purse will be US$70,000. Australian Harrison Gilbert lifted the trophy in 2022.

Like the Indonesia Pro-Am and OB Golf Invitational, this event is promoted by OB Golf, also the organiser of the Indonesian Masters, past of the Asian Tour and The International Series.

Asian Tour CEO Cho said: “OB Golf are a long standing and wonderfully supportive partner, and we also thank Ciputra, the Professional Golf Tour of Indonesia, and the respective sponsors and venues for their much-welcomed involvement.

“The addition of a Pro-Am style tournament is also an exciting development that will add another level of interest in the Tour. Further schedule updates will be announced in due course.”

The next event on the ADT is the inaugural ADT – All Thailand Partnership Trophy, which will be staged at Phoenix Gold Golf and Country Club, Mountain/Ocean Course from July 6-9.
