AFTER a two-year absence, the Srixon Club was held again, with the fifth edition staged at Kota Permai Golf and Country Club in Kota Kemuning, Selangor.
The event featured a full field of 128 players, hosted by Transview Golf and Dunlop Srixon Sports Asia, the local arm of Srixon Golf.
“We were excited when the management of Srixon called us up to resume the Srixon Cup,” said Transview Golf Malaysia director Frankie Choo.
“The tournament has always been among the most popular ones that we manage, and as expected, not long after we launched it on social media, all the spots were taken up, either by our regular clientele or new customers.
“We are most thankful to Srixon for the support ,” said Choo. “The support included a golf cart bag in the goodies and numerous prizes and lucky draw gifts, along with Performance Gear apparel.”
At the prize-giving dinner, Dunlop Srixon Sports Asia managing director Takuya Ono said they were pleased with how the event was run and thanked the golfers for turning up and “making it a success.
“This is our fifth Srixon Cup and we are happy to see some familiar faces, and new ones too, and delighted that everyone (whom we spoke to) had a great time.
“We hope that they will continue to support the brand and as well as our other future events.”
