In what would likely be a first in ama­teur golf, golfers were pleas­antly sur­prised to be ac­com­pa­nied by a bevy of in­ter­na­tional beau­ties be­fore tee off, on the course and dur­ing a prize pre­sen­ta­tion.

The Miss Cos­mopoli­tan World Or­ga­ni­za­tion in part­ner­ship with the Palm Gar­den Golf Club hosted a Big Hole Char­ity Golf event on Wednesday, the 6th of Septem­ber in ben­e­fit of the Yayasan Sun­beams Home for the displaced, abused and ne­glected chil­dren.

The Miss Cos­mopoli­tan World was founded back in 2015 by Amelia Liew, who has vast ex­pe­ri­ence in in­ter­na­tional beauty pageants. Miss Cos­mopoli­tan World is fo­cused on fos­ter­ing unity and un­der­stand­ing among Asia and the world as well as pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for the can­di­dates to fur­ther de­velop in­ter­per­sonal skills through in­di­vid­ual and group ac­tiv­i­ties.

The golf tour­na­ment re­ceived an over­whelm­ing sub­scrip­tion of 92 play­ers who were pre­sented good­ies worth RM1,460. One of the high­lights was a Rolex watch worth RM50,000 that was spon­sored by MPI Gen­er­ali as a Hole-in-One prize on the 17th hole.

Among other nov­elty prizes that were up for grabs was an M2 Blon­dal Out­door wa­ter fil­ter worth RM3,698 and a 40” Sharp LCD TV worth RM1,700.

Other spon­sors of the event in­clude MST Golf, Luen Heng F&B Sdn Bhd and Co­conut Wa­ter (Cowa) Sdn Bhd.

At the prize pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony, the gen­er­ous par­tic­i­pants were treated to a spe­cial per­for­mance by The Strollers, while lucky draw prizes spon­sored by Luen Heng, MST and SHARP were also awarded. An auc­tion was held to raise funds for the home to add on to the tour­na­ment en­try fees.

The auc­tion man­aged to raise RM28,400 and the pro­ceeds were do­nated to the Yayasan Sun­beams Home. The main event of the night was the crown­ing of Miss Palm Gar­den 2017.

With the sup­port from her home crowd Miss Malaysia, Chenelle Wong, walked away as Miss Palm Gar­den 2017. She even­tu­ally fin­ished in fifth spot in the beauty pageant.
