The SAM Media Corporate Charity Golf Tournament 2019 is set to bring together 100 members from the media, industry captains, corporate heads, successful entrepreneurs, and the golf fraternities from Kedah, Perak, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Sarawak, Johor and Singapore to tee up to raise funds on the greens.

According to Jasni Shafie, President of SAM, “Our noble intention in organising the SAM Media Corporate Charity Golf is to raise funds for the needy including our members and some charity bodies in Malaysia. We feel that this tournament will be a great platform for the convergence of key industry leaders, golf fraternities, and the Media to help raise charity alongside building good networking and relationship for future collaborative initiatives.”

Jasni added further, “This is SAM’s first collaboration with JGTA and Forest City Golf. Aside from staging this tournament as part of SAM’s 50th Anniversary, the event is also seen as rolling out the Visit Truly Asia Malaysia 2020 and Visit Johor 2020 Campaigns and we hope that many more local and international golfers will take part in our humble yet meaningful event to participate for the joy of playing golf and at the same time doing their fair share of charity as well.”

The tournament is organised by Johor Golf Tourism Association (JGTA is a member of the International Association of Golf Tour Operators or IAGTO based in the UK) for Sportswriters Association of Malaysia (SAM) and is being hosted by Forest City Golf Resort in Johor Bahru at its brand new stunning Classic Course.

Jamal further added, “JGTA and Forest City Golf Resort are staging this charity event in Johor as part of our on-going initiatives to promote golf tourism in Johor as well as to stimulate the tourism businesses in the state in general. Meanwhile it is also a very good opportunity to roll out our Visit Johor 2020 campaign and jumps start all the programmes and events, which we have in the pipeline next year. This is a very good joint-collaborative event and JGTA is excited to organise this tournament for SAM.”
