33 students from the HKSPC Operation Santa Claus Fanling Nursery School were also there to receive a complimentary golf clinic offered by the club. It was an unusual opportunity for them that they enjoyed massively.
The event started with a lunch buffet and opening ceremony, followed by a shotgun start. After the fun and (sometimes) competitive afternoon on the links, we did the 19th hole proud before a buffet dinner and prize giving. The prizes were beyond generous, thanks to our very supportive sponsors, as were the players who contributed either through raffle tickets or direct donations to the society. One lucky chap, playing with HK Golfer Magazine’s Publisher, found himself the winner of three golf bags in the raffle.
Fred Ma and Joyce Fung won the Individual prizes. The Team prize went to Fred Ma, Kenneth Lau, Neill Callan, and Chad Schofield, who also picked up Mens’ Longest Drive. Ladies’ Longest Drive went to Ma Jia, while Nearest to the Pin was picked up by William Chan.
Overall it was a wonderful day and a very successful fundraiser for the HKSPC. The money raised will enable us to continue to provide caring and welfare for the needy children of Hong Kong. Our thanks once again to all who participated.
If you would like to participate in any way next spring, we welcome players, sponsors and donors. Please contact Corinna Pang at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
