The 21st year of the eagerly awaited Pattaya Sports Club Charity Classic Tournament was held on 11th January 2017 at the Khao Kheow Golf Course, B & A Nines. This event takes weeks of planning and preparation and the Golf Chairman, Ron Gale, worked very hard to make this a successful event which, judging by the comments of those playing he succeeded in doing that. The competition was a 2 Person Better Ball Stableford event with prizes on every hole and prizes for the top 6 pairs. In addition to prizes being awarded on every hole, there was a raffle with many prizes which included 1000 baht food & drink vouchers at Lewiinski’s Hotal & Golf Bar, concessional green fees at Khao Kheow Golf Course, complimentary green Fees at Pleasant Valley, complimentary green fees at Phoenix Gold Golf Course, complimentary green fees at Parichat Golf Course, complimentary green fees at Siam Waterside Golf Course, accommodation at Holiday Inn, accommodation at Diana Resort, accommodation at Town & Town Hotel and the major prize of a Cambodia trip to the Angkor Hotel & Golf Resort with 2 night’s stay for 2 people plus 2 rounds of golf each plus many more prizes.
The Presentations were held at the Holiday Inn on the following evening where a tremendous buffet was provided.
