The Srixon Cup Celebrates its Fifth Edition

The fifth edition of the Srixon Club held recently at the Kota Permai Golf & Country Club (KPGCC) saw haze-free skies, perpetuating a lively and cheery atmosphere amongst the 132 participants.

“We were concerned with the hazy weather conditions the last few weeks and that the participation for the Srixon Cup wouldn’t be the same as previous years. However, we were surprised that all thirty-two flights were taken up and instead we had to squeeze in another to a total of thirty-three flights. The change in the weather was indeed a blessing as we saw the hazy conditions started to improve just a day before the tournament. We are indeed appreciative that we have loyal Srixon brand supporters coming out to support this event year after year. We couldn’t have done it without them,” said Mr Frankie Choo, Director of Transview Golf Sdn Bhd.
