The 72-hole Stableford competition is open to male and female golfers over the age of 35 who carry an official handicap. More than $30,000 in prizes and lucky draws will be given away at the gala presentation dinner.

Situated on the west coast of the Gulf of Thailand, Hua Hin was developed in the 1920s by King Prajadhipok (Rama VII), who built a palace named Klai Kang Won (“Far from Worries”). The town is still a favourite holiday spot of Thai royalty.
