AND so the game closes on another awesome event – The Yak Magazine Golf Invitational 2.0 held at the Bali National Golf Resort over two days this weekend. Photos: Mirza Nurman.
More than 120 players attended the second in our series of golf events, bringing together sponsors and players at the Nusa Dua course.
Tournament day started with a chipping competition from the clubhouse terrace, held to raise money for charity. The winner went home with a Taylor Made Wedge, and the runner up with a hotel stay. It was a taste of what was to come with a great line up of prizes awarded to more than 25 players.
Celebrities arrived by BAT Sky Tours helicopter in the form of Argentian soccer player Gaston Castano and colleague Andrea Bitar. Participants watched from the clubhouse as the aircraft landed metres away on the 18th fairway.
After a group photo the action moved to the buggy park where a Ferrari led the players onto their tees, each of which was sponsored.
Half way houses provided refreshment from Albens Cider and El Kabron, and entertainment in the form of a Longest Drive Competition sponsored by Oakley Indonesia and a putting competition from RipCurl Asia.
There was Hole In One action too from custom motorcycle brands Deus Ex Machina and Malamadre Motorcyles, as well Mutiara Laut Luxury Schooner.
While no-one walked off with a Hole In One prize, there were awards for Nearest the Pin, and more prizes for the Youngest Player, Team and Individual Winners and Runners Up.
The day would not have been possible without the support of our fabulous sponsors, who included:
Albens Cider, Deus Ex Machina, Exotic Rides, El Kabron, Glenmorangie, Karma Group, Malamadre Motorcycles …
…Mutiara Laut Luxury Schooner, Oakley Indonesia, The Orchard Bar & Restaurant, Plaga Wines, RipCurl Asia and RipCurl School of Surf…
…Bali Adventure Sky Tours, Seminyak Village, XP Properties, Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort, VW Limo Bali…

The event closed with an awards show including a performance from performer Diana Rosa sponsored by The Orchard Bar & Restaurant live music series. With the Glenmorangie done and the winners bearing prizes, the evening wound up with many a happy smile.
“It was heartening to see such a great turnout for the golf and the awards show,” said Publisher Sophie Digby. “We’ll be continuing with our golf event series this October, when we will moving the action into the volcano at the Bali Handara Golf Club. We’ll see you there!”
