Top prizes offered in Finishing Post Texas Scramble

A rich swag of prizes has been rounded up for the Finishing Post’s Texas Scramble golf tournament to be held at the Angkor Golf Resort this Saturday morning as a prelude to the festive end of the calendar year. The event is a joint effort between The Post, the Angkor Golf Resort and the Sokha Angkor Resort to help celebrate the wind-up of 2010 in a companionable social setting.

Organisers are hoping for a good turn-out by Phnom Penh golfers due to the long weekend, with Friday being the Human Rights Day public holiday. Prizes are set to be awarded to winning teams, the longest drive and nearest to the pin on the four par-3 holes as well as other bonuses to be decided on the day.

Angkor Golf Resort’s operations manager Adam Robertson said he was delighted with the number of Siem Reap businesses who signed up to provide prizes for the winners.

“This has been a real contribution from the Siem Reap business community, and it’s the most number of prizes from hotels for any event we’ve ever held at the Angkor Golf Resort,” he said.

Several generous accommodation packages are up for grabs, including two nights accommodation at Sokha Angkor Resort in Siem Reap, two nights accommodation at Sokha Beach Resort, Sihanoukville and two nights accommodation with dinner for two at Siem Reap’s classy new boutique hotel, Karavansara Retreat.

Triumphant golfers will be well fed in Siem Reap with spoils including dinner for two at Hotel de la Paix’s Meric Restaurant and dinner for four including wine at Le Bistro in the Victoria Hotel.

Also on offer are complimentary entries into next year’s Sokha Hotel Texas Scramble and FCC Nations Cup, inclusive of green fees and accommodation in Siem Reap.

The Post is also providing a year’s free subscription to one lucky player.

Special VIP passes for the final day’s play of the 2010 Johnnie Walker Cambodian Open on Sunday at the Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf course will also be available.

Meanwhile, it will certainly be a merry Christmas for any golfer who scores a hole-in-one on either of the two designated holes. There’s the chance to pick up a Chevrolet Spark car on the practice hole, while an ace on hole 17 will win a free return flight to any international destination within Vietnam Airlines’ extensive schedule.

Registration for the Finishing Post’s Texas Scramble is at 7.30am this Saturday morning, with a tee-off at 8am. Prize giving is scheduled for 12.30pm.
