SUBANG: The Saujana Golf and Country Club are ready to stage the biggest golf event in the country – the Maybank Malaysian Open, which offers a total purse of US$1.29 million.
The Asian and European tournament directors, David Parkin and David Garlen, inspected the challenging “Cobra” course yesterday and they gave the thumbs up.
“The club is very experienced and they have done everything according to the high standards that have been set. In fact, they have done well to maintain the high quality of the course all year round,” said Parkin.
“From the many times that we have been here, I think, the course is in its best condition.”
Well-versed with the Malaysian weather, Garlen was quick to remind: “Everything is in place but make sure that there is a good bomoh. We do not want heavy rain. After being here for the last eight years, I know about the weather and the bomoh.”
Last year at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club, it rained on all four days of the tournament and the competition had to be reduced to 54 holes.
Meanwhile, tickets will go on sale at the Saujana Golf and Country Club from Thursday. The ticketing booths will be open on competition days from 7am-4pm.
