PSC Annual Charity Classic
20th Pattaya Sports Club 2016 Charity Classic
@Pattana Golf Club & Resort
The 20th year of the eagerly awaited Pattaya Sports Club Charity Classic Tournament was held on 29th March 2016 at the Pattana Golf Resort. This event takes weeks of planning and preparation and the Golf Chairman, Maurice Roberts, worked very hard to make this a successful event which, judging by the comments of those playing he succeeded in doing that. The competition was a 2 Person Better Ball Stableford event with prizes on every hole and prizes for the top 5 pairs. In addition to prizes being awarded on every hole, there was a raffle with many prizes which included concessional green fees for 4 people at Khao Kheow Golf Course, 4 concessional green Fees at Pattaya Country Club, complimentary green fees at Phoenix Gold Golf Course, complimentary green fees at Pattana Golf Course and the major prize of a Cambodia trip to the Angkor Hotel & Golf Resort with 2 night’s stay for 2 people plus 2 rounds of golf each plus many more prizes.
The Presentations were held at Tavern By The Sea at The Amari on the following evening where a tremendous buffet was provided.
Another great supporter of this event was Chris Balzli of Sinto Shirts who provided 150 shirts free of charge.
