The 1st annual Hoser Memorial Golf Tournament was held on May 3rd at the Plutaluang Navy Golf Course. The round was played under the Stableford scoring system using a unique handicap system. All players started off with a 0 handicap and they then received 1 stroke for each “beverage” consumed on the course.
The overall winner was Phin Stewart scoring 26 points on a 0 “beverage” handicap. Second place was won by “Scandi” Patrick scoring 23 points on an amazing 14 “beverage” handicap.

The awards and buffet was held at The Haven with each golfer being treated to the world famous Hoser Shake as they entered. As the night wore on, the stories and antics of past Hoser Goofy Golf Tournaments held annually in Khon Kaen were remembered.
Thanks to all the golfers and supporters, the Plutaluang Navy Golf Course and The Haven for making this tournament possible.
Additional thanks to John G for the Canadian giveaways, Tahitian Queen for the second place winner’s prize, Matt, Malcolm, Wayne and Art Field for the trophy and Stephen Beard and The Haven for providing a home for the Hoser Memorial Golf Tournament trophy.
