Friendly Game: Malaysia Vs. Indonesia
Golfers from Malaysia and Indonesia will play a friendly match at an event called “Malindo Golf Challenge 2016” on March 15th-16th. The two-day event will be held at two courses, Klub Golf Bogor Raya and Emeralda Golf Club. The tournament will feature 40 teams of golfers from each country.
The two days of matches will use the system of 36 to determine the respective handicaps and scoring in Stableford. "Although this is a tournament, we would consider Malindo as a bridge for friendship between Malaysia and Indonesia golfers. Therefore, we all want to have fun in a friendly tournament," said Dato' Haji Sahariman Hamdan, who represents the Malaysian team. Sahariman added that the Malindo event also helps encourage media to promote the ‘Visit Pahang Year 2017’ program since Malaysia will host the 2017 Malindo.
