DALIT BAY GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB OFFERS FIRST BIG-HOLE GOLF IN SABAH

Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, 7 May 2016 – Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort & Spa, Kota Kinabalu launched “Big Hole Golf” on 5 May 2016 at the resort’s award-winning Dalit Bay Golf & Country Club with 33 invited players to enjoy a fun nine-hole game.  The president of Sabah Golf Association Datuk, George Bandusena, and the resort’s general manager, Jonathan Reynolds, kicked off the event.
 
Keeping abreast with current trends, Dalit Bay Golf & Country Club showcased its new initiative to club members, corporate clients, travel partners and meeting organisers during the event.
 
“I am excited to announce that Dalit Bay Golf & Country Club is the first golf course in Borneo to have big-hole golf, leading the golf trend in Sabah.  The club offers a new style of play for both advanced and new players, a fun and exciting experience,” said Mr Reynolds.
 
The main difference between big-hole golf and traditional golf is the cup size of the hole – 8 inches, compared with 4.25 inches.  Another rule that breaks the tradition is having the flagstick remain in the hole, making it a fast-paced format of the game.  Dalit Bay Golf & Country Club will offer big-hole golf as an added option for golf tournaments for those wanting something different by mixing big holes with normal holes.
