03 May 2023
Congratulations to Sasin Golf Club for their landslide win at the 11th annual Big 4 Business Schools Competition against Kasetsart University (KU), Thammasat University (TU), and the National Institute of Development Administration of Thailand (NIDA) on April 28, 2023. Big 4 Golf Club was co-founded by Khun Chalermchai Wongwaiwit, a Sasin alumnus (MBA 1984), and former President of Sasin Alumni Association (SAA). Sasin hosted the first tournament in 2010 and won the prestigious Princess Cup. Since then, the Big 4 Sasin Golf Team went through a decade of no wins, interrupted by a 3-year pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, Big 4 has a new tournament format, including two trophies: the original Princess Cup for match play and the new Challenge Cup for stroke play, the original Princess Cup for match play, and the new Challenge Cup for stroke play. As a tradition, part of the proceeds from the event is donated to Pra-Dabos Foundation, an educational foundation founded by King Rama 9. For 2023, Sasin Golf Club, led by Chairlady Khun Somhatai Panichewa (EMBA 1994), sought to win for the second time. Khun Chalermchai announced that he would host a scrumptious Tomahawk ‘n Lobster dinner for the team at his lavish home if the team won. After many months of preparation, practice, and strategizing, Sasin’s Big 4 Team led by Captain Terry Thanasumitra (MBA 1993), Co-Ekapan Prompraphant (MBA 2006), and Khun Watcharin Kedsawapitak (EMBA 2012) was able to put together a strong and diverse team of 40 Sasin alumni and students, representing the classes of 1984-2022. Additionally, four former Presidents of SAA, Khun Chalermchai Wongwaivit (MBA 1984), Khun Kaveepan Eiamsakulrat (MBA 1990), Khun Charn Srivikorn (MBA 1984), and Khun Vichai Bencharongkul (EMBA 2012) also joined the event. Sasin team’s victory was beyond expectations, as they won both cups by wide margins! Tomahawk ‘n Lobster time! SAA and Sasin Golf Club are so glad to see Sasin alumni and students networking through sports and we enthusiastically support all of their activities. Any students or alumni wishing to join Sasin Golf Club or other Sasin sports clubs, please add Line account “sasinalumnilife”.   Story by Khun Terry Thanasumitra (MBA 1993)
