All ‘Fore” the Children

The St. Regis Bali Resort and The Laguna, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Nusa Dua Support UNICEF Check Out For Children with a Golf Tournament at Bali Golf and Country Club


The St. Regis Bali Resort and The Laguna, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Nusa Dua in partnership with Bali Golf & Country Club recently joined forces to host Bali’s first UNICEF Challenge Golf Tournament on Saturday, 29 October 2011.

Organized to raise a funds for UNICEF's  work on behalf of children, the golf tournament represents a continuing part of a number of similar initiatives, such as the UNICEF Check Out For Children program that raises funds through an additional US$1.00 added to the room bill of each guest. These contributions have helped immunize over one million children in underdeveloped countries since 1995.

UNICEF Challenge Golf Tournament

The event held on October 29th began at 6:30 a.m. with a sumptuous Champagne breakfast at the Arwana Restaurant at The Laguna Nusa Dua for the 26 participating golfers. A short 5-minute transfer to the Bali Golf & Country Club Clubhouse followed where the players paused for yet another glass of bubbly to toast the tournament’s start. Following a shotgun start, play continued with cocktails and canapés served between selected holes of play.

Unconfirmed reports attribute unusually high scores turned in by some players to an inability to count resulting from the generous liquid libations served during play and the possibility that some participants may have actually played more than the mandated 18 holes. Fortunately, with non-drinking caddies firmly in control of the golf carts, no injuries or collisions were reported during the tournament.

The charity golf event ended  with a delicious buffet lunch, complemented with wines, at the Boneka Restaurant at the St. Regis Bali.
During that lunch the day’s winners were announced:
  • Best Gross Score: Pasko Arma
  • Best Net Score: Nigel Day
  • Best Net Runner Up Score: Michael Tyles

Among the prizes awarded were a two-night stay at the residential-style beachfront Strand Villa at the St. Regis Bali and a two-night stay at the Pool Villas at The Laguna Nusa Dua. The Hole-In-One prize of return business class Garuda Indonesia tickets to Singapore and Hong Kong were not won, but auctioned at the luncheon to raise additional monies for the event.

All funds raised from this event goes to the Check Out for Children program to improve lives of children around the world.
