Thailand golf holiday winner

Dan Meredith (30), a Birmingham resident, has won a golf holiday for 2 to Thailand in a competition run by specialist golf tour operator – Solar Golf Ltd. He visited the National Golf Show which was held at the National Exhibition Centre from April 15th to 17th and completed his entry at the Thailand Golf Tours stand. Over 230 entrants tried to predict the winner’s score in the Singha Pattaya Open which took place at Burapha Golf Club from May 5th to 8th 2011. Dan correctly guessed that the competition would be won with a gross score of 268 (20 under) – carded by Thailand’s Prom Meesawat. There were 10 correct entries and Dan’s lucky number was drawn at a ceremony at the Tara Court, Pattaya on Wednesday 11th May.

However, I have decided to take my father Robert Meredith with me.”

Dan has won a dream holiday for 2 golfers including return air fares from London to Bangkok, 6 nights’ accommodation in Pattaya and 3 rounds of golf at Championship courses. “This is a great prize and I would like to say a big thank you to our sponsors”, states Callum Mackie, Managing Director and founder of Solar Golf. “Thai Airways for the flights, Tara Court for the accommodation and the 3 golf courses – Burapha GC, Laem Chabang CC and Siam Plantation GC.
