On 5-6 April 2016, British International School, Phuket (BISP) students and siblings Mark and Mint Luangnitikul, won their respective tournaments at a qualifying event for the Thailand Junior Golf Championships.
The event was held in Hat Yai, where Year 9 student Mark carded a score of 6 under over two rounds (68 and 70) on the par 72 course. His younger sister Mint, in Year 5, scored 71 and 77 to win her age bracket.
The brother and sister duo now go to the penultimate qualifying event in Bangkok in September, where they will be confident of securing their place at December’s final, which be held at the Royal Hua Hin Golf Club.
Opened in 1924, the Royal Hua Hin was the very first golf course in Thailand.
