Bendigo golfer Andrew Martin will tee up on one of south-east Asia's most prestigious courses.
Martin will play on the Asian Tour's Thailand Open.
The annual tournament is held at one of the country's most prominent courses, the Thai Country Club, which is known to be integral to growing golf within the region.
"The club is probably one of the best courses we play on the Asian Tour and it's always nice to play in some warmer weather," Martin said.
Martin finished T38 in the competition in 2018, but aims to improve this year come round one on Thursday.
"Made the cut last year, but it wasn't anything too special," Martin said.
"There are a couple of new tees this year which makes it a little different, so I will see how I go come round one."
The Thailand Open is the country's annual golf tournament and was first held in 1965.
The Thai Country Club's general manager John Blanch said the course would test even the best of players.
"We are glad to welcome back the Asian Tour stars and officials this week," Blanch said to the Asian Tour.
"Our staff have also been working very hard to ensure our course is in optimum condition so that we can provide a quality test to the players."
Martin will tee up alongside Burmese player Zaw Moe and Thailand's Witchayanon Chothirunrungrueng for round one on Thursday.
Depending on his results in Thailand and then Malaysia later in the month, it will dictate how soon Martin returns to Australia for the summer of golf.
Martin's most recent tournament was back home in Australia at the Victoria PGA Championship at RACV Cape Schanck.
"Cape Schanck is one of the courses in Victoria that really suits the way I play," Martin said.
"It's a course which is all about ball position, which is my style. I played okay, didn't really play out of my skin kind of thing, but it was good to finish T7."
