THE InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa is thrilled to host two of the world's best golfers, Fiji's own Vijay Singh and three-time major champion Nick Price for the PGA OneAsia Fiji International Tournament.

The duo is among a list of golf stars to battle for the tournament's $1.83million prize purse.

InterContinental Fiji general manager Erik Stuebe said the tournament would promote Fiji as one of the best golf destinations internationally.

"In addition to the immediate multi-million dollar boost to the local economy, the influx of visitors will bring the tournament places in Fiji on the world stage as an exceptional golf destination, which has long-term benefits for Fiji's tourism industry," he said.

"As the gold sponsor of Fiji International, the resort's thrilled to see such a positive response to the event both locally and internationally.

"Our championship golf course will provide a worthy challenge for even the most experienced of golfers and we're looking forward to the tee off next month."

He said the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course was regarded as one of the best golf courses in Fiji and arguably the South Pacific.
