Tommy Thompson Wins The 2015 17th Anniversary Jackalope Open

 

With no threat of rain in the Pattaya area, Friday August 7th started with cloudy skies as 102 golfers made their way to the Burapha Golf & Resort for the 17th Anniversary Jackalope Open. Registration opened at 10:00 and after checking in, collecting their anniversary shirt and Jackalope beer cooler most of the players headed for their favorite spots – the Caesar table for the Canadian breakfast specialty. Those not brave enough to tackle a Caesar hunted down Woody and his band of 50-50 ticket sellers for the much wanted raffle tickets. By 11:30 everyone headed out to the golf course ready for the shotgun start, much anticipation hung in the air as individuals prepared their minds towards a good round; of course some of the golfers were thinking when they would see the first “refreshment” cart.

With as usual a few “no shows” this year, the field was slightly smaller than anticipated, which meant more refreshments to go around.

At 12:00 the shotgun was fired and the golfers were off. The field moved around A & B courses. While out on the course, the golfers were treated to the Blue Moose Sports Bar & Grill pulled pork sandwiches and a fleet of “refreshment carts” driven by our hard working volunteers. With no rain, cool temperatures and not too many hold ups encountered, the first groups arrived back at the club house in less than five hours. The golfers were treated to a splendid buffet provided by the Burapha staff while they waited for their scorecard to be checked and tabulated by John Emmerson and his team.

With the stalwart Mark Gorda and his world famous Jackalope Jacket back to MC the event the award presentations kicked off.  Mark led off with an introduction of past and present Jackalope committee members and an account of the Jester and Jackalope partnership outlining how we raised over 4,800,000 Baht over the past 7 years and how we cover the 24/7 care-giving, physical therapy and anti-retroviral medication (ARV) for two children Tewid and Fey living with HIV and severe disabilities.

Champion - The 2015 17th Anniversary Canadian Jackalope Champion is Tommy Thompson with 42 points.

Finally the much anticipated 50-50 draw prizes were picked with the winners, Tai Kanchana ( Kennedy ) receiving half of the total of 237,000.00 Baht collected on the day thanks to the aggressive ticket selling by Woody Underwood, Murray Kerr and their whole selling team – both young and old who sold in excess of 4,500 raffle tickets. Tai  generously donated a very sizeable amount back into the charity.

The final prize awarded for the day was the Jack Levy – McCallen Longest Holed Putt Challenge on hole D9 with the winner Christoph Balzli receiving Baht 10,000.00 and the Jackalope Charity receiving Baht 10,000.00. This was the second time this challenge was held at a Jackalope Open and we hope it will continue with future Jackalope Opens. Thanks Jack for sponsoring this challenge.

Thanks go to all the staff at Burapha Golf & Resort for their excellent service provided on the day. We would also like to thank the many many businesses and people who donated to help us reach a goal of 500,000.00Baht for the tournament

We would also like to thank all the individuals who helped out at the registration and scoring, the Blue Moose staff for the sandwich snacks, the Caesar table “All Star Mixers”, the 50-50 ticket sellers, and all the cart drivers who kept the golfers well stocked with their favorite “refreshments”. It is the effort of all these volunteers that contribute to making the Jackalope Open one of the premier tournaments in our area.

The Jackalope is not just about golf, it is also about giving back to the local community. On this 16th year of The Canadian Jackalope Open we will again be joining with the Jesters CARE FOR KIDS to help provide much needed assistance to the poor or disadvantaged children in the area.
