Each year, for the past 10 years, Lexus Malaysia has been connecting with its loyal customers through golf by hosting exclusive golfing events for Lexus owners. From 2012, the best players from this friendly golf tournament have been invited to participate in the Lexus Cup, a regional event organised by Lexus Asia Pacific.

The recently-concluded 2017 edition of the Lexus Golf Invitational in Malaysia saw Lexus owners from all over the country come together to enjoy a satisfying day of competitive golf and an evening of fun and social networking during the prize-giving ceremony at 3 locations, namely The Penang Golf Club; TPC Kuala Lumpur, and the Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club in Johor.

Participating in the Lexus Golf Invitational 2017 not only gave the golf lovers a chance to meet and interact with their peers but they also had the opportunity to experience the luxuries of Lexus. During the 3 rounds, the owners were treated to sumptuous meals with continuous refreshments during their session, a massage station, generous goodies, lucky draw prizes and much more.

The Lexus owners were also delighted by the surprise appearance of 2 Malaysian golf personalities, Michele Low and Michelle Koh, at the golf clinic before the tournament started. Both are Malaysians who currently play and compete in the Taiwan LPGA and China LPGA. The lady professionals were also tasked to the ‘Beat the Pro’ contest in which the owners thoroughly enjoyed the friendly contest and warm hospitality shown.

Besides Lucky Draws, attractive main prizes were also presented to the top scorers of each round. A Lexus NX200t Special Edition worth RM312,000 was offered as the hole-in-one prize but there was no winner this year.

The champions of each round were Lim Beng Hor (Penang Golf Club), Ong Chee Chang (TPC Kuala Lumpur), and Hoe Kim Sun (Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club), while the Overall Best Runner-Up was Siah Chong Yee (TPC Kuala Lumpur).

All four top scorers are invited to take part in the Lexus Cup 2017 to be held in Phuket, Thailand. They will compete against Lexus owners from other parts of Asia with the aim of again winning the Country Champion award which the Malaysian group won in the 2015 and 2016 events.

“The Lexus Golf Invitational tournament has been an annual event since Lexus Malaysia began operations in 2007. It is much appreciated by our customers, many of whom are avid golfers,” said Ravindran Kurusamy, President of Lexus Malaysia. “We are delighted to host the three rounds which serve as a run-up to the Lexus Cup 2017 that will be held in Phuket in October.”

”Our Malaysian team has done well in the past two years, collecting the Country Champion awards, and I hope that this year will see more success. All the best to the four winners who will represent Lexus Malaysia!” he added.
