Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has announced the return of the highly-anticipated MercedesTrophy, the renowned international golf tournament that is open to all Mercedes-Benz customers to experience the Mercedes-Benz lifestyle through their passion for golf. About 1,000 Mercedes-Benz Malaysia customers are expected to participate in the tournament.
The MercedesTrophy is an exclusive international invitation tournament series for Mercedes-Benz Malaysia who are golf enthusiasts. More than 60,000 golfers in more than 60 countries tee off at this exclusive golf tournament every year. MercedesTrophy was introduced in 1991 and has now established itself an event taking place on every continent. To date, over a million Mercedes-Benz customers and fans have teed off at the MercedesTrophy.
“Golf if a great sport that is played across all age groups and in my opinion, it is one of the most fascinating and multi-faceted sport there is. It is well-balanced with a combination of leisure, competition and camaraderie among players over the course of a rendezvous on the green. MercedesTrophy is a sporting event that reflects the brilliant connect of sports and lifestyle and underlines the premier status for Mercedes-Benz,” says Dr Claus Weidner, (above) President & CEO, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.
