Teeing off in style

The debut version of the much-awaited Reef Fest 2014, a family fun carnival was held at the Champion Reef Golf County, a golf villa community on the outskirts of Bangalore. 

Organised with a view to expand interest in the game of golf beyond the relatively small active golfing population and expose the charm of a golf course to non golfers, the event was organised in a fair format with golfing and non golfing activities galore. Hundreds of patrons and well-wishers gathered at the sprawling golf course grounds for a day of fun on a golf course.

The day-long carnival had a live band performing non-stop featuring songs for all age groups. Auto enthusiasts, both young and old, had a feast for their eyes with the line-up of superbikes from Triumph that showcased the legendary classic Bonneville to the most expensive 2300CC Rocket III Roadster, the production bike with the largest engine in the world.

There was also a food centre set up by Marriott, Whitefield. Wine-tasting, game of mini-golf, dirt cycling, nail painting, art workshop, ‘kalaripayattu’ display dirt cycling, barbecue sessions, golf clinics etc were some of the many attractions.


While golfers were enthralled and educated by a set of ace golfers that included golf’s lovely lady Sharmila Nicollet, master coach Tarun Sardesai, the young sensation – Khalin Joshi and ace amateur, Trishul Chinnappa who impressed the audience with their prowess.

 Non-golfers were introduced to the game through a range of fun golf contests.  Sharmila also kept the shutterbugs busy posing with her numerous fans through the day. The carnival, perhaps the first-of-its-kind, certainly evoked a longing for the golf course amongst all who attended and banished beliefs that golf side living was just for golfers!
