I was at Sentosa Golf Club yesterday to experience the event myself. The weather was sweltering hot, but lots of golf enthusiasts of all ages braved the heat and were seen enjoying themselves, having a good time at the event.
For selected, premier HSBC customers, they have a special HSBC Hexagon Suite boxed area with a bird’s eye view of the competition grounds.
