PHUKET: Following an impressive debut by 12-year-old Newport Lapojkit, the second round of the Phuket Amateur Golf Open is set to tee off next Sunday, July 18 at Loch Palm Golf Club in Kathu.
The tournament will be the second in a series of 11 to determine the best amateur golfer in Phuket. The first and second place winners in each tournament will qualify for the 11th and final tournament, the Phuket Amateur Golf Master’s Open 2011.
Young Phuket golfer Newport took the overall lead at the opening tournament last month at Laguna Golf Club, scoring 42 points in the Stableford competition to win Division 1, for players with handicaps from zero through nine.
Trophies are awarded for first place in each category, with prize vouchers for the top three. A prize presentation and buffet will be held at the Yorkshire Hotel in Patong at 7:30pm on the night of the tournament. Prizes are also available for those who hit close to the tee on some of Loch Palm’s challenging par-three holes.
Loch Palm is one of Phuket’s internationally renowned golf courses. The course meanders around Phuket’s largest lake with undulating hills and palm trees lining the fairways and is set against a jungle-covered backdrop.
Places are still available for the July 18 tournament. For further information visit: phuketamateurgolfopen.com
