SGA International

The 2020 SGA International (March 1 to 7) – Hua Hin, Thailand

SGA_International_150_logo.jpg

In 2012, Social Golf Australia (SGA) founded our first event held outside Australia: The SGA International. SGA staff attend and host the event each year and in 2020 SGA General Manager Mick David and one other SGA staff member will again personally host this superb event. It is one of the highlights of our annual event schedule and we are looking forward to another great tournament again this year. To see the results from past events, scroll to the bottom of this page for links to results pages from previous years.

In 2020 we are returning to Hua Hin for the first time since 2015 and, as always, the tournament again includes four competition rounds of stableford over seven days and optional practice rounds on the rest days for the golf tragics who want to sample more of the superb golf courses in the area. The package for our players and accompanying guests also includes an official welcome function before the tournament and our presentation dinner with trophies and awards for the best scores throughout the week.

We have put together a superb collection of golf courses for our 2020 event, starting with Majestic Creek Golf Club and the Jack Nicklaus-designed Springfield Royal Golf Club.  Then after the rest day, we head to the Banyan Golf Club and close out our event at the host of the European Tour’s 2015 True Thailand Classic (won by Aussie, Scott Hend) Black Mountain Golf Club.

Day 2 - Monday March 2, 2020

 

First Round - Majestic Creek Golf Club  - 11:00 am

 

Set in the foothills around 20km inland from Hua Hin, Majestic Creek Country Club has been extensively renovated and upgraded and this 27-hole course is now one of the best layouts in Hua Hin.  With meandering creeks weaving between holes and a beautiful backdrop of the mountain range near the Burmese border, this golf course is the perfect start to our tournament.

Day 3 - Tuesday March 3, 2020


Second Round - Banyan Golf Club - 10:50 am

 

Banyan Golf Club is an outstanding golf course, designed by a local architect who made wonderful use of the natural surroundings and the pineapple plantations which surround the course often come into play. There are six tee boxes to cater to all handicaps and the course is dotted with some rather impressive and well located water hazards and bunkers. Play well, and you may well reach the fast and true greens in regulation.



Day 4 - Wednesday March 4, 2020

 

Free Day
 

Our golfers will be treated to a day off, free to explore the realxed, seaside setting that is Hua Hin.  Whether it be the golf tragics heading out for another round of golf, or the foodies heading to the Tamarind Food Market, there is something for everyone in Hua Hin.

Day 6 - Thursday March 5, 2020

 

Third Round - Springfield Royal Country Club - 11:00 am

Springfield Royal Country Club is one of our favourite golf courses in Hua Hin. Designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus, there are plenty of bunkers and water hazards strategically placed to catch a poor tee shot. Having hosted many Asian Tour Q-School events in recent years, our golfers will enjoy their third tournament round before the exciting last day.



Day 7 - Friday March 6, 2020

 

Fourth Round - Black Mountain Golf Club - 11:40 am

 

Black Mountain is an exceptional golf course in great condition which has hosted a number of European Tour and Asian Tour and events.  Interesting and at times challenging layout with breath-taking scenery and a clubhouse that offers exceptional food and first rate service, it has a reputation for being one of the most visually stunning golf courses in Asia. A truly magnificent course and a great way to finish off a fantastic week of golf.
