This is the tournament everyone is talking about, and this is the year that we’ve been gearing up for – the 20 anniversary of the Prudential Astro Masters.
Malaysia’s biggest and most popular national golf series celebrates 20 years of golfing excellence, and Astro subscribers can expect a basket of awesome goodies when they sign up to participate in this unrivalled tournament that has captured the hearts of all golfers.
For the first time in Prudential Astro Masters history, all Par 3s will offer a hole-in-one prize highlighted by a Mazda 6, Skyactiv-D Clean Diesel valued at RM216,279.67. The other hole-in-one prizes are a specially created 20 Anniversary Titoni watch worth RM20,000 with return Business Class tickets on Oman Air to Muscat for two, a Special Edition Bridgestone set of irons and a 65-inch Panasonic LED full HD television as Sure-To-Win Hole-In-One Prize.
As in previous years, the grand final is always held at an international destination. For the first time in its 20-year history, winners from the qualifying legs will be rewarded with a trip outside Asia, destination: Muscat, Oman. Finalists will compete for bragging rights as the Champion Golfer of the Year on the rolling fairways of Muscat Hills Golf Club and the links-styled Al Mouj Golf Club.
Adding to this year’s highlights is a unique “live” scoring system at qualifying rounds. This application allows participants to enter scores into tablets which in turn relays the information to the club through the internet. Not only will results be ready within minutes after the round is completed – this system eliminates fraudulent scoring.
Since the Prudential Astro Masters began 20 years ago, nearly 50,000 golfers have experienced the joys and pleasures of playing this unique format that offers great challenges and exhilarating pleasures.
