Sportswriters Association of Malaysia and Johor Golf Tourism Association recently announced an event created to raise funds for SAM Media Corporate Charity Golf 2019. It will be hosted on 24th November 2019 at the Forest City Golf Resort in Johor Bahru at its brand new stunning Classic Course.
The Charity Golf Tournament 2019 is all set to place in proximity to 100 members from the media, industry captains, corporate heads, successful entrepreneurs, and golf fraternities from Kedah, Perak, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Sarawak, Johor, and Singapore to tee up and raise funds on the greens.
According to En Jasni Shafie, President of SAM, “Our noble intention in organizing the SAM Media Corporate Charity Golf is to raise funds for the needy including our members and some charity bodies in Malaysia. We feel that this tournament will be a great platform for the convergence of key industry leaders, golf fraternities, and the Media to help raise charity alongside building good networking and relationship for future collaborative initiatives.”
Jasni added further, “This is SAM’s first collaboration with JGTA and Forest City Golf Resort as we wish to stage the tournament at the newest golf course in the country whilst attracting some Singaporeans and Koreans to come and play in the tournament. We have a few coming from Singapore and as far as Sarawak to partake in the tournament. Aside from staging this tournament as part of SAM’s 50th Anniversary, the event is also seen as rolling out the Visit Truly Asia Malaysia 2020 and Visit Johor 2020 campaigns and we hope that many more local and international golfers will take part in our humble yet meaningful event to participate for the joy of playing golf and at the same time doing their fair share of charity as well.”
According to Col. Mohd Jamal Salleh, Johor Golf Tourism Association’s President, “The Classic Course has narrow fairways and water hazards with many flower beds that make for more difficult ball spotting. However, overall the Classic Course at Forest City is definitely one worth playing, the greens and terrains are especially tricky and undulating, but it offers an excitingly challenging golf experience to both professional and amateur golfers. Every ardent golfer must come and try this premium golfing experience at the Classic Course.”
Col. Jamal further added, “JGTA and Forest City Golf Resort is staging this charity event in Johor as part of our on-going initiatives to promote golf tourism in Johor Darul Ta’zim as well as to stimulate the tourism businesses in the state in general. Meanwhile, it is also a very good opportunity to roll out our Visit Johor 2020 campaign and jumps start all the programs and events which we have in the pipeline next year. This is a very good joint-collaborative event and JGTA is excited to organize this tournament for SAM.”
It will be a fun-filled day for the golfers as they can enter various competitions, including hole-in-one, longest drive, closest to the pin, closest to the line contests, and stand a good chance of winning some grand prizes. The participants will have a chance to win many prizes namely for the challenge trophy including the top 3 best team awards, the top 3 best individuals, 6 novelties prizes, 4 Holes-in-One prizes as well as the grand & lucky draw prizes.
