PEGS – Phuket Expat Golf Society
Its main activity is stimulate interest and participation in the game of golf on the Island by organising events in a variety of formats and to implement and maintain a uniform system of handicapping.
The Society is organised by a non-paid committee, who offer their time and skills for free. The Society also attempts to organise, for members only, special rates with the Island’s courses and a variety of business retailers on Phuket, for both golf and after golf activities.
PEGS organizes monthly medal and Stableford competitions, and occasionally competitions of other formats at courses in and around Phuket, generally on the second and last Thursday’s of every month. Refer to the PEGS Tournament calendar for actual events and their dates.
The annual PEGS MatchPlay event runs from September / October to March of the following year. It is a knockout format where players of all handicaps can take part. Players who are knocked out in the first round of the Cup competition proceed to the Plate competition.
Handicaps are derived from the Society’s regularly organised Stableford and Strokeplay competitions played on the courses around Phuket. Official scores are entered into the international Master Score Board system utilising Handicap Master’s CONGU format.
