Banyan Golf Club has announced the “Banyan Privilege Club Golf Classic” as a golf tournament and an Open Day complete with wellness sessions provided by partner Chiva-Som, a golf clinic by popular PGA pro John Wither, and a host of social events and entertaining activities.
Hosted on Sunday 29th November 2020, the inaugural “Banyan Privilege Club Open Day and Golf Classic” will be a mixed ladies’ and men’s tournament played over 18 holes in a Stableford format, with three categories for different handicaps – scratch to nine, ten to 18, and 19 to 28-plus. Prizes will be awarded for each category, along with separate honours for landing nearest the pin and the longest drive.
Banyan Golf Club is also welcoming non-golfers and beginners to play for free. John Wither, a PGA professional who won Asian Golf’s “Best Professional Golf Coach in Asia Pacific” award, will host the Open Day and Golf Clinic, featuring introductory lessons, a mini putting competition, and the chance to play three holes on the main course.
Open to juniors and adults alike, this provides the ideal opportunity to swing a club for the first time or to improve golf skills, potentially leading to a new lifelong passion or pastime.
The professional therapists from Chiva-Som, the international health resort in Hua Hin, will also be on hand to prepare the players with stretching sessions or to soothe any aching muscles with a massage. After the competition or the golf clinic, participants will indulge with spa treatments, a BBQ dinner, and entertainment
Banyan Group Chief Executive, Tjeert Kwant says “Our inaugural Golf Classic and Open Day will allow golfers and non-golfers to meet new people and make lasting friendships. Whether you’re a seasoned player with a low handicap, a first-timer looking for a new active hobby, or a non-golfer who just wants to enjoy a great night out, this unique event lets everyone tee-off in style and socialise with like-minded people. We look forward to welcoming old friends and new faces on 29th November.”
