Nusa Dua Golf and Country Club , December 19th , 2008 entertained the inaugural Coca Cola Bottling Indonesia versus PT Quiksilver Indonesia Challenge . The elite Quiksilver Golf team consisting of CEO Paul “Hutty” Hutson , Sports Marketing guru Jake “ The Snake “ Paterson, Professional Surfer Tipi “ Tiger“ Jabrik, and a late ring‐in Neil “ Springbok “ Power took no time to dispose of their opponents with golfing prowess and a fair amount of good old sledging. To say the least it was a white water smashing by the Quiksilver team.
The contest was tight after the first 9 holes with Quiksilver only up by a mere two holes, but as the saying goes “when the going gets tough the tough get going” and on the back 9 Quiksilver really found their swing and wiped the greens with the Coke team.
The rules for the day were unique in itself; a two ball Ambrose with every team member having to count 6 drives per team making it a great challenge for the part time golfers and full time surfers. To make it even more interesting a very unique rule in golf of the mandatory consumption of one litre of a preferred Alcohol mixer of Coca Cola JD. This really sorted out the men from the boys. The ultimate prize was the losers had to shout dinner. Hutty declared “It was a great day had by all and Quiksilver team throw out the challenge to any other surf company that thinks they can hit a golf ball as Quiksilver is ready and willing to maintain their bragging rights as Bali’s number 1 Surf Industry Golfing champions.!”
The trophy sits proudly in Hutty’s office on top of his Coke Fridge.
