The Laguna Phuket Hospitality Challenge was first dreamt up by Mark Cameron of Asean Events and Paul Wilson the Golf Operations Director at Laguna Phuket, over a coffee one sunny morning after a round of golf on the Laguna Championship Golf Course, back in 2016.


Paul had supported Asean Events other tournaments in the past and had wanted to do something with Mark at Laguna for a while, so over a coffee they both came up with a great idea of bringing together the tourism industry (which is the main sustenance of why Phuket exists) by holding a Hospitality Charity Golf Day, that would encourage the Hospitality and Service Industry professionals to come together and give something back to the community and local children’s charities.


The first Hospitality Challenge was held in July 2016 and was such a fun and successful day that the second event was inevitable. The second event in June 2017 was so well attended and supported and raised over 200,000 baht for the kids, that it has now become a yearly fixture in the Laguna event calendar. The 2018 event is already fully sold out for hole sponsorship and will be the most sought after golfing ticket on the island, so if you are not in yet, register today!!
