Open main menu

The Philippine Open was one of the world's longest running men's golf tournaments. First held in 1913, it is also Asia's oldest golf tournament and Asia's oldest national golf open. It was last played in 2018. The most distinguished golfer who has won the tournament is five times British Open champion Peter Thomson of Australia.

The event has been held in a variety of different golf courses around the Philippines and was an official money event on the Asian Tour from 1996 through 2015. In March 2006 the National Golf Association of the Philippines granted all marketing rights for the tournament from 2006 to 2010 to the Asian Tour, which announced an aspiration to increase the prize fund from the 2006 level of US$200,000 to $1 million. [1] In 2014, the prize fund was $300,000.
