Sime Darby offered a RM550,000 condominium as a prize. City Golf brought in its mobile simulator for the challenge with Maybank as the sponsor. KLGCC was the venue. The recently concluded Maybank Malaysian Open 2011 drew a large number of crowd to the event to witness Matteo Manassero secure his second European Tour win at the age of 17 years and 363 days, putting him first and second on the list of youngest European Tour winners.
City Golf helped the organizers of the Maybank Malaysian Open 2011, Global One, through a series of qualifiers for the Hole in One Challenge that teed off at Empire Gallery from the 1st to 10th April 2011 as the first stage. City Golf then set up its mobile golf simulator at Double Tree by Hilton to complement Maybank’s Evening with the Stars.
The Top 10 best scores from the Stage 1 at Empire joined the Top 20 best scores from Stage 2, organized during the first 3 days of the MMO (Maybank Malaysian Open), in the final on 17th April 2011 at 11am. A total of 21 finalists took part, each getting 3 shots at 3 different courses on the simulator – KLGCC, Pebble Beach and St Andrews.
