Changes to the 2017 Pattaya Amateur Golf Series

Category: Pattaya Amateur Golf Series

Firstly Dave and I would like to thank all of you for making the 2016 series the best ever, we hope you all will join us again this year. Special thanks also goes out to Jeff Wylie, Steve Shepherd, Mark Rogers and Da for their help in making each day run as smoothly as it can

As many of you will already know we have a new sponsor for the 2017 series. The New Nordic Group are now our major sponsor and hope you will support them where you can.

Now into the nitty gritty………….we have a few changes to the series that we would like to explain

Handicaps

All players are welcome to play in a PAGS event but only those with a USGA based handicap will be allowed to win any of the flight prizes. Handicaps must be issued by either:

Any other handicapping association will be case by case and at Shane’s discretion

ALL PLAYERS ARE REMINDED THAT WHICHEVER ASSOCIATION YOU USE TO MAINTAIN YOUR HANDICAP, THE HANDICAP IS STILL YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AND YOU SHOULD ENSURE IT IS UP TO DATE AND ALL YOUR SCORES GOOD OR BAD (IN THAILAND OR ABROAD) GO INTO YOUR PLAYING HISTORY. IF YOU HAVE 2 USGA BASED HANDICAPS PLEASE USE YOUR MOST UP TO DATE ONE WHEN ASKED AT REGISTRATION

THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO KEEP THE INTEGRITY OF OUR EVENTS AND INTEGRITY OF THE GAME OF GOLF
