Anyone who succeeds with hitting a Hole-In-One on the 18th hole during the Prime Minister’s Corporate Golf Challenge on September 21 at the Royal Port Moresby Golf Club will drive away with a brand new single cab Toyota Hilux.
The announcement was made by hosts of the event, the Papua New Guinea Olympic Committee after confirming the support of Ela Motors Toyota as a support sponsor of the event.
President of the PNG Olympic Committee, Sir John Dawanincura thanked Ela Motors Toyota for supporting the event and giving participants the chance to win a great prize.
Additionally, top four winners of the event get great prizes from other partners of the tournament which are Air Niugini, Coral Sea Hotels, Theodist and Coca Cola. The prizes include return tickets to Sydney, Brisbane and Cairns from Air Niugini as well as free hotel accommodation in PNG courtesy of Coral Sea Hotels.
Sir John also acknowledged The National who are the major sponsors of the PM’s Corporate Golf Challenge with free advertisements and thanked the Prime Minister for his patronage of the event.
The annual golf challenge is the PNG Olympic Committee’s second major fundraiser which raises much needed funds to send Team PNG to international sporting events such as the Pacific, Commonwealth and Olympic Games.
Sir John said the event has been a major contributor of funds to Team PNG and appealed to organisations to support this worthy cause.

He also thanked those who participated in 2017 and invited them to rejoin the challenge this year.
Last year’s winner was MRDC while the second and third places were taken by Southern Cross and Tupira Surf Club respectively.
“Samoa 2019 is an important Pacific Games for Team PNG and we rely heavily on the support of our partners, stakeholders and friends to help us defend our pride from 2015. PNG has never topped the medal tally at an away Games and we aim to make Samoa the first of many,” Sir John said.
While the event provides for a competitive but healthy rivalry on a great day out on the course, it is also a great opportunity for professionals to meet and network in an informal but enjoyable setting.
