Golf Enthusiasts Compete in an Exciting Showdown in the Carlsberg Golf Classic #NEXTGEN Finals

Late last month, I was at Carlsberg Golf Classic #NEXTGEN National Finals 2023 which took place at Tropicana Golf & Country Resort. It is an highly-anticipated affair for devoted golf enthusiasts, delivered an exciting year of 35 golf games brimming with electrifying experiences for both on and off-course players this year. With its grand finale set against the backdrop of the splendid 27-hole championship golf course at the Tropicana Golf & Country Resort on 27th October, the competition ignited a vibrant tapestry of exceptional skills and performances, as each participant showcased their finest form on the pristine fairways.

Regarded as the pinnacle of amateur golf competitions, the CGC #NEXTGEN began play in May and attracted 3,600 enthusiastic competitors. There were three virtual legs held at golf simulator shops, and competitors competed at 32 golf clubs throughout Malaysia to earn a berth in the National Finals. The brand's creative approach of motivating off-course players to take part in on-course competitions, transforming their interest, and inspiring the upcoming generation of golfers is reaffirmed in the new virtual version.

As players took to the greens and displayed top-notch showmanship, the tournament culminated in an explosion of enthusiasm as Nor Azmi Akob clinched the championship title, by shooting 67 against 64 avid players, taking home with him a Fenix 7 Sapphire Solar multisport watch, Stealth KBS Max 85 JV (22) ST 5-9P,S golf clubs, and Talormade 9’ FlexTech Waterproof Stand Golf Bag. 

Carlsberg brews were also raised in celebration as Gross Winner Gwee Li Jun won a Garmin Marq GPS Smart Watch, a Stealth KBS Max 85 JV (22) ST 5-9P,S golf clubs and Talormade 9’ FlexTech Waterproof Stand Golf Bag with a score of 73. Emerging as Gross Winner for two years running, Gwee, 29, said, “This victory has grown my love for the game, and I've gained confidence in my abilities. 

The CGC #NEXTGEN tournament's growth, with thousands of participants across Malaysia, is fantastic for the development of golf in the country and it creates opportunities for newcomers. Moving forward, I plan to continue improving my game and look forward to the next tournament. This win has only fueled my passion for the sport, and I can't wait to see what the future holds."
