Golfing for Charity

On 14th December the Banyan Golf Club Hua Hin hosted the 14th Annual Christmas Charity Golf Tournament of the Hua Hin Golf Society. All proceeds from the event will go the Bright Dawn Foundation. Bright Dawn is a registered Thai Charity Foundation established to improve the lives of poor Thai children living in rural villages surrounding Hua Hin, Thailand.

The Foundation provides educational and health care support to primary schools the children attend. The Event included a Texas Scramble Team Tournament as well as putting and chipping competions. Golf was followed by a BBQ dinner, recognising the many sponsors of the Event, prize giving and a charity auction. Over 300,000 THB was raised by this year’s Event. Everyone of the 116 golfers competing was a winner, however the main event was won by the White Sand Beach Hotel; a corporate sponsor.

Consolation Prize Winners – Corporate Sponsors – Cha Am Golf Club: Paul Graff, Roger Glass, David Watson and Bent Svendsen. Words of congratulations from Stuart Daly – Director of Operations Banyan.
