KOTA KINABALU: Golfers around Sabah can expect a new golfing challenge at the Borneo Golf Resort (BGR), Bongawan, come December.

Entering the last phase of renovation, BGR president, Datuk CK Tan announced a ‘Reverse Course’ golf challenge on the Jack Nicklaus-designed greens.

“It is now 90 per cent completed,” Tan said, of the golf course which was formerly known as the Borneo Golf and Country Club (BGCC).

“I believe that golfers are excited to try the new greens. It is exciting but challenging,” he said, adding that the renovation of the greens is completed and they are now awaiting the installation of ‘Tee boxes’.

He said this during a press conference at the Hyatt Regency Kinabalu in conjunction with the 2015 Open Golf Program which was jointly organized by BGR and Hyatt Regency Kinabalu of which proceeds of the event were donated to CSR activities and the Papar Middle School Hostel Project.

“This project began several months ago where, together with the general manager of BGR, Peter Tan, who is himself a veteran golfer, designed the greens.

“We expect the ‘Reverse Course’ to be fully completed by the end of this month and it will be open to the public by December,” he added.

Also present at the event was Hyatt Regency Kinabalu General Manager Arifin Darmawan and Chairman of the Board of Governors of Papar Middle School Vincent Chee.
