Golf Asia - - GOLFING SCENE -

as the coun­try’s largest and long­est run­ning am­a­teur golf se­ries, the Carls­berg Golf Clas­sic 2017 saw ap­prox­i­mately 125 golfers bat­tling out at its Malaysia na­tional fi­nals held at the award-win­ning Kota Per­mai Golf & Coun­try Club. Over the course of four months, 32 com­pet­i­tive yet fun qual­i­fy­ing legs were suc­cess­fully held across Carls­berg Malaysia’s af­fil­i­ated golf clubs across Penin­su­lar and East Malaysia.

Jimmy Chia, a mem­ber of Kota Per­mai Golf & Coun­try Club and Trop­i­cana Golf & Coun­try Club emerged as Cham­pion of the gross cat­e­gory whilst Yap Chin Tong from Trop­i­cana Golf & Coun­try Club and several other golf clubs in the cen­tral re­gion won the Nett Cham­pion ti­tle. Jimmy Chia with a hand­i­cap of zero scored an as­tound­ing 71 and has par­tic­i­pated in al­most all the tour­na­ments of the Carls­berg Golf Clas­sic over the last 15 years, while 56-year-old Yap Chin Tong play­ing off six, claimed the cham­pi­onship for the Nett cat­e­gory with a score of 68 on count back.

“Liv­ing up to our brand promise of de­liv­er­ing Prob­a­bly The Best ex­pe­ri­ence, we in­jected a twist of fun into the com­pet­i­tive game by of­fer­ing even more ex­cit­ing prizes and fun ac­tiv­i­ties. Be­sides, we also made our brews – Carls­berg, Prob­a­bly the Best Beer in the World and Carls­berg Smooth Draught, Prob­a­bly the Smoothest Beer in the World avail­able for golfers to sam­ple on the green. To golfers who value com­pet­i­tive­g­olf­ing as much as fun-golf­ing, they would agree with me that Carls­berg Golf Clas­sic is Prob­a­bly the Best Golf Tour­na­ment ever!”, Lars Lehmann, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Carls­berg Malaysia said dur­ing the prize pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony.

“I hope you like the lit­tle sur­prises like Prob­a­bly The Best Locker Room which we’ve spe­cially ar­ranged where you can get a per­son­alised golf shirt, a ded­i­cated locker com­plete with two pints of Carls­berg and Carls­berg Smooth Draught as well as Prob­a­bly The Best Chang­ing Room where you can quench your thirst with the con­stant flow of our brews from the chiller in the chang­ing room, at the half way huts and dur­ing cross­over!”, Lehmann added.

The golf tour­ney also ar­ranged fun ac­tiv­i­ties like a ‘Chip­ping Con­test’ and of­fered shoul­der and neck mas­sages at the half way hut. Non-com­pet­i­tive golfers took up some fun chal­lenges such as ‘Lucky Pick’, ‘Near­est to the Pin’, ‘Near­est to the Bot­tle’, ‘Best Group Pic­ture’ and ‘Spot the Carls­berg Smooth Draught Cans’.

More than RM700,000 worth of prizes and good­ies were up for grabs at the Carls­berg Golf Clas­sic 2017 Na­tional Fi­nal. Four Hole-in-one lux­ury prizes such as a Mercedes-benz C350, a Mercedes-benz C200, a Sharp 70” LED TV and an Ogawa Mas­ter­drive mas­sage chair were up for grabs, how­ever, no one made an ace at the fi­nals. The of­fi­cial part­ners of the Carls­berg Golf Clas­sic 2017 were Mercedes-benz, Sharp, Ogawa, Tay­lormade, Cut­ter and Buck, Ti­toni, Sau­jana Ho­tels and Re­sorts, Ga­torade, Jura, Wonda, Sun­play, Par­golf and Lala Chong Seafood Res­tau­rant.
