Agence France-Presse reports that Indonesia's prestigious Indonesian Open golf tournament is moving to Bali in 2009.
Co-sanctioned by both the Asian and European Tours, the move to Bali is being spiced up with a higher total purse of US$1.25 million, making the tournament Indonesia's richest sporting event.
The Drean Land-New Kuta Golf Resort will host the event, scheduled for February 26 March 1, 2009.
The Asian Tour Chairman, Kyi Hia Han, explained the that the decision to move the event from Jakarta to Bali after four years was based on a desire to "further spread the gospel of golf across Indonesia."
Last year's tournament was won by Chilean Felipe Aguilar, who beat India's Jeev Milkha Singh by a single stroke.
