A press conference was held recently at the Pattana Golf Club & Resort chaired by vice president Rujirapun Juangroongruangkit to announce the 2014’s Pattana Golf Challenge. This is the fourth year for the competition, which provides an opportunity for all Thai and foreign amateur golfers living around the Eastern Seaboard to compete in a prestigious tournament.
There will be a total of four qualifying rounds, held on April 29, June 24, August 26 and on October 7 and one final round on October 14.
No official handicap is required to enter as the 36 system score calculations will be used and there are no limitations on the number of golfers competing in each round. Each golfer can play as many qualifying rounds as they choose. A rotation of the 3 courses (Andreas, Brookei and Calypso) will be used in each round making it more fun for repeat contenders.
