THE 2018 AMH Island Classic Charity Golf Tournament is all set to tee off today at the private golf course of His Majesty the King in Saffriya.
The three-day high profile golfing event, being held under the patronage of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, raises funds for the community outreach programme of the hospital.
The first flight will tee off at 7:30am on the first day today while the official opening ceremony will take place at 12noon and a second round of golfers tee off at 12:30pm.
The tournament which follows the Florida Format will also feature several side contests adding to the fun and excitement of the event.
“Golfers look forward to playing at the Island Classic every year as it is the only opportunity to experience this one of a kind golf course,” said AMH Fundraising, Community and Marketing Manager Ali Tarada.
“We are honoured by the tremendous support from the community of Bahrain.”
“We are extremely grateful to His Majesty for once again giving us the unique opportunity to conduct the Island Classic at his private golf course. We are also grateful to each and every one of our sponsor who have contributed towards this event,” said AMH CEO-CMO Dr George Cheriyan.
The event will culminate with a Gala Dinner on Sunday at the Diplomat Radissonblu Hotel and Spa where sponsoring companies will be honoured.
