Baan Dee Thee Din Dee 2 win mini golf tourney

10,000 baht awarded for hole in one

Baan Dee Thee Din Dee 2 won a recent mini golf competition held at Inter Minigolf, held to celebrate the first ever hole in one at the difficult 8th hole.

The competition winners and runners-up received free tickets for more mini golf rounds, but the true winner, and the reason behind the competition, was Chanikarn Poomyong, who earlier achieved a hole in one and earned 10,000 baht for her feat.

Chanikarn Poomyong receives 10,000 baht for the first ‘Hole in One’ at the 8th hole from Andre Savare.

In all, 10 teams entered the competition, with each player hopeful of scoring another 10,000 baht cheque too, as Swiss managing director Andre Savare and his wife Uthaivan, who have put their hearts into building their dream course on the way to San Kamphaeng, said the hole in one competition will be held daily on the 8th hole.

Competing teams came from Radio Thailand (first runner-up at the end of the day), VR Group, Fokomo Makazine team (second runner-up), Baan Dee Thee Din Dee 1, Baan Dee Thee Din Dee 2 (the champions), SP Publishing, Chiangmai Mail, Now Magazine, and one more team made up from visitors.

Team winners were awarded free tickets for more mini golf rounds, whilst individual winners took home cash prizes and trophies.

Good advice from all those watching was freely available!

As a ‘draw card’, 10,000 baht is hard to beat, and the smile on winner Chanikarn Poomyong was a winner in itself.
