History

The Phuket Oilfield Classic (POC) stemmed from the interest of 18 avid golfers many of whom are involved in the Oil and Gas Industry in one way or another and who came to Phuket on the 14th November 2008. Such was the enjoyment of not only the company shared but the fantastic golf courses played, that everyone decided we should make this a yearly event and invite many other like minded Oilfield related Colleagues to join in and so The Phuket Oilfield Classic has grown to be a regular fixture in the Oilfield Golfing Calendar.

POC aims to support underprivileged children in Phuket through specifically targeting children’s charities that require support or assistance. Since the very first event until now we have raised over 10M Thai Baht for worthy causes through all our events in Thailand. In Phuket we have assisted in building of schools, homes, scholarships for students, English education programs, Orphanages and many more projects too many to mention. Mark Cameron (pictured above) in 2015 also made history by breaking a Guinness World Record by driving an electric golf buggy from Pattaya to Phuket, taking 32 days to do it and arriving the day before POC 2015 and raising over 2.1M baht for the charity that year.
