In conjunction with Melaka 750 years celebration and the Yang Dipertua Negeri Melaka‘s 74th birthday, a special golf tournament will be held by the state of Melaka on 11 November 2012. Involving 750 players, the tournament will be held simultaneously at 4 renowned golf courses in Melaka; namely Ayer Keroh Country Club, Tiara Golf Club & Country Club, Orna Golf & Country Club and A’Famosa Golf & Resort. Every player will tee-off at 12.30 pm and will play 27 holes.
Twelve par 3 holes have been designated as the Hole-In-One. Every player will have three opportunities at three par 3s of each course to win the grand prize of a Chevrolet Colorado for the Hole-In-One prize. The prize is being sponsored by NAZA Quest, the official distributor of Chevrolet in Malaysia.
Representing NAZA to hand over the mock key to the organizer is Datuk Maruan Mohd Said, Senior Vice President, 4 Wheels Motor Group cum Chief Operating Officer of NAZA Quest Sdn Bhd.
“This model offers more technology and delivers more features and value than ever before. Interiors, exteriors and major mechanical features are all new, representing the most clean-sheet midsize truck program in Chevrolet’s 100-year history,” Datuk Maruan said.
The Colorado is said to be among the safest vehicles in its class, having been developed to meet the highest possible safety standards wherever it is sold. Included in the Colorado range are features such as Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System featuring Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, Traction Control, Hydraulic Brake Assist, Cornering Brake Control as well as driver and occupant airbag protection.
The NAZA Group of Companies have been active in supporting local sporting events such as the Jelajah 1Malaysia cycling race, International Sepak Takraw Federation (ISTAF) World Cup 2011 and the Chelsea Asia Tour 2011. The company has also been working together with the Ministry of Tourism Malaysia to introduce a new area of tourism in the country – sports tourism.
To date, the company has organised many regional motoring events in Malaysia such as the Asia Ducati Week, Ducati Borneo Experience and SEA HOG (South East Asia Harley-Davidson Owner Group) Rally.
Just two days ago, NAZA handed over the key to a brand new Chevrolet Colorado to the parents of Malaysia’s only female Olympic medalist, Pandelela Rinong, in appreciation of the national sports hero and her family, who has sacrificed a lot to see her be successful and make the country proud.
“As a vibrant Malaysian conglomerate, we feel very strongly that an active lifestyle is essential in promoting overall health, confidence and happiness. Hence, NAZA has always been an avid supporter of sporting events like this and we are greatly honoured to be sponsoring this prize for this sophisticated sporting event and to celebrate the beautiful state of Melaka,” said Datuk Wira SM Faisal Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin, Joint group Executive Chairman of NAZA Group of Companies.
