Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Kota Permai Golf & Country Club and TPC Kuala Lumpur emerged as the big winners in the 2020 ParGolf People’s Choice Awards.
Kota Permai scooped no fewer than seven awards while TPC Kuala Lumpur claimed five accolades.
Other Asian Golf Industry Federation Facility Members to be recognised were Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club and The Els Club Teluk Datai.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there was no physical awards ceremony this year in what was the fifth edition of the annual public poll.
As in previous editions, the 2020 ParGolf People’s Choice Awards was based solely on golfers’ votes in an online poll, which ran from December 9, 2019 to February 25, 2020.
There were a total of 12 categories covering everything from golf course design and conditions to F&B and customer service, with the top three clubs in each category conferred digital certificates and online badges to recognise their success.
“The ParGolf People’s Choice Awards is certainly a great barometer for public opinion of golf clubs in Malaysia, as it is based solely on online voting. Our heartiest congratulations go out to all the award winners as they truly represent the cream of Malaysian golf and are constantly committed to the quest for excellence across all spheres of their operations,” said ParGolf Publisher Suzannah Gun Palmer.
“We would have loved to have our traditional awards ceremony, which has always doubled up as a fun golf industry gathering, but unfortunately are unable to do so due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Instead, we have emailed digital certificates and badges to the successful clubs and will present them with the actual certificates when the situation permits,” she added.
