The Bangkok St Andrew’s Society are sad to announce the loss of Callum Mackie on 7th September 2021. Callum lived in Pattaya, Thailand and was one of our long-term members.
Callum was born on 17th September 1953, a proud father of Stuart and Andrew, brother of Gordon, a Partick Thistle diehard, and was much loved by so many people around the world. A keen golfer, Callum ran his Solar Golf Tour business from 2004 with great success. Callum arranged the very first IGTO convention in Thailand, promoting Thailand golf to the world. This took Thailand up into the World’s top 10 golf destinations and he received the International Golf Tour Operators highly prized award in 2012.
Callum supported our Society golf teams many times, his last in 2016, when we won the coveted Inter-Society Cup for our first time in three years. Sadly, as he succumbed to some health issues, especially with his lungs, golf was taking a back seat, but Callum’s support or sense of humour never waned.
Callum’s funeral took place on Tuesday, 14th September. We pass on our sincere condolences to all the family.
RIP our dear friend.
