Skål International Hua Hin & Cha Am was relaunched last week, with association members and guests gathered in celebration of the event at the Oceanside Restaurant at Putahracsa Resort, Hua Hin.
The relaunch was the vision of Richard Mehr, general manager at Putahracsa Resort, who will be acting president of the club. He will work alongside Stacey Walton, general manager of Banyan Golf Club, Hua Hin, and acting vice president of the newly relaunched club.
The reinstatement of the club, first inaugurated 11 years go, is “long overdue” for the hotel, golf and tourism industry, according to a Skål statement.
At the event, Mehr thanked club representatives and the 18 founding members from Hua Hin and Cha Am – which included general managers of Hyatt, Marriott, InterContinental, Avani, Anantara, G Resort and Marrakesh – for supporting the relaunch.
Walton, a founding member of Skål International Hua Hin & Cha Am back in 2007, said: “It was unfortunate that the group dissolved a few years ago. I shared the same vision as Richard that there has been a need for an international association where like-minded professionals in hotels, golf courses, travel and tourism can gather and exchange information, share ideas and keep up to date on events and activities in Hua Hin & Cha Am in a sociable environment.”
The next club event will take place at the award-winning Banyan Golf Club, Hua Hin on November 20, 2018 offering a green fee of 2,200 baht (US$67) on the day for Skål members and their guests. To make a tee time, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
