On Monday, the 14th of December the second Steve Gilbert Memorial Golf Tournament was held in Udon Thani. As last year, the event went under the tagline of 'wankers welcome'.

 

 

The number of participants increased from last year by 50%, to 66 golfers who appeared at Wing 23 Golf Course from 6:30 am. Starting with delicious coffee, which was sponsored by Take 5 Coffee, they then teed-off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The temperatures rose after a few hours beyond the 30-degree mark and so the athletes were both happy and thirsty after they had completed the 18 holes in about five hours.

 

 

 

   

 

 

The subsequent party and awards ceremony, as well as the entire tournament, had been carefully planned and prepared by Noel and Pedro. There were a lot of prizes, of which the longest tee-shot of the first nine holes was won by Woody (320 yards), and on the second nine by one of the Thai women golfers, Por (270 yards). The tournament was won with a net score of 50.


In addition to prizes for the closest ball to the hole on the par 3s, many other prizes were awarded in a raffle. The party after the tournament lasted until late into the night.


For Gilbert's widow, 12,000 baht was raised, and an additional 5,200 baht will go to the retirement home 'Home for the Aged' in Udon Thani.

The whole event was a great success and the participants of this year's Steve Gilbert's Memorial Golf Tournament will definitely compete again next year, when it says; 'wankers welcome'!
