Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: TPC Kuala Lumpur is leveraging on its achievements and experience to extend its services to outsourced course maintenance, landscape contracting and maintenance, and grass nurseries.
Steven Thielke, Chief Executive Officer of Sime Darby Property’s Leisure Business Unit, said: “The unpredictable weather in Malaysia makes landscaping and course maintenance very challenging for golf courses here.
“Therefore, we are seeing more demand for golf course maintenance outsourcing. By outsourcing the course maintenance and landscaping, golf clubs can focus on business development more efficiently.”
Having hosted three international tournaments – Maybank Malaysian Open, Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia and CIMB Classic – coupled with its state-of-the-art machinery and equipment and capable team of greenkeepers and experts in horticulture, TPC Kuala Lumpur is extending its services in this specialised field.
Meanwhile, a six-acre plot of land has been secured ‘to cultivate high quality cow grass’. The nursery will also cultivate Celebration Bermuda grass, exclusively for use on the West Course at TPC Kuala Lumpur, a Golf Course Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
TPC Kuala Lumpur’s Landscape and Nursery services portfolio includes projects in Elmina Township, Impian Golf and Country Club, KLGCC Resort, Bayuemas, Bukit Jelutong Golf Centre and Kota Seriemas Golf and Country Club.
