Golf competition to be part of Asia Music Festival 2014 to promote tourism

Sarawak Tourism Board, the organiser of Asia Music Festival (AMF), together with Eastwood Valley Golf & Country Club will host a golf competition in conjunction with Asia Music Festival tomorrow.

The golf competition has become better known as one of the most anticipated events by the local and expatriate community in Miri. Therefore, the organiser of the music festival is hoping the golf competition will become a value-added event and will blend well with the music festival while promoting Miri as a tourist destination.

The AMF Golf Competition is open to 100 to 120 golf players and the response from Mirian golfers has been good so far. The game format will cover strokeplay over 18 holes of the golf course and tee-off time is expected to be at 12.30pm (shotgun start). Game registration will begin at 11am at Eastwood Golf & Country Club, Miri.

Sarawak Tourism Board together with Eastwood Valley Golf are still calling for more interested golfers to participate tomorrow with attractive prizes and goodie packs from STB waiting.

The winner of this golf competition will be announced during the Asia Music Festival night show at Eastwood Valley.

There are also golfing packages available inclusive of green fees, one complimentary ticket to Asia Music Festival as well as food voucher for purchase from the AMF Food Mart Village during the music festival.

The second edition of Asia Music Festival will be held today and tomorrow at Eastwood Valley Golf & Country Club. The inaugural event last year was a success with over 3,000 people attending the two-day event.

The organiser STB has set the event target to become yet another iconic music festival for Sarawak after the success of the Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) held in Kuching.
