ParGolf People’s Choice Awards 2017

The top golf clubs in the country were celebrated in the ParGolf People’s Choice Awards 2017 presentation ceremony, held on March 31 at the Carlsberg Brewery.

The ParGolf People’s Choice Awards is based solely on online voting by the public from January to March, with awards presented to the top three clubs in each of 12 categories.

This year’s second edition saw three new categories, namely Best Championship Layout, Best Customer Service and Best Clubhouse. “The main purpose of the ParGolf People’s Choice Awards is to recognise excellence in the Malaysian golf course industry. Hopefully this will provide an impetus for golf clubs and resorts to continuously maintain a high standard in all aspects of their operations,”” said Suzannah Gun Palmer, the publisher of ParGolf.

The award presentation also doubled as a golf industry gathering, with close to 70 representatives of the recipient clubs in attendance. Also present were the winners of a voters’ contest, who received prizes from Srixon and Cleveland Golf.

“No one is a better judge of any product than the consumer himself, which in this case is the golfer. Our appreciation to the thousands of golfers who voted and to Srixon Sports Asia and Carlsberg for being our partners for the second year running in the ParGolf People’s Choice Awards,” said Jonathan Ponniah, the managing editor of ParGolf.
