The atmosphere will be fun yet competitive, with teams battling for bragging rights as the best hospitality golfers in the region.

Being the only event of its kind, it is the ideal networking opportunity for local hoteliers, restaurateurs, landlords, club owners and others involved in the hospitality industry to come together in a relaxed environment.

Event organiser Mark Cameron of Asean Events said, “Last year’s event was a huge success and we attracted a field of 80+ very competitive hospitality leaders. The rivalry between hoteliers was incredible to watch, with endless amounts of friendly on-course banter!

“These professionals are always competing for business, so why not a fun game of golf, networking with like-minded professionals. As an end product of the event experience, we also raise funds for local children’s charities.”

The Charity being supported is the Laguna Children’s First Fund.

Host sponsor Laguna Golf Phuket will once again provide the perfect venue to stage the hospitality golf event.

The unique “Gourmet Golf” concept event will see Laguna Phuket hotel establishments such as Banyan Tree, Angsana, Cassia, Dusit Thani and Outrigger provide on-course food and drinks for golfers.

In addition, other leading entertainment venues from around Phuket will be involved, including new editions like Tile It Whisky Hole, Luna Walk International Cigar Hole, Captain Hook’s Smokehouse and Two Chefs.

Registered teams this year include Accor Group of Hotels, Outrigger Resorts, Tai Pan, Irish Times, and a team all the way from Oman and The Phuket News team.

Organisers already have all 18 holes sponsored with some refreshments and food and a very special hole where the Banyan Tree Spa will give golfers a refreshing neck massage.

On the par 3 holes there will be a “Beat-The-Pro” event, where a PGA Professional from Laguna Golf Academy will challenge each golfer to beat him.
