GOLF REPORT FOR 2004

GOLF REPORT FOR 2004

The Montfort Monthly Golf
1st March 2002 saw the beginning of “Montfort Monthly Golf Friendly” event where champions and runners-up emerged on two formats of “Best Honest John” and “Best Nett Stroke Play”. The monthly games generated lots of interest from the old boys who looked forward to every game making it a regular affair for the die-hards on the green.

Kudos to the golfers from class of 1970 who started this social game amongst them, and kick-started it to an official MA Monthly Golf friendly, introducing winner trophies through the initiative of John Tan.

Ties were rekindled amongst Montfortians and the golfing group thrives on continuing till today. Besides the monthly meet, there were also golf charity events, which the group generously supported. See the MA Archives for articles and pictures.

Thai CGA 2004 Invitation
Additionally, in the year 2004 a contingent of about 25 Montfortians travelled to Bangkok for a golf event organized by the CGA of Thailand.

This trip included sightseeing tours for non-golfers and wives whilst we played at Lakewood Golf and Country Club / Suprapuek Golf and Country Club. A few also attended final day of The Johnny Walker Classic tournament at The Alpine Golf and Country Club accompanied by Gordon Lim, Gabrielite and our “Johnnie” sponsor.

Singapore CGA Golf Formation
News of the Montfort Golf Monthly spread rapidly here by word of mouth, and from the Thailand trip to golfers to schools under the umbrella of The Bros of St Gabriel’s. Soon they, too, joined in making it a bigger family affair.

From February 2004, this regular outing has been re-named CGA (Confederation of Gabrielites Alumni) Singapore Golf Outing to include golfers from St Gabriel’s, Boys’ Town and Assumption schools.

Sponsors & Thanks
Additionally, in the year 2004 a contingent of about 25 Montfortians travelled to Bangkok for a golf event organized by the CGA of Thailand.

Lastly, this event would not be successful without the full cooperation, patience, and understanding from the golfers on any shortcomings and all members of the various golf clubs who assisted in playing hosts. A round of applause to all of you.

Despite the very short notice to organize the dinner, the Organizing Committee made up of the Principals of the Gabrielite Schools pulled it off successfully. The dinner was a sell-out, attended by more than 700 old boys and supporters. Amongst the VIPs were Mr. Lim Boon Heng, Minister, Prime Minister’s Office, Mr. Ng Kok Song, Managing Director, GIC, Mr. Michael Tan, previously Senior EVP Singapore Airlines, Khun Wanlop Chiaravanont, President, Confederation of The Gabrielites Alumni, [CGA] Thailand. CGA Thailand sent a contingent of 4 Senior Officials to grace the occasion.

SGF03

Apart from the good spread, merry making and catching up of old times, each school put up a special item which had the audience rapt in attention. The Dinner also raised some $20,000 for the Foundation.

Everyone had a great time, and people were still milling around long after the party was over.

MONTFORT WALKATHON 2004 JULY

MONTFORT WALKATHON 2004 JULY

images_MS2004-Misc-Walkathon

The Guest-Of-Honour, BG (NS) George Yeo flagged off the Montfort Walkathon 2004 on 23rd July 2004, 8 a.m., with the theme “The Sporting Montfortian”. The combined Montfort Junior and Montfort Secondary event was organized to raise funds through donation cards. The presence of well-known sportsman, James Wong, added a touch of celebrity to the event and he was an excellent role model for the young Montfortians who harbour similar aspirations to excel in sports.

The MA also participated in the fund raising event and many members turned up all geared up and added to the fun by joining in the walkathon. The event turned out to be a grand success and the schools managed to raise close to $45,000 together. The funds will go towards the PRIME and school development programme.

We thank everyone who joined in the morning walk and all those who contributed to making this event a success!
