Here are a few updates on the 2018 Santiburi Members and Friends COMMUNITY CUP tournament, to be held at Santiburi Golf Club on Monday, March 26, 2018, starting at 8:32 AM.

Here is a link to the original announcement – please click here.

In the below update, I list our generous sponsors; I provide notice of some changes due to the number of sponsors and type of sponsorships; I list the various competitions and the prizes associated with each, and I provide a list of each registered competitor with their assigned group.  Please scroll down to the bottom to see the list of registered competitors.

If you do not see your name in the group listing below, and you want to play in the tournament, I DO NOT HAVE YOUR REGISTRATION, so please send me an e-mail (not a comment on the blog, a real e-mail from you to the following e-mail address) at with your name, handicap, source of your handicap (SMAF, Chiang Rai Golfers, USGA, etc.) and any preference of playing partners (if any).  We will do our best to accommodate your request — no guarantees – your understanding is deeply appreciated.  Please register ASAP!  We can accommodate you but I need to hear from you NOW.

If you DO see your name, but have some deep objection or question about your grouping or playing partners, please also send me an e-mail at  Please do not use the blog comments for this type of communication.  I would like to accommodate every request to the extent possible so we can have a fun golf tournament that everyone enjoys.  Again, no guarantees I can accommodate every request.  If we can keep this to a minimum it would be very helpful!

    • Caddy Fee B300 (payable to the pro-shop on the day of the tournament)

  2. The members of Chiang Rai Golfers have prepared a group of raffle prizes, and will conduct a raffle similar to the raffles they conduct at their own tournaments.  They will be donating the prizes and raffle proceeds to support the cost of the tournament.  Thank you Chiang Rai Golfers!  We will still have a random card draw for those who haven’t yet won a scoring or hole prize, and all remaining prizes will go into the raffle.
