Southeast Asia’s first Tournament Players Club, TPC Kuala Lumpur, won nine awards during the recent Asian Golf Awards gala in Hua Hin, Thailand.
Organized by the Asia Pacific Golf Group, the Asian Golf Awards 2016 saw TPC Kuala Lumpur claim the coveted Asia Pacific Pinnacle Award of Excellence along with the Best Course in Malaysia and Golf Course Superintendent of the Year awards. The club also emerged first runner-up for Best Clubhouse in Asia Pacific, Best ProShop in Asia Pacific, Best Marcomm Manager of the Year and Best HR Manager of the Year, and second runner-up for Best Managed Golf Club in Asia Pacific and Best Locker Room in Asia Pacific.
In addition to the above, TPC Kuala Lumpur also won the Best Golf Experience category at the 2016 Best of Malaysia Awards for the fifth consecutive year.
“It has an extremely exciting journey for TPC Kuala Lumpur this year as we embarked on a massive rebranding exercise to be the very first TPC in Southeast Asia, followed by staging two major international tournaments in the form of the PGA Tour-sanctioned CIMB Classic and Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia consecutively. All the hard work that the team has put in certainly paid off with such tremendous recognition. The awards are a great source of motivation for TPC Kuala Lumpur to continue to our journey to be among the best in the world,” said TPC Kuala Lumpur CEO Steven Thielke.
Formerly known as Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club, the club was rebranded as TPC Kuala Lumpur in August this year following a five-year licensing agreement with the PGA Tour to become part of the tour’s network of Tournament Players Clubs (TPC).
