• Lighthouse Club 4th Annual Golf Day

    17 July 2018

    On March 23rd 2018, the Lighthouse Club Cambodia were delighted to be able to host, our 4th Annual Golf Day, once again in the beautiful surroundings of the Garden City Golf Club.

    Our players numbers have increased each year and we were exceptionally excited that at this year’s event we were able to welcome 60 players, both local and expatriates, including those who flew in especially for the event, all of whom attended  to support the Lighthouse Club and our work here in Cambodia.

     In Cambodia, the Lighthouse Club has now been established for 8 years and our main goal is to support Cambodian students, who due to financial constraints would not be able to continue in higher education. We currently support 7 students by funding their tuition fees and providing them with laptops and living expenses. All these young people are enrolled in construction related further education courses, including degrees in Engineering and Architecture.

    Currently, the Club is able to raise funds for the students through our monthly networking events and at the Annual Lighthouse Golf Days In future, we also hope to include other fun raising sporting and social activities such as five-aside-football.  We are also grateful to the Trustees of the Lighthouse Club Asia Pacific Region Benevolent Trust who assist financially.

    At this year’s Annual Golf Day, aside from all our players, we were also strongly supported by a number of sponsors. Our main corporate sponsor was Knight Frank, and we also had sponsors for every hole at the event.  Adding further entertainment to the day, Todd Ripple sponsored the Ripple Effect cross lake challenge, with Todd matching all donations. Carlsberg Beer also generously donated free refreshments and New York Steakhouse provided a much appreciated BBQ station.

    The Prize giving and dinner that followed the event was held at the Exchange, where tournament winners Hengky Omar and Christopher Martin, were presented with their winning prizes. They were also numerous donated raffle prizes including a global return ticket business class from Qatar Airlines, a BMW Golf Bag and gifts from Jaguar cars including a mini Range Rover.

    In summary, the 4th Annual Lighthouse Golf Day was a huge success with significant much needed funds raised for our students, and a great day was had by all who attended! A huge thank you to all our sponsors. We look forward to seeing you all at the next Annual Lighthouse Club Cambodia Golf Day!
