Saturday the 3rd October saw enthusiastic golfers and guests gathering once again at the Royal Samui Golf and Country Club to join this year’s festivities. Arrangements were made for 14 buggies to support our members but alas only 13 were available on the day leaving two stalwart golfers to walk their way around. Well done to them!
The first prize for the overall winner donated by NIKKI BEACH of a Villa for two nights, inclusive of breakfast and was won by island visitor Mr Strob. Nearest the Pin was held over two holes and the winners were Ken Quatermass and Goran Spolen whom both received “Dinner for two Vouchers” kindly provided by Poppies Sami. This year our new “Putting Competition” was won by Paul Rambo who was awarded Brunch for two at Nikki Beach.
This year once more Nigel and his wife and staff worked tirelessly to provide, what was, without doubt, THE most wonderful B.B.Q. everyone present commented on how delicious and plentiful it was.
This year’s Raffle was a collection of amazing prizes. There were in fact so many generous donations and our thanks go to the following – Anantara Bophut, Silavadee Resort, Noori India, Island Hoppers, Zazen Resort, Poppies Samui, Samui Palm Beach Resort, Kimalaya, Austrian Bar, The Expat Shop, The Cake Fairy, Mick Grover, David Robertson, The Royal Golf and Country Club and a special thanks to Alex Lester of Samui Golf School for his help in scoring and advising. My apologies to anyone I may have missed!
After lunch everyone was entertained by local Irish musicians “For Folk’s Sake” who were exuberant in their performance which as their lead guitarist Conor O’Leary (of Silavadee Resort and Spa fame) said “It gets better the more you drink – It did !! and many thanks guys, you were great.
And what an amazing day it turned out to be, not only was the weather perfect but turnout was a record with over 55 players and guests who between them raised a record THB 60.018 on behalf of the Special Needs School and many asked if we could hold the event twice a year in the future. (Rain Check)
Our sincere thanks to all management and staff at the RSGCC for making the day possible.
