The Interactive Sustainability Photo Hole on the 15th was the buzzing highlight of the round, as golfers were invited to pose free-style with the End Plastic Waste props next to the teebox.

In addition to Golf Pong on the 17th, golfers were also able to test their skills against adidas Ambassadors and golf professionals CM Chong and Roger Loo in the Challenge The Pro activity.
