Friday 19th of October heralded the fourth annual Women With a Mission Charity Golf Tournament, this year held at the Phoenix Golf Club. WWM teamed with AustCham Thailand to stage this event that grows in popularity every year.
This year 124 players, grouped into teams of four, teed-off on the immaculately prepared course under azure blue skies. The format was the popular “Texas Scramble” of 4-ball best-ball, and it was a strongly fought contest. Golfers included local teams, teams from Bangkok and far afield including visiting golfers from Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

The emphasis was a fun day out for all. The strong sponsor support for WWM meant that there were lots of prizes as well as a free post-match function, meaning every player received great value for their tournament entry fee. The function, held at the Holiday Inn Pattaya, was hosted by AustCham Thailand, and combined both a networking event along with the prize giving.
The teams were categorized by their combined handicaps into three flights, and the podium place-getters were as follows:
1st The Renegades
2nd Natural Ville 2
3rd Farang Hookers
1st Mixed I
