(2012 – 2016)

An experienced and well-known veteran in ASEAN Golf development, AC Wong was the founder member of the ASEAN Golf Tour which was launched in Jakarta in 2007.

Aimed at giving greater playing opportunities to the flourishing state of men’s professional golfers from the 10 member countries of ASEAN, AC Wong believes that “many talented professionals in Southeast Asia, whether they are up and coming golfers or more seasoned players, do not have enough chances to play competitive golf. “ The Youth Golf Programme offers these juniors competitive golf through the Interschool League competition.

AC Wong’s fine work with golf is seen in Singapore’s home grown professional golfer Mardan Marmat. Mr Wong brought Mardan up from the ranks of a junior caddy at Jurong Country Club to an International Star, who ranked 8th in the Asian Tour Order of Merit in 2010. Mardan is also the first player from Singapore to win a co-sanctioned tournament with Europe and the first from Singapore to qualify and play in the British Open in 1997.

AC Wong has plans to gel and work junior golf development with professionals like Mardan.
