3rd Annual Family Fun Golf Tournament: A great event for Chiang Mai’s young golfers
The junior tournament was held on 7 October at Golf Avenue San Sai Par 3 golf course in Chiang Mai. With heavy rains forecast for the day of the event, the young participants, ranging from ages 4-12, were greeted with unexpected sunshiny weather.
Playing from the red tees, players and caddies walked the 9-hole course dotted with many challenging water holes, bunkers and newly sanded greens. At the end of the event, hot, tired and happy, all players tallied up their scores and waited excitedly for the results. On the Par 27 course, Division 1 winner (8-12 years) Bua, from Prince Royal College, took home the first place trophy with a tournament record 36. Jessica, a TGGA Team Elite player, came home with a second place win 40 and third-place winner, Nine, was very pleased to take home his first-time trophy with a score of 43.
In their sporty golf attire and wee golf clubs, the Division 2 (ages 4-7) players also enjoyed some fine scores with many players participating in their first-time tournament experience. Budding golfer 7-year old Aksel from Prem International School shot an impressive 39 taking home some shiny “hardware”
The event is specially organized so that families can enjoy some fresh air, fun and quality time together. We want our young players to see that golf is so much more than just a great game, but an opportunity to share an experience, develop character skills such as integrity, honesty and sportsmanship and learn a game they will enjoy for a lifetime.
Our most grateful thanks to Stephen Choong, owner of Golf Avenue, for his generous donation of 5,000 baht’s worth of free golf rounds to the top winners and to Supanniga (Pro Nah) Bhuranabhan of TGGA for organizing and running the event.
