Hyatt Open Names a 15-Year-Old Swedish Teenager The Champion

Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok and Hyatt Regency Hua Hin, in association with the Banyan Golf Club, organised the Hyatt Open 2011 – the second Hyatt annual amateur golf tournament – at the Banyan Golf Club, Hua Hin.

After the game on the second day, the prize-giving luncheon ceremony was held at the golf course.  Amazingly, the winner of the Hyatt Open 2011 was 15-year-old Oscar Odestal from Sweden.  The talented young teenager, who came for a holiday in Hua Hin with his family, received a VIP Golf Holiday at Hyatt Regency Coolum and two rounds of golf at Hyatt Regency Coolum Golf Course.

As a result of last year’s success, this year’s event was well received by not only golf enthusiasts but also sponsors.  There were 120 participants from Bangkok, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore as well as residents of the Hua Hin area.  Kiatnakin Bank, Thai Airways, Toyota and the Post Publishing PCL supported the event.

On the first day, which saw beautiful weather, the first round started at 12:00 noon and the first day’s game was completed at 5:00pm.  A welcome dinner in the Ballroom of Hyatt Regency Hua Hin completed the first day’s event, allowing guests to enjoy a wide selection of international buffet while guests were entertained by the resort’s trio band throughout the evening.  The second day began at 8:00am with new group pairings based on the scores of the first day. 

Fortunately, guests did not have to face the challenges of the weather on the course during this two-day tournament, as the sun was not strong and players were able to enjoy a nice cool breeze from the mountains.  Furthermore, during the two-day event, golf enthusiasts had an opportunity to experience a culinary showcase as well as the authentic hospitality of Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok and Hyatt Regency Hua Hin, as both Hyatt hotels hosted Hyatt’s Food & Beverage Hospitality Kiosk to refresh and re-energise the golfers.
