Livening Up The Gods’ Residence
Having promoted Indonesian courses in Bali for the last two years, Combiphar continued the theme, choosing Parahyangan Golf Club as it’s destination for the 2019 Combiphar Players Championship Pro-Am tournament.
Surrounded by verdant rice paddies, picturesque lakes, and rolling hills, Parahyangan (meaning “the Gods’ residence” or “the abode of the Gods” in Sundanese) Golf Club was a beautiful venue for the fourth edition of the Combiphar Players Championship Pro-Am tournament.
On a bright Saturday afternoon in the eco-city of Kota Baru Parahyangan, Michael Wanandi, President Director of Combiphar, opened the 2019 Combiphar Players Championship Pro-Am. Clients and business partners of the company teed off simultaneously in a shotgun start at midday.
The tournament was attended by a total of 138 participants - 29 professionals and 109 amateurs - who competed on the challenging and beautiful of Parahyangan Golf Club that’s set amidst a dramatic mountainous landscape. After their rounds on the newest championship golf course designed by Bob Moore of JMP Golf Design Group, the participants enjoyed a relaxed evening event organised by OB Golf, including games, delicious food, and interesting entertainment.
The players were given the chance to win fantastic hole-in-one prizes of a new Harley Davidson Roadster on the fifth hole, a Patek Philippe Calatrava Mechanical on the eighth hole, a Porsche 718 Boxter Manual on hole 12, and on the 15th hole, a cash prize of IDR 100,000,000. Unfortunately, no-one was lucky enough to win any of the prizes this time around.
The team composed of Tarik Can (USA), Bimo Bhaskoro, Mochamad Ridwan, Wahyu Budi Tantama, and Aga Soemarno won the Best Gross Overall with a gross of 56, while Sam Gilis (USA), Ng Khin Saw, Shaun, Benjamin Lyman, and Mario’s team claimed the Best Nett Overall with nett 51.8.
The 2019 Combiphar Players Championship Pro-Am tournament was the closing event of the Combiphar Players Championship on the Asian Development Tour. Michael Wanandi felt the tournament was a great success. “I think this tournament is much better than the previous three tournaments. The players, both professionals and amateurs, also greatly appreciated this tournament. Every year, they always take part in the Combiphar tournament because they know this tournament is good quality,” he explained.
