Annual Ria Bintan Golf Challenge draws to a close amidst much fanfare
The highly-anticipated 2017 edition of the Ria Bintan Golf Challenge was held on Sunday, 22 October 2017, attracting 111 golfers.
All golfers were presented with a goodie bag worth S$100, and took home prizes from key partners Club Med, Asmara Lifestyle, Spring City Golf & Lake Resort, and TaylorMade.
After the course upgrade over a year ago, golfers were once again treated to stunning views at the signature holes alongside the ocean, surrounded by rock outcrops that are a part of the natural coastal landscape. Participants were also encouraged to take Insta-worthy photos with props, and hashtag #riabintan to share their experience on social media.
Overall champion, Mr Gary Ng, CEO of i.Logistics, clinched the award with a gross score of 75. “I have been playing golf for the past 23 years, and it has helped broaden my network both within my personal and professional circles. I enjoy travelling to different countries to experience different courses, and Ria Bintan Golf Club stands unique as one with spectacular views and challenging course layout,” says Mr Ng.
