Golf is, without a doubt, the most popular sporting activity among expats living in Pattaya and regular visitors to our city.
Local newspapers give over several pages each week to announce results, show photos of competition winners and also announce tournaments.
There are several prestigious tournaments each year that regularly see more people wishing to play than can actually play, and now there is a new tournament that will raise much needed funds for one of Pattaya’s largest charitable organizations, the Father Ray Foundation.
The inaugural Father Ray Charity Golf for Good Tournament 2014 will take place on the afternoon of Saturday 18th October at the newly opened Siam Country Club Pattaya Waterside course. There will be a shotgun start at 12:00.
The cost of entering at team of four, in what is hoped will become an annual tournament, is 40,000 baht, ten thousand baht per player.
This price will cover the cost of playing in the scramble tournament, an invitation to the awards ceremony dinner and a souvenir gift bag, and a percentage of the price will be given as a donation to the Education Fund at the Father Ray Foundation.
As an extra bonus, the first player to achieve a hole-in-one will win a brand new Nissan Almera.
