Garden International School hosts FOBISIA Golf 2014 @ Royal Selangor Golf Club

The prestigious Royal Selangor Golf Club was the setting for the inaugural Malaysian FOBISIA 2014 junior Golf Tournament in partnership with Garden International School Kuala Lumpur. Schools participating included Garden International School, Bangkok Patana School, Shrewsbury School Bangkok, Harrow School Bangkok, Tanglin Trust School Singapore, Alice Smith School, Jerudong School Brunei & British School Manila.

A total of 80 competitors with a range of handicaps registered for the 3 day tournament (including practice round) with visiting schools staying at the tournament hotel, The Micasa.

For the majority of the competitors it was their first time playing at the club and many of them found the course extremely challenging, especially the speed of the greens. They were taken aback with the courses stunning backdrop, the Kuala Lumpur skyline and the Petronas Towers.

What competitors were most impressed with however was the smooth organisation of the tournament, the condition of the course and the knowledge of the caddies who were invaluable when providing advice to young aspiring golfers.

The tournament finished with a presentation dinner in the banquet hall where a brief video of  the tournament was shown, and trophies and medals were given out to the winning teams. It was at this presentation that the contribution of club member Mrs. Khor was acknowledged. She had worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the tournament was a success.

The Principal of Garden international School, Mr. Stuart Walker summed it up nicely in his presentation saying to the students “I hope that you haven’t been spoilt by playing at such a prestigious club with such wonderful facilities”.

Next year the tournament is likely to return to Bangkok however there is no doubt that after such a fantastic tournament FOBISIA Golf will return to Kuala Lumpur and the Royal Selangor Golf Club.
