THE 20th Baiduri Masters will be remembered for the three golfers who walked away with hole-in-one prizes.
“Even more important was the publicity the remarkable feat managed to generate and how it had contributed towards the community, especially the needy,” said Pierre Imhof, CEO of Baiduri Bank.
“The aim has always been centred on our community. We constantly strive to make a difference, big or small, and this year was no different. <!-more–>
