Alumni invited to tee-off in Kuala Lumpur

The inaugural University of Adelaide Alumni Golf Tournament will tee-off at the prestigious Royal Selangor Golf Club in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday 21 April 2012.

Hosted by the Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor James McWha, the annual tournament will rotate between Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Adelaide in following years.

"This will be a fun way to play for your country and a great opportunity to network with distinguished alumni from around the globe on a superb , world-class golf course," said Professor McWha.

An optional afternoon practice round for golfers will be held before tee off on the first day, and in the evening guests are invited to attend the Annual Alumni Dinner in the Club's elegant Banquet Hall. Proceeds raised from a silent auction on the night will go towards providing scholarships for international students.

The second and main day of the tournament, on Sunday 22 April, will see participants competing for their country in a "Stableford" golf competition where the highest five scores will decide the winning country.

A perpetual trophy, supplied by Royal Selangor Pewter, will be presented to the winning team at a luncheon following the tournament. The winning team will hold the trophy until the 2013 tournament in Singapore.

Places in the tournament are strictly limited and participants can register their interest now to be kept up-to-date with further details of the program, including a competitive travel and accommodation package.
