The “standard” electric golf cart selected will include some modifications, namely solar panels which will help to increase the power per charge by 20 per cent, giving the cart a range per charge of approximately 85 kilometres.
The route from Pattaya to Phuket is expected to take 24 days.
The intrepid cart drivers will raise funds by stopping to play in some of Thailand’s most famous golf courses, with the final round to be played at Laguna Phuket.
“The journey from Pattaya to Phuket will take approximately 24 days, travelling 1,200 kilometres through nine provinces,” said Haslam.
“While we expect the journey to be challenging, tiring and fun, the main aim is to draw attention to the foundation.”
Should the golf cart start to fall behind schedule, Phuket-based racing driver Dylan Young may be called in to make up lost time.
There will be no problem recognising the pair should they be at a golf course near you as their clothing has been sponsored by GOT shirts and Loud Mouth golf apparel.
Among others, Fox Sports Asia and Golf Channel Thailand will be airing the footage of the trip and highlighting the experiences of the journey.
The journey will conclude with a Gala fundraising event at the Phuket Hard Rock Café where the drive will be recognised by Guinness World Records as a new world record.
All proceeds will go to Phuket Has Been Good To Us, a Thai-registered charity established in the aftermath of the 2004 Asian tsunami. The money raised will enable them to continue to expand their much needed English education programme that provides free English lessons to more than 1,000 underprivileged Thai children aged three to 18 in three government schools in Phuket.
