Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Penang’s Pitch and Putt Golf raised more than RM20,000 for the construction of a new pond for baby turtles at Penang National Park.
Thirty-two golfers participated in the event, limited to an elite group of players, was a huge success, being the first-ever golf tournament organised by the resort in collaboration with Malaysia’s leading golf magazine, Golf Vacations Malaysia.

The tournament was reduced to nine holes instead of 18 in the afternoon due to heavy downpour. Despite the unpredictable weather, the mood was upbeat, with all golfers enjoying themselves with free-flowing champagne and beer.

Shortly after the tournament, they were treated to a buffet dinner and live entertainment at The Marquee next to the golf course. Goodie bags were given away, while a photo booth was set-up for snapshots. Lucky draw prizes of complimentary stays at Shangri-La properties in Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Hong Kong were given out. During dinner, an auction was held for Corum clocks worth RM6,000 each, a Maurice Lacroix Swiss watch worth RM10,900, Mercedes golf bags worth RM6,000 each and a TaylorMade wedge, among many other items on the list for a good cause.

By the end of the evening, almost everyone ended up with a prize each. The word around is that every golfer was excited and looking forward to the second edition of the golf tournament.

“It is such an honour to be able to host members of the local business community in our first-ever golf tournament for a worthy cause,” said Nick Flynn, resident manager of Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Penang. “We are so fortunate to have them spend the whole afternoon mingling and talking among friends. A huge ‘thank you’ to the sponsors who helped make the golf tournament an exciting and successful fundraising event.”

The event’s sponsors include Golf Vacations Malaysia, Corum (M) Sdn Bhd, Cycle & Carriage Bintang Bhd, Adidas (M) Sdn Bhd, Titleist, TaylorMade and Chandon.
