The Majestic Creek Country Club Hua Hin has hosted round seven of the Singha Amazing Thailand Caddy Championship 2018” on 7th August with a field of 160 caddies taking to the course.
The Championship format involves eight courses at Nakhon Nayok, Chiang Mai, Songkhla, Bangkok, Prachinburi and Phuket with 12 winners qualifying in each round before the final with 96 players eligible to play in the final at the Siam Country Club in Pattaya on 17th September.
