The monies collected were for various charities, including a donation to ailing actor M. Rajoli. During lunch, the participants were treated to entertainment by Fredo, Hattan and Betty.
The organising committee of the inaugural Celebrity Golf Tournament.
On the soggy Saturday morning, at the Tropicana Golf resort, about 120 golfers, mainly entertainment and sports celebrities, plus some media and corporate personalities, participated in the Celebrity Golf Tournaments. Sponsored by amongst others Astro, Berita Harian, Syabar and Tropicana, the charity event was great fun for most but not for me and I looked more at ease hacking and digging the fairways and rough for earthworms instead of hitting the golf ball towards the intended target. My swing is still on vacation so I guess I was there just to make up the numbers. Amongst the celebrities that turned up to play were Harun Salim Bachik, Riezman, Hattan, Ijoi, Dato' Ahmad Tarmimi, Dato' Tengku Annuar Musaddad, Zul Yahya, Thorpe Ali, Betty Banafe, Nancy Foo, Wendy Wong and Ahmad Idham. Sports guys include Khalid Ali and Dollah Salleh. Other guests include Dato' Hishamuddin Aun, David Teoh, Khalid Maulud and Dato Shamsuddin.
