The Carlsberg Golf Classic makes a welcome return with the 2022 edition set to tee off next month, after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hailed as "Probably The Smoothest Golf Tournament", the 27th Carlsberg Golf Classic will offer more than RM1.6 million worth of prizes over 32 preliminary legs and a National Finals.

Since its inauguration in 1993, the Carlsberg Golf Classic has grown from strength to strength and is now widely acknowledged as the biggest and longest-trunning amateur golf series in the country.

Carlsberg Malaysia Managing Director Stefano Clini noted:“Our investments behind the three-decade long Carlsberg Golf Classic tournament shows our unwavering support towards the sport, the golfing fraternity and the golfing industry. To us, Carlsberg is all about bringing people together for ‘celebration’, hence, we upped the game this year with greater prizes and excitement for both avid and new golfers to play, network and talk about golf in a fun, exciting and less competitive setting.

“Proud to be Probably The Smoothest Golf Tournament, we’ve raised the bar this year with the first edition of Carlsberg Golf Festival in conjunction with the National Finals, novelty shots on the green, and complemented by our signature brews, including – Carlsberg Smooth Draught and the non-alcoholic beverage – Somersby 0.0 sparkling fruit juice,” Clini added, speaking during the official launch at Saujana Golf & Country Club on June 29.
