The eagerly awaited annual Phuket Hospitality Challenge sponsored by Plantations International the Title Sponsor of the event, took place at Laguna Golf Phuket on Thursday 22nd October 2020. This Charity Golf event saw Hospitality and Service Industry professionals from Phuket and surrounding areas come together at the award-winning Laguna Golf Phuket golf course.
Over 104 golfers participated to bring an atmosphere of fun, yet competitiveness, with teams battling for bragging rights as the best hospitality golfers in the region. This was the biggest turnout in the event’s 5-year history and made for a very enjoyable and memorable day. The event could not have taken place without our title sponsor Plantations International. A big Thank you to Drinks & Co and Bevchain who supplied all the beverages throughout the welcome drinks, pre golf and gala dinner. There were also 12 fantastic hole sponsored events by Angsana, Angsana Villas, Hole in One Bar Kathu, Whisgars, Outrigger, Banyan Tree, Bayan Tree Spa, Drinks and Co, Plantations International, Cassia, Lady Pie and Kenny Rogers – all of whom laid of some amazing food and refreshments for all the golfers.

The organizer, Mark Cameron of Asean Events, said “It was amazing to see so many people come together and support the event in these trying times, especially for so many affected in the Service and Hospitality Industry. It was a perfect way for everyone to get back into a fun networking event and was just what was needed after everyone being out of action for so long As an end product of the event experience, we also raised 209,000 baht during the on course and dinner activities, which is an exceptional amount from all the golfers and were much needed funds for local children’s charity – Children’s First Fund otherwise known as CFF. Many supporters of the event that donated prizes for the charity raffle also need to be thanked for their much-needed support and kindness”
