HASSAN Rahmat signed for two rounds of three-under 69 and a 138 total to capture the top prize in the inaugural Selangor Golf Classic.

Staged over two days at the Mines Golf Club and Kota Permai Golf & Country Club, where a full field of 128 players from around the country turned up, Hassan proved way too strong for what was a formidable field.

For his efforts he received a 49-inch television and a trophy.

The A Medal title went to 12-handicapper Goh Kian Seng, who finished with 75 Stableford points – 39 on the first day and 36 on the second. He took home a 43-inch Smart TV and a trophy.

In the B Medal, Magenthiran Thanimalai, playing off a 14 handicap, emerged with the honours.

He topped a four-way tie on countback.

He garnered 37 in each round and won a Cleveland HB driver and trophy.

Speaking at the event, Tourism Selangor general manager Azrul Shah Mohamad said the Selangor Classic was “a great platform” to reset the state’s tourism vision, especially in the golf industry.

“Considering that the recovery movement control order remains in force, the Selangor Classic is a bold step because it is one of the first full-field amateur tournaments to be staged in the new norm.

“Tourism Selangor is encouraged by the positive response to the tournament and not only do we see this event becoming a mainstay in our tourism calendar, but we will also explore the possibility of expanding it to include other clubs in Selangor as well as incorporating a golf fair or festival,” he added.

Azrul presented Kota Permai with a

“Best Golf Experience in Selangor” award, for what he said was recognition for the outstanding experience that the club delivers for visiting golfers.

Gamuda Land club, townships, and property management director Tang Meng Loon received the award on behalf of the club.

The partners of the Selangor Classic included The Mines and Kota Permai Golf, Srixon, Sunway Hotel, Corum, Nuprep and F&N Beverages.
