New Kuta Golf is holding its first charity tournament "Swing for the Poor" which will be held Sunday, June 28, 2009, with proceeds going to ROLE Foundation's education and training programs for people living on South Bali's Bukit Peninsula.
The par-72 golf course in Pecatu recently hosted the Indonesian Open 2009, the first time that event was held outside of Jakarta. Perched above a limestone cliff, overlooking Dreamland and Balangan Beach, the Ronald Fream-Designed Course is lauded as both challenging for accomplished low handicappers and a rewarding golf experience for the novice player. The course features sea and inland water views, with four of the back nine holes overlooking the aqua marine waters of the Indian Ocean.
The ROLE Foundation has recently opened an Eco Learning Park in Sawangan, Nusa Dua. ROLE's primary mission is to provide education and training to needy women, serving those who are illiterate and lacking practical skills. The Bukit area was chosen by ROLE because, despite rampant tourism and real estate developments, the people of this region continue to be economically marginalized by tourism. By arming those it assists with education and skills, ROLE hopes to create opportunities for employment and business creation.
ROLE's 1.5 hectare Eco Learning Park also serves as an integrated educational center for school children and visitors alike to learn about critical environmental issues facing Bali.
Play commences at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 28, 2009, with a shotgun start with play using a stableford system. Dinner and the award presentation follow at The Link Restaurant which overlooks the 18th hole and putting greens.
