At the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, golf returned to the Olympic Games for the first time after a 112-year hiatus. Panasonic, which has been supporting the Olympic Games as an Official Worldwide Olympic Partner for more than 25 years, has begun organizing the Panasonic Open once again in 2016 to help contribute to the development of golf as the sport enters a new age.

 

As the concept of this tournament is to make "golf more open" and accessible to all, Panasonic will organize various events for golf lovers, as well as spectators new to golf or who have come as a family such as "The Gallery Hall," the "Farewell Party," and lucky draws.

 

Please come to the Panasonic Open and experience new ways to enjoy golf and witness the passion of the athletes first hand.

Moreover, a lottery will take place where spectators will be able to win Panasonic products and Panasonic Open merchandise according to the number of hole-in-ones and birdies.
