Par Golf People's Choice Awards 2016

03 April 2016

 

The inaugural ParGolf People’s Choice Awards came to a successful conclusion with the staging of the awards presentation ceremony at the Carlsberg Brewery in Shah Alam on Wednesday, March 30.

More than 60 representatives of the winning clubs attended the event, during which the top three clubs in each of 10 categories were announced. The awards were based solely on online voting on www.pargolfmagazine.com by the public from January to March 2016.

“The purpose of the ParGolf People’s Choice Awards is to recognise excellence and achievements in the Malaysian golf course industry based solely on public voting. All the award recipients are deserving winners as the votes were cast by the end users themselves, the golfers,” said Suzannah Gun Palmer, the publisher of ParGolf.

“We hope that the awards will spur golf clubs to continue improving in all aspects of their operations, thereby elevating the overall standard of the golf industry in Malaysia,” she added.

The event was also attended by the winners of a voters’ contest, who received prizes from Srixon and Cleveland Golf.
