Phuket Oilfield Classic golf tourney returns for charity

PHUKET: The 7th annual Arnco Phuket Oilfield Classic golf tournament will return on April 9-12, with players lining up to tee off at the Red Mountain and Loch Palm golf courses over two days.

The competition will begin with the traditional Texas Scramble at Red Mountain on April 10 with an 18-hole shotgun start at 12:30pm.

The next day, players will tee off for the Stableford Pairs Competition at Loch Palm with an 18-hole shotgun start at 12:30pm.

The gala dinner and prize-giving ceremony will be held at the Novotel Vintage Park in Patong.

Hundreds of golfers turn out each year for the tourney, which traces back to an informal golfing tour to Phuket by oil and gas workers in 2008 (story here).

The annual event has raised millions of baht for charity over the years.

“The events raise awareness for much needed local children’s charities and over the last three years we have donated close to 1.2 million baht directly in cash from the very generous participants in these events,” event organizers told the Phuket Gazette.
