Pro Am golfers ready to drive off in style

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: Players in the 2011 Phuket Property Dot Com Pro Am Invitational golf tourney, to be played at the Laguna Phuket Golf Club on Friday, have a chance to win a Mini Cooper S or a 19-foot day boat for sinking a hole-in-one.

The course has two par 3 holes.

“The inaugural event in 2010 was a resounding success and we are confident our continued sponsorship will provide strong foundations for the event and allow it to develop and grow in the future,” said Peter Bolton, co-founder of Phuket Property Dot Com.

This year, Max-Marine Asia, dealers for Sunseeker boats in Thailand, are sponsoring a 1.2-million baht Sessa 19′ Key Largo day boat for the first eagle-eyed golfer to sink a hole-in-one at hole 11, which is 150 yards from tee to pin.

“We’re very happy to be sponsoring the 2011 Phuket Property Dot Com Pro Am Invitational and supporting the ‘Phuket Has Been Good To Us’ Foundation,” said Managing Director Craig Murphy.

Luck will also favor the brave at hole 16, also 150 yards, where AutoExpress on the bypass road are offering the first player to score a hole-in-one to drive home a Mini Cooper S 1.6 Turbo valued at 2.8mn baht.

“The Phuket Property Dot Com Pro Am Invitational is a great event and one which we are proud to be a part of, and we’re also proud to be supporting the good work of the ‘Phuket Has Been Good To Us’ Foundation,” said General Manager Saksri Kerdphol.

More prizes will be awarded for best team points in the Stableford competition; best player (male and female); and for “nearest to pin” on every hole.

The Phuket Gazette and PGTV are also sponsors of this event.
