Selangor State Government through its Official Tourism Promotion Agency, Tourism Selangor on Tuesday’s Press Conference event announced a delightful news — the organisation of the 3rd Tourism Selangor Golf Tournament 2021 on the 12th of December which will certainly become the day to witness some thrilling golfing actions. The much-anticipated entry in Selangor’s 2021 Calendar of Events willdescend at the venue of the Press Conference, Bukit Beruntung Golf Club, Rawang; a prestigious Golf Club owned by the Menteri Besar Selangor Incorporated (MBI Selangor).
The 18-hole inaugural Tournament will welcome a plethora of golfers; from Selangor’s tourism industry players, top Management in the private sector, celebrity and expatriate golfers, Tournament’s sponsors, golf enthusiasts and members of the Media, to the representatives from Government-linked Companies (GLCs). It is organised with the vision to strengthen existing or future relations among contesting golfers in a competitive yet enjoyable setting.
The State of Selangor, with an impressive number of 29 Golf Clubs across the State which many are award-winning, has a clear route in navigating towards optimal penetration of sports tourism, particularly golf. As the leading and premier Golf Hub in Malaysia, Selangor is a preferred destination by domestic and expatriate golfers seeking some kick and thrill on the golf course, surrounded by the lush of greens.
Mr. Azrul Shah bin Mohamad, Chief Executive Officer of Tourism Selangor in a statement shared, “Tourism Selangor is proud to once again host this inaugural Tournament which has impressively entered its third year of establishment; despite the challenges and glitches which the Covid-19 outbreak has brought upon to the golfing scene these past two years. Golf has emerged as one of the fastest-growing tourism trends, and Tourism Selangor has done an outstanding job with its various initiatives, including hosting the 3rd Tourism Selangor Golf Tournament 2021, following the success of the first and second editions in 2019 and 2020”.
“I hope that by bringing together golfers from the industry, and the Government and the private sectors on one golf course, the Tournament will serve as a catalyst towards creating future next-big-things, regardless of the fact that it has been a hard year to all of us due to the unprecedented pandemic. I assure, it is safe to continue golfing again in Selangor as all of the Golf Clubs in the State emphasize on the implementation of SOPs. Selangor’s tourism is also beginning to recover and rebuild; having entered Phase 4 of the National Recovery Plan”, Mr. Azrul Shah added.
