This year, the Baiduri Bank Charity Golf will be held at RBA Golf Club from 28 – 30 April 2006.

A signing ceremony for the sponsorship of the hole-in-one car prizes was held this morning at the QAF Motor Showroom in Beribi. Signing on behalf of QAF Motor Group was HRH Pengiran Muda Abdul Qawi, Executive Deputy Chairman and CEO of QAF Brunei, while Mr Pierre Imhof, General Manager of Baiduri Bank, signed on behalf of Baiduri Bank Group.

Proceeds from the charity golf tournament will benefit a number of local charities and welfare bodies that provide help and support for individuals with special needs. Since the launch of its inaugural charity golf tournament, Baiduri Bank Group has contributed substantially towards various health and education initiatives organised by welfare bodies such as the Child Development Centre, Pusat Ehsan and SMARTER Brunei. These include major projects such as the Special Olympics, charity concerts, early intervention programmes and professional training workshops for local therapists.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Mr Pierre Imhof said, “Baiduri Bank Group recognises the importance of community involvement and the need to give back to the community where we belong. We are honoured to work with government agencies and local charities to provide deserving individuals with quality, personalised training programmes, educational facilities and preparation for independent living in a caring environment.

"We are very grateful to our strategic partners, media supporter and corporate sponsors, whose generosity and enthusiastic support has helped to make this event possible.

“The joining together of sport and charity is a formidable way of allowing all of us to participate in a worthy cause. Through our contributions, we are able to elevate the lives of many in a significant way. We hope more golfers will join us this 28th April and contribute towards making a difference in our community,” he added.

The tournament is open to any golfer with a valid handicap of up to 28 for men and 36 for women. This year, a new Junior Golfer category has been introduced, to cater for golfers below the age of 18.
