The State of Selangor through Tourism Selangor is committed to exploring the opportunities and further leveraging via sports and golf tourism, as it plays a key role in fuelling the State’s economy through domestic tourism. This tourism segmentation does not only benefit golf operators — retail, accommodation, hospitality and transportation providers will also attain a positive impact from the travels. The buzz created from golf events will draw the tourists’ attention to nearby tourist attractions such as the ones near to the Tournament’s venue in Rawang; Taman Eko Rimba Kanching and Taman Eko Rimba Komanwel.
