The media meets golf at the SAM Media Corporate Charity Golf 2019, organised by Johor Golf Tourism Association (JGTA) for the Sportswriters Association of Malaysia (SAM) at Forest City Golf Resort on the 24th of November 2019.
The golf tournament brought on about 80 members of the media and industry captains, as an effort to raise funds for several charity bodies and jumpstart the Visit Johor 2020 programmes next year. Golf fraternities from Perak, Selangor, KL, Sarawak, Singapore, South Korea, and Belgium also joined in to raise funds.
This event was the first golf charity event collaborating media with industry players and public sectors, hosted by Forest City Golf Resort at its brand new Classics Course. The Classics Course, launched on 18th August 2019 by Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Dr. Sahruddin Jamal, features a three-dimensional creative garden landscape designed to challenge, offering a stimulating golf experience for both professional and amateur golfers.
Col. Mohd Jamal Salleh, Johor Golf Tourism Association’s President, emphasised that the event was also to support the Visit Johor 2020 campaigns. “JGTA and Forest City Golf Resort staged this charity event in Johor as part of our on-going initiatives to promote golf tourism in Johor Darul Ta’zim as well as to stimulate the tourism businesses in the state in general.”
Dr Qiu Li Peng, the General Manager of Forest City Golf Club said, “Forest City Golf Resort is very excited and pleased to collaborate with JGTA in hosting the first ever SAM Media Corporate Charity Golf here at Forest City.”
