Phuket golf tourney to take place on Friday

13 Jun 2011

Thirty touring golfers will be heading to Laguna Phuket Golf Club this Friday. The second Phuket Property Dot Com Pro Am Invitational will see competitors attempt to win prizes including a Mini Cooper S Turbo model and raise one million Baht for a local children’s charity.

Other prizes will be given for best team points, nearest to pin and best male and female players. A Sessa Key Largo 19-foot day-boat valued at 1.2 million Baht is on offer to any golfer who manages a hole-in-one on hole 11, while the top-of-the-range Mini can be driven home by the first player who aces hole 16.

Both holes are par three 150yd drives. Phuket’s AutoExpress is offering the three million Baht Mini as a prize. General manager Saksri Kerdphol said his company was proud to be part of such a prestigious event and to support the children’s charity Phuket Has Been Good To Us.

Phuket Property Dot Com co-founder Peter Bolton said that the first golf competition held last November was a great success. He added that he thought continuing sponsorship would allow the event to evolve and blossom over time.

Other tournament sponsors include local magazine The Phuket Gazette and Max-Marine Asia. The latter is the local dealer for Sunseeker boats and provider of the Sessa day boat.
