Team of parents, students and staff spent a Sunday afternoon on the greens, enjoying play at Bangkok Patana’s first Family Golf Day. Student volunteers were on hand to help golfers register and tee off. The format for the competition was a forgiving Texas scramble whereby teams of two-hit off then played from the best ball to complete the hole. Players were also given the opportunity to purchase a “mulligan” the golfing equivalent of a “get out of jail free” card, which allows the owner to replay a poor shot. All funds, of course, going to our nominated charities; Cube Care, CanCure and One4One.
A highlight for players was the opportunity to “Beat the Pro” on the 16th hole. For a small fee, players could challenge Pro Golfer Khun Wichanee Meechai, who is playing her 3rd year on the LPGA Tour, with recent results including three top 10 finishes. Seven players managed to beat the Pro and took away a prize for doing so. After a quick drenching on the final hole, players returned to the club for a buffet dinner and some fun raffle prizes. A huge thank you to our sponsors for supplying such fantastic raffle prizes including coaching packages, weekend golf holidays and other fun prizes.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the event and some have already said they are looking forward to the next one!
