MBK Resort Public Company Limited organised the 1st Tin Mine Open 2010 tournament hosted at Loch Palm Golf Club on the 21st of May & at Red Mountain Golf Club on the 22nd of May.
The theme and purpose of the event was to start to host an annual tournament each year as a well known event; to give back to their members and golfers in Phuket and create a good friendly relationship between golfers & the clubs; and also provide a portion of profits towards the nearby Kathu School.
All Red Mountain & Loch Palm members (of all types, sexes and abilities!), VIPs like Blair Speers, CEO of Hoteltravel.com plus the general golfing public were encouraged to play. There were one day handicaps prepared for day 2 pairings; and prizes including trophies and sponsors packages for various categories of winners & runners up, even Hole In One prizes, Longest Drives prizes, Nearest Pin prizes and Lucky Draws but the winners’ details didn’t seem to matter as everyone had a good time…
