World’s craziest golf tourney unveiled
(The Edge)

The world’s first golf tournament with the highest number of novelty events will be held at the Kota Permai Golf and Country Club in Kota Kemuning, Selangor, on July 29.
The Golf Malaysia Crazy 30 Championship is a unique event that promises intense competition with 30 novelty event contests — the most ever held during a single 18-hole round.
The Crazy 30 Championship is to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Golf Malaysia magazine.
Participants can look forward to an exciting round of golf under the Stableford format, an attractive tournament goody bag, free flow of sponsored drinks, novelty event prizes and many rounds of lucky draws.
What makes the tournament unique is that golfers stand to win prizies for hitting a tree, landing in a bunker, cart path or the pin.
Top players in each of the four categories — Men’s A Division (handicap 12 and below), Men’s B Division (handicap 13-19), Men’s C Division (handicap 20-24) and Ladies’ Division (handicap 30 and below) — will each receive a variety of prizes.
And the craziest thing about this championship is that the grand winner of the
event is not the player who amasses the most Stableford points, but the player who is 30th overall.
Kota Permai Golf and Country Club’s general manager Tang Meng Loon says: “It will be a memorable year for both our Kota Permai members and Golf Malaysia readers as this tournament will be showcased extensively around the world. Corporations still continue to strongly support us, with numerous new partners coming on-board.”
Prizes for each of the 18 holes are sponsored by individual companies. The partners are: Emirates (Hole 1), Transview Golf (Holes 2 and 17), Ace Canning (Hole 3), AD Time (Hole 4), Singleton Whisky (Hole 5), Prestige Golf (Hole 6), Heineken (Hole 7), City Golf (Hole 8), Red Bull (Hole 9), Impiana
Hotel Kuala Lumpur (Hole 10), ONLY Golf (Hole 11), MST Golf (Hole 12), Eastin Hotel (Hole 13), Suzuki (Hole 14 for Hole-in-One) and Focus Point (Hole 14), Iskandar Johor Open (Hole 15), Tour Edge (Hole 16) and HSBC Premier (Hole 18).
This unique event, which is expected to be listed in the Guinness Book of Records, is open to all amateur golfers with an established handicap. The entry fee is RM300 per person (subscribers of Golf Malaysia) and RM350 per person (non-subscribers).
