2017 was the World Corporate Golf Challenge Thailand’s Inaugural year; we had over 75 corporate teams participate in the event. The event culminated with 18 teams battling it out at the Thailand National final at Banyan Golf Club in Huahin. The winners would have the honour of representing Thailand at the world final in Cascais Portugal.
With a huge storm blowing through Hua Hin the night before the event, conditions at Banyan were extremely difficult with a strong breeze and rain showers throughout the day.
Team TFL (Dietmar Bandat and John Siena) came out victorious with a very respectable score of 68 points, booking their ticket to Portugal for the WCGC World Final.
Fore Management to say a special thank you to our main, sponsor Thai Airways International, who will be flying the winning team business class to the world final. Fore would also like to thank Kingdom property, Southpoint, Mahasamutra, Federbrau, Angkor Golf Resort, Leadbetter Golf Academy Bangkok, Bahgolf and FenixXcell, for their support throughout the event. Events of this stature cannot happen without such a high level of sponsorship.
We look forward to welcoming all participants back later in the year for their quest to reach the World Corporate Golf Challenge, World Final 2018.
