The first Chervo Open golf tournament will tee off on April 19 at Hanoi's Sky Lake Resort & Golf Club.

It is expected to attract more than 140 male and female players.

The Chervo Open will be the biggest amateur event held in the country, and the winners will receive huge prizes, said Pham Viet Thang, head of the organising board.

Sky Lake, which is one of Asia's premium destinations, is considered the most challenging course in Vietnam.-VNA
