This is the first time that Vietnam representative has been selected to be on the list.

The list is conducted and released annually by Golf Inc. Magazine. On top spot is Dana Garmany, CEO of American company Troon Golf. Garmany was in the second place, behind Eric Affeldt, chairman and CEO of ClubCorp last year.

Luu Duc Quang is in the 20th place, higher than Ken and Tenniel Chu brothers of Mission Hills Group in Hong Kong. According to Golf Inc., he could become even more influential if he succeeds in opening 20 golf courses in Vietnam within five years.

Biscom Golf Club Management JSC, under FLC Group, is one of the leading companies in resort, golf courses and real estate sector. It has opened the first real estate complex including golf courses and resorts, FLC Sam Son, earlier this year. It also opened FLC Quy Nhon complex in March and made the record for fastest period of construction in golf history, taking just five months.

The construction of FLC Ha Long complex has been started and another project of 10 golf courses in the northern central region is being planned.

Golf Inc., that has offices in Asia, Europe and the Americas, selected the nominees after analysing their influence in management, their education and training, contribution in sustainable development and other factors.

In previous years, people on top of the lists were leaders of top associations and organisations such as R&A, USPGA and USGA. However this year, the top positions are populated by investors or owners of big golf management companies.

Nguyen Van Hoa, general secretary of Vietnam Golf Association, was among the top 15 powerful people in Asian golf industry in 2013.
