History 1995

History will record that the inaugural staging of the Volvo China Tour and Volvo China Open successfully launched the People's Republic on a new, exciting golfing journey.

That the ambitious venture came to fruition was the result of a vision shared by three men with the common aim of continuing the global march of the Royal and Ancient game - Mel Pyatt of Swedish car giants Volvo, Aylwin Tai from Hong Kong-based golf promotion company Richtone Worldwide and Cui Zhiqiang, former secretary-general of the China Golf Association.

With the Tianshou mountain range providing a spectacular backdrop, Paraguayan Raul Fretes scaled new heights of excellence to write his name into golfing history as the first winner of the Volvo China Open.
