First ever Footgolf Open
Updated: May 29, 2018
What Santa brought this holiday is nothing short of a surprise as Sawang Resort organised our first ever Footgolf Open! On one fine day at Khao Yoi, Petchaburi, 31 players of all ages from across Thailand came to contest for who will be the first footgolf champion. The game is simple; strike as few shots as possible into the hole.
The tournament was run over two rounds, each consisting of 18 footgolf holes/ par 72.
It was not all easy for the contestants as the course provides enough challenge with high angle slopes and water hazards to cross the ball across.
After much fun, sweat, and suspense the worthy winners were crowned. Sawang Footgolf Champion is Khun Arnon (Ake) who won by just 2 strokes. Traveled from Bangkok Khun Ake is a part-time football player and now a footgolf fan.
Interviewing our champion about his day, Khun Ake explained, "It is like playing golf, you got to plan your shots. I learned the hard way with my ball falling into the water hazard on the 4th hole. From there I picked up my game and never looked back. I recommend this sport and want this tournament to continue over the years."
Happy contestants from all ages at the Footgolf Open 2017.
