Phuket Sports: Khao Lak charity golf returns to Navy golf course



PHUKET: Following last year’s successful event, the second Khao Lak Charity Golf Tournament is teed up for another great outing on November 19 at the Tab Lamu Navy Golf Course in Phang Nga.

Organizers are expecting to draw 100 entries this year, far in excess of participating numbers at the 2010 competition – a testament to the growing popularity of the this sporting day out.

Charity manager for the event, Sam Pering, is looking forward to another successful day out.

“Last year, the Khao Lak Community Appeal and Foundation for Education were delighted with the turnout and the amount raised. It was a truly fun event that ran smoothly and we’re looking forward to the 2011 tournament,” Sam told the Phuket Gazette.

Monies raised will drive ongoing projects developed through the KLCA and the FED.

Last year, the event bagged 420,000 baht which facilitated the purchase of a water pump for Yaowawit School and uniforms for 26 of the students. The funds also helped to continue sponsorship of two teachers at Watkommaneeyakhet School and another at Bang Maruan School.

The Village Coconut Island in Phuket has been booked in as title sponsors once again with a number of other businesses chipping in as hole sponsors.

A two-ball combined Stableford will be the format for the tournament with a shotgun start scheduled for 1pm. Entrance fee is 6,000 baht per team of two, which includes green fee, caddies and dinner for two people.

The prize giving dinner with auction will be held at Ayara Villas on Bang Niang Beach at 7:30pm.

This is an opportunity for all standards of players and anyone who enjoys the game to meet and compete for a worthy cause.
