The prize presentation ceremony for the 12th Baiduri Bank Charity Golf took place today at the RBA Golf Club capping a very successful week for both golf and charity.

For the first time in the history of golf tournaments in this country, there are 5 hole-in-one cars on offer sponsored by QAF Brunei. Golfers stand the chance to win luxury cars including Porsche Cayman S, Porsche Boxster 987, Porsche Boxster 986, BMW 523i and BMW 320 for holes 14, 2, 16, 5 and 12 respectively. Nearest to the pin novelty prizes were also awarded.

Also for the first time 619 golfers registered for the event and 609 played easily surpassing the record 420 for 2006. A number of players have a novel way of contributing by enrolling for 2-3 rounds of the tournament.

The hole in one in this tournament continues to be elusive. There were many near misses throughout rolling agonizingly close to the cup and one actually hitting the pin.

The purpose of the charity golf is to raise funds for the local charities and organizations like Pusat Ehsan, SMARTER, DANA, Child Development Centre (CDC) and others are some of the main beneficiaries. During the prize presentation ceremony, Mr. Pierre Imhof presented to Dato Paduka Alimin bin Hj Wahab, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Pusat Ehsan, Malai Hj Abdullah bin Malai Hj Othman, President of SMARTER and Rose Lim, Senior Occupational Therapist representing CDC. A number of senior government officials and ambassadors were present to witness the presentation.

The public has shown a tremendous response to the charity event and the organizing committee expresses its thanks to the golfers who made this event successful.
