Shah Alam, 7 September 2017 – While most golf competitions in town offer competitive golf, Carlsberg Golf Classic, the country’s biggest and longest running amateur golf tournament kicked off Probably the Best Golf Tournament with over RM3 million worth of prizes and a twist of fun. In August, the amateur tourney saw overwhelming response with over 700 golfers participated at seven golf clubs, namely Bukit Jawi Golf Resort, Kelab Sungai Petani, Kelab Rekreasi Tentera Udara (KRTU) Butterworth, Kelab Golf Titiwangsa PDRM, Templer Park Country Club, Glenmarie Golf & Country Club and Royal Selangor Golf Club.
14 nett and gross winners of the mentioned preliminary legs had not only won a 40” Sharp LED TV, but also have been invited to celebrate their victory with 10 friends at Probably the Best Lounge, Carlsberg Malaysia’s Brewery in Shah Alam. They are qualified to represent their respective home club to compete at the Carlsberg Golf Classic National Finals that will be held in December. Rewarding hole-in-one prizes up for grabs are Mercedes-Benz C250 and C200, a Sharp 70” LED TV and an Ogawa Masterdrive massage chair.
“Carlsberg, Probably the Best Beer in the World, is turning 170 years young this November. We believe what better way to celebrate the milestone than hosting winners of Carlsberg Golf Classic and their golf buddies a night of great fun with quality brews right at our brewery. Adding more excitement, the game also incorporated 3 types of fun games where golf avids can bring home our latest product innovation, Carlsberg Smooth Draught – Probably the Smoothest Beer in the World,” Lars Lehmann, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia commented.
While every golfers ace each swing with the grand prizes in mind, the lucky golfer who landed the ball nearest to the Carlsberg Smooth Draught inflatable bottle structure placed at Par 4 won the “Nearest to Bottle” game and walked home with an Adidas Ball Marker Belt.
