Volcanic activity … meh, we headed up to the hills and smashed small white balls around a magnificent caldera course at Bali Handara Golf Resort, truly a spectacular setting in the north of Bali. #weareinbalinow
VIP celebrity chef Farah Quinn joined us courtesy of @exoticridesbali who provided a superb four-door Maserati as transport from the Bali National Golf Villas in lieu of our regular Sky Tours helicopter, sadly in for service this weekend.
But speed was not the issue, and the event saw 50 players battle it out for the top prize of Heligolf – a trip with the Bali Adventure Tours helicopter at their leisure up and back down again including lunch.
The day started with our regular busy set up – giving the golfers among us a chance for an extra round before Practice Day on Friday the 13th, which saw an enthusiastic group carry on their play to the new clubhouse at Handara. Jaguar and Range Rover cars were beautifully provided by PT Nadia Graha Auto.
Proudly sponsored by Albens Cider and Stark Beer, the evening was terrific fun and gave some of our keener participants something to think about in the morning tee off at 8am.
The weather was spectacular for both days, with glorious sunshine flooding the course and giving all players a great opportunity to score well.
Along the way there was entertainment from our sponsors to keep us well fueled until the awards show in the afternoon, beautifully decorated by Bloomz and sponsored by El Kabron with awesome tapas, King Kebab with tasty kebabs, Plaga and Hatten Wines, and Freixenet Cava, as well as great Mexican ice creams from Paletas Wey. Prizes were sponsored by hotels and resorts, as well as Sunbrella, Atlas Pearls and Deus Ex Machina.
We would like to thank all our great supporters, who gave us such awesome prizes, not only for the main categories but also for raffle prizes.
