MERCEDES-Benz Malaysia have announced the return of the MercedesTrophy amid expectations of another great tournament series.

The event has more than 30 years on the clock and evolved into a tournament for amateurs in over 60 countries.

“The connection between Mercedes-Benz and golf is deep-rooted as we share the same passion for perfection, ” said Dr Claus Weidner, the president and chief executive officer of Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.

“They both share a similar spirit in striving to get the perfect drive and this is what our customers love the most. This strong connection has led to the active involvement of our brand in this sport since 1989 and the MercedesTrophy since 1991.

“The sport always brings us back together for more and it is capable of turning anyone

into a fan of both the game of golf and our brand, ” he added.

The MercedesTrophy is an exclusive invitational tournament for Malaysian customers.

Over 60,000 golfers in more than 60 countries tee off in the event each year. It now takes place annually on every continent and more than a million Mercedes-Benz customers have teed off in it since its inception.

This year’s competition will be played over five qualifying rounds with the first at Palm Garden Golf Club in Putrajaya on May 25.

The top five winners of each round will advance to the national final which will be held at Saujana Golf & Country Club in Selangor on July 15.

The finalists will also be invited to the first Mercedes-Benz Demo Clinic Day. With the support of professional fitters and golf pros, participants will receive analysis of their swing profile and club assessment.

The first player to achieve a hole-in-one on any of the two designated par-3 holes at each venue will win the all-new Mercedes-Benz E200 SportStyle Avantgarde worth RM329,888.

Some of the other prizes include exclusive Mercedes-Benz merchandises and novelty prizes from the marketing partners, including Mercedes-Benz Services Malaysia, CrestLink, EPOS Watch, The Edge, TaylorMade, Saujana Hotel and Carlsberg.
