NIST’s 5th annual golf tournament, held on 17 February in collaboration with Amata Spring Country Club in Chonburi, set a new high for the event. The Amata Spring Country Club is one of the few exclusive members-only courses in Thailand, and is the host for the annual Thailand Golf Championship, making it the perfect venue for the tournament. Enjoying gorgeous weather while covering the course, the 35 teams that took part not only provided generous support for our community, but also had the opportunity to network and socialize.
Regardless of the number of shots carded, the golfers all enjoyed the opportunity to pit their skills against the challenging course, as well as their peers. The competition gave way to a buffet dinner, live band and raffle in the evening as the sun dropped over the 18th green and fairway. The generosity of the event sponsors and donors ensured that most of the golfers were able to return home with a prize or trophy. The team winners this year, GE, claimed the Chairman’s Trophy.
As a not-for-profit foundation school, our community largely depends on the support of individuals, groups and organizations that share our vision of changing the world through education. Thanks to our generous sponsors and golfers, proceeds from past tournaments have gone toward campus development at the school. This year we were fortunate to raise a grand total of THB 1,420,482! These proceeds will not only ensure that we can continue providing a high-quality education to our students, but also continue positively impacting the lives of others.
The entire NIST community extends a warm thank you to all of the sponsors, as well as Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa and Sheraton Hua Hin Pranburi Villas for providing lucky draw vouchers.
