Cobra Gold Golf Tournament

The golf tournament is scheduled for Thursday February 17th at Plutaluang Royal Thai Navy Golf Course. The tournament will be played on 18 holes between the North and West courses. The event is open to all Cobra Gold participants and teams will be grouped as a team of four. The tournament is free for all Cobra Gold exercise participants which includes free green fees, free cart, free golf club rental, free caddy fee and free golf balls and tees. We only ask that you give your caddy an appropriate tip of 200 Thai Baht or more.

Tucked away in Pattaya’s hilly peaks, the Plutaluang Golf Club is one of the oldest and most natural courses in Thailand. This golf course was designed long before the fad for employing professional golfers to design courses became the par. The design by the Royal Thai Navy course utilizes Mother Nature to its best effect. Hills are the name of the game here, leaving scenic features bordering on a huge lake at every turn.

Challenges

Closest To The Pin
A prize will go to the golfer who makes it closest to the hole. The challenge will be held on the 3rd hole on the North Course. It is a par 3 course, so it should be fairly competitive given most players do pretty well at smacking the ball – just watch out for the water in-between! The first hit from the tee box will be each players opportunity to win. The caddy will mark the player that comes closes to the hole and list their name on the marker. The winner will be announced during our prize banquet.

Longest Drive
Be sure to bring your strength and speed for the longest drive competition on the 2nd hold on the West Course. Water and Out-of-Bounds shots will not be counted. After a tee-shot, the longest ball will be marked with a flag by your caddy. If a player out-drives a previous mark, their caddy will then replace the flag to the new location and list the player’s name. At the end of the tournament the flag will be brought to us, and we will announce the winner at the banquet.

Not only will they have the enjoyment of playing overseas on one of Thailand’s most prestigious golf courses, but they will also have an opportunity to win their name on the annual Cobra Gold Golf Tournament Trophy.

Military Raffle
For those who will be playing golf, but not up to par with some of the other players, have no fear. You still have an opportunity to win the Toshiba Mini Netbook Laptop during our raffle.
