Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Visitors to next week’s Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia will be treated to world-class performances on and off the golf course.
Billed as ‘the most fun you’ll ever have at a golf event’, the annual showpiece at Asian Golf Industry Federation Golf Facility Member Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club (KLGCC) is set to attract record galleries.
On course, spectators will be able to watch the likes of Lydia Ko and Michelle Wie going head-to-head from a new, covered spectator grandstand overlooking the 18th green. A giant screen adjacent to the 18th will make for easy spectator viewing.
But it’s in the area of off-course entertainment that spectators can expect to see the most significant developments. With a large number of families and first-timers expected to attend, a variety of activities are being planned to suit all tastes.
Patricia Knudsen, popularly known as Patricia K, takes on the role of Resident DJ at the new ‘Courtyard’ marquee – a huge open-sided tent at the heart of the concourse, overlooking the players’ practise putting green and a stone’s throw from the 18th hole.
Complete with a Players Corner where visitors will get to meet the stars of the LPGA Tour, and food stalls serving an array of dishes prepared by KLGCC Head Chef Arnold, the venue is set to be the new social hub and meeting-point for the four-day festival.
Patricia K, the Danish-Malaysian model, DJ and television host, said: “I’m excited to be coming to the Sime Darby LPGA again. It should be a great few days with music, food trucks, lots of freebies – and the world’s best golfers – all in one place! It’ll be a great way to get out of the city and enjoy a day out with friends.”
A new look poolside Kids Zone located close to the golf, food and action will provide day-long entertainment for the little ones. Children under 12 will be granted free access to the pool, including all-day life-guard supervision, and a host of activities including face-painting, Xbox Games, game-stalls and a kids putting green.
