On the first day, which saw beautiful weather, the first round started at 12:00 noon and the first day’s game was completed at 5:00pm. A welcome dinner in the Ballroom of Hyatt Regency Hua Hin completed the first day’s event, allowing guests to enjoy a wide selection of international buffet while guests were entertained by the resort’s trio band throughout the evening. The second day began at 8:00am with new group pairings based on the scores of the first day. Fortunately, guests did not have to face the challenges of the weather on the course during this two-day tournament, as the sun was not strong and players were able to enjoy a nice cool breeze from the mountains. Furthermore, during the two-day event, golf enthusiasts had an opportunity to experience a culinary showcase as well as the authentic hospitality of Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok and Hyatt Regency Hua Hin, as both Hyatt hotels hosted Hyatt’s Food & Beverage Hospitality Kiosk to refresh and re-energise the golfers.
After the game on the second day, the prize-giving luncheon ceremony was held at the golf course. Amazingly, the winner of the Hyatt Open 2011 was 15-year-old Oscar Odestal from Sweden. The talented young teenager, who came for a holiday in Hua Hin with his family, received a VIP Golf Holiday at Hyatt Regency Coolum and two rounds of golf at Hyatt Regency Coolum Golf Course.
The first runner up was Mr. Anand Singhsachthep, who received a prize of a full set of Titleist AP2 irons and a tour bag as well as a round of golf at Santiburi Samui Golf Course
for two people. The second runner up was Mr. Amnaj Phankaew, who received a two-night stay in a Grand Suite at Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok and one round of golf at the Thai Country Club for two people. This year, no player received the hole-in-one prize, which was a brand new Toyota Prius.
“This event allowed you to enjoy the charm of Hua Hin as a destination, experience the ultimate relaxation and authentic hospitality at Hyatt Regency Hua Hin, and at the same time be excited and challenged by the golf tournament. Obviously, we received a very positive response from clients for this second annual event as we can see the high demand of participation. Moreover, after the first day game was completed, we started receiving enquiries from clients for next year’s tournament. This helped emphasise Hua Hin as a preferred family and golf destination for travellers who look for a weekend getaway from the city,” said Sammy Carolus, General Manager of Hyatt Regency Hua Hin.
Richard Greaves, General Manager of Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok, said, “Since this year marks Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok 20th anniversary and Hyatt Regency Hua Hin will celebrate its 10th anniversary, the Hyatt Open event is one of a series of activities lined up for both Hyatt hotels to celebrate this auspicious occasion. This is a way to express our sincere appreciation to clients for their continued support to both Hyatt hotels, giving Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok and Hyatt Regency Hua Hin an opportunity to gain our foothold in the hospitality industry in Thailand as well as to build brand loyalty. We are excited about celebrating the 20th anniversary and 10th anniversary of the hotels this year, and we believe that moving forward, both Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok and Hyatt Regency Hua Hin will continue being the preferred brand for Thai and international travellers.”
The schedule of the Hyatt Open 2012 will be finalised early in 2012 to allow golf enthusiasts and families to plan their seaside holiday with challenges on the course again. Once finalised, the dates and information of next year’s event will be available on www.bangkok.grand.hyatt.com and www.huahin.regency.hyatt.com.
