ANNUAL RCL MASTERS GOLF TOURNAMENT – POSTPONED DUE TO CORINAVIRUS. NEW DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED ASAP.

This is our flagship fundraiser for the year. Come and join us for a wonderful day, starting with a golf tournament at the award winning The Els Club Teluk Datai (check here) designed by Ernie Els as a tribute to nature within a centuries-old rainforest. In the evening there will be a sumptuous prize-giving dinner at the fabulous 5-star Four Seasons resort. Golf + dinner will cost just RM 690. Not a golfer, but want to join for the dinner only? No problem, dinner only RM 250!

We have also negotiated the opportunity to play a practice round at the Els Club on Friday 24 April and/or a post-tournament round on Sunday 26 April for just RM 255 each round. We also hope to make a special arrangement for a round at Gunung Raya Golf Resort (check here) designed by renowned American golf architect Max Wexler, again at a discount price.

RCL’s Gift of Sight project (through which we help to fund cataract operations for the most needy people on Langkawi) was recognised during the launch of the Ministry of Health’s “Kampungku Sihat” (My Healthy Village) programme. The campaign was launched by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and by Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad at Dr Mahathir’s MP’s constituency Service Centre in Kuah.

LANGKAWI GENERAL HOSPITAL’S 103rd BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION:

RCL continues to support our local hospital and community by funding cataract operations for under-privileged folks who otherwise would find it difficult or impossible to get treatment. This year we plan to fund 20 cataract operations; we have also completely refurbished the children’s play area attached to the children’s ward, and we plan to fund a heart monitor for babies. LGH held a celebration for their 103rd birthday on 15 November 2018, at which RCL featured prominently:
