Through our partnership with Thailand Golf Tours (TGT), Social Golf Australia (SGA) has founded our first event outside Australia: The SGA International. The event was played for the first time in Pattaya, Thailand from March 17 - 24, 2012 and will become SGA's first annual international event. SGA founder Matthew Pitt attends and hosts the event each year and we are looking forward to developing a great tournament that will be the highlight of our annual event schedule.

The 2012 SGA International coincided with the Pattaya Sabai Challenge Week (PSCW) and included four competition rounds of stableford. All players attending the SGA International played in both events. Below we see the field and caddies assembled before the final round at the superb Laem Chabang International Country Club.

It was a great week of golf on four spectacular golf courses with a lot of fun and a few thrills and spills along the way. Doug Hope from Queensland was the leader at th halfway mark and then rolled an ankle between rounds and could not tee up on the last couple of days. Anne Donnelly from WA achieved her goal of winning the elephant hat for the lowest score on day three and then decided someone else should have the honour, so chose more relaxing activities than taking on the Jack Nicklaus-designed Laem Chabang on the final day. After a super week of golf, congratulations go to Craig Roberts from WA who prevailed to win the inaugural SGA International. After a shaky start, he posted three superb rounds in a row to run away with the title. The final results were:

2012 SGA International Golf Schedule

 

Monday March 19, 2012

 

First Round 
 
Siam Country Club - Plantation Course. In March 2008, a new 27-hole golf course was opened with the name Siam Country Club (Plantation Course). This course was designed by a well known Arizona based, Schmidt & Curley Design Inc. The Plantation name was given in the honor of the historic Sugar Cane, Tapioca and Pineapple plantations in the area and each set of 9-holes is named accordingly.

Second Round

 

The Thai Country Club. This is a prestigious members only golf club. The very challenging layout measures 7,157-yards from the professional tees. the course was the venue for the 1997 Asian Honda Classic where Tiger Woods cruised to a comfortable 10-stroke victory after shooting a final round of 68 for a 20 under-par total of 268.

Third Round

 

Siam Country Club - Old Course. The first privately owned course in Thailand was also the first Thai course to ever host an LPGA event: the 2007 Honda LPGA Thailand. The immaculate greens are huge, elevated and contoured, meaning even the best putters will want the expertise of a knowledgeable caddie. The last four holes make up what is widely considered the best closing stretch in Thailand.

Fourth Round

 

Laem Chabang. This course is a picturesque Jack Nicklaus-designed championship course and is renowned as the best layout in Pattaya. The course features 27 holes on 700 acres and three types of terrain characterize each set of 9 holes. The nines are named Mountain, Lake and Valley and each set of holes offers unique shot-making challenges in beautiful golfing scenery.
